Florida State University (School of Hospitality)

The program in hospitality administration was established in 1947 in recognition of the demand for hotel and restaurant industry executives, with the objective of providing the kind of education tomorrow's hospitality manager will need. The curriculum is designed so that students must meet high standards of achievement in general education and must acquire not only the specialized knowledge needed for their hospitality industry careers, but also understand the basic functions, objectives, and tools of management that are common to executive roles. Students may choose to specialize in Lodging Management, Conventions and Events Management, Food and Beverage Management, and Club Management.

The Dedman School of Hospitality is located in the University Center Building B, which provides for the specialized academic/training objectives established by the school. In addition to classrooms, this state-of-the-art facility provides hospitality students with teaching kitchens, a satellite technology center, a publication resource center, and a placement center. The building also contains an affiliated 35,000 square-foot, professionally managed city club that provides hospitality students with real-world food and beverage experience in elegant surroundings.

The Facilities also include the Dave Middleton Golf Complex and the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course, which are home to the PGM program. A state-of the-art training facility, a pro shop, restaurant, faculty offices, and classrooms complement the 18-hole golf course.

One of the most rewarding benefits of an education in hospitality administration at Florida State University is that through the years a personal, intimate, congenial climate, in which students may develop to their fullest potential, has remained a chief attraction. All of the school's energies and resources are devoted exclusively to preparing each student for a professional career.

The Dedman School of Hospitality is nationally and internationally recognized as one of the best. Many firms visit the school each year to interview students for entry-level management positions. Graduates of the program enjoy top managerial and ownership positions in hotels, resorts, restaurants, clubs, and other facets of the hospitality and golf industries. The requirement of practical, on-the-job experience, where the student applies classroom knowledge to the workplace, prepares the Dedman School of Hospitality graduate for the operational challenges of industry.
