You can choose to be completely online one week and only partially online next week. Students who live in other states, are traveling, or just can’t make it to class may work online completely. Or, they can reduce their computer-screen time by participating in part-time lab/classroom opportunities at real companies and venues. This is learning at its best!

SAVE these dates and watch your course site for more detailed information.

Chart your career path in Meeting and Event Management, Hospitality Lodging Management, or Spa-Resort Management.
