Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management (HR&IM) - (ARCHIVE)

PROFESSOR SARA C. PARKS, in charge

This major helps provide preparation for management positions in hotels, restaurants, institutions, and other hospitality organizations. The program is designed to give the student a broad general education and a strong management and problem-solving orientation balanced with the requisite technical skills, all of them essential for career progression to upper-management positions in the hospitality professions. The program also helps prepare students for graduate study.

The B.S. degree program consists of two options: (1) Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management and (2) Management Dietetics. A minimum of 124 credits is required for the B.S. degree with the HR&IM option; a minimum of 131 credits is required for the B.S. degree with the Management Dietetics option.

HOTEL, RESTAURANT, AND INSTITUTIONAL MANAGEMENT OPTION: This option helps prepare students for management positions in any segment of the hospitality industry, including hotels, restaurants, institutional or non-commercial operations, clubs, resorts, and casinos. The management focus helps provide students with the analytical, interpersonal, and organizational skills necessary to effectively function as hospitality professionals.

MANAGEMENT DIETETICS OPTION: This option helps prepare graduates for general management positions within the food services operated by or for medical organizations, health and life care facilities, college feeding, governmental agencies, and community feeding programs. The management dietitian is qualified to solve both nutrition and food service problems. Graduates may also choose to work in the management of commercial food service operations. Together with the necessary clinical experience, the option satisfies the eligibility requirements for membership in the American Dietetic Association.
