University of New Haven (School of Hospitality and Tourism-Department of Culinary Arts & Gastronomy)




Hotel and Restaurant Management

Advisor: C.E. Vlisides, Associate Professor, PhD, University of Texas

The program in hotel and restaurant management is an integral part of the Tagliatela School of Hospitality and Tourism. The department includes among its teaching staff a number of successful members of the industry who contribute their expertise in the classroom. They include Michael Schaffer, owner of four lodging operations in the Greater New Haven area, and David Jurcak, the General Manager of the Omni Hotel, a four-star hotel property in New Haven.

To those who enjoy interacting with many diverse people, who seek a continuous challenge, and who thrive on details and deadlines, a career in hotel and restaurant management offers a variety of professional, personal, and financial rewards.

The curriculum focuses on the development of managerial skills, abilities, and competencies essential to all hospitality managers. Students learn to communicate, to lead, and to adapt in a multicultural environment. The diversified knowledge necessary for the management of the modern lodging or restaurant operation requires an educational background grounded in both theory and application. The hotel and restaurant curriculum at UNH is designed to permit classroom theory to be applied in various hospitality settings.

The blend of courses is designed both to provide a broad industry overview and to allow the student to specialize in operational areas. To ensure that our majors are well grounded academically for a career and for lifelong learning, the curriculum has been designed to build on the university' s core curriculum liberal studies.

The hospitality industry demands that graduates of hotel and restaurant programs understand the needs of guests and be able to provide a personal service orientation in a global marketplace.

BS, Hotel and Restaurant Management

The programs in this discipline center on conceptual and technical knowledge required in the leadership and management of modern hotels, motels, and restaurants. The program emphasizes interpersonal communication skills, critical analysis, flexibility, and creativity from the perspective of the manager of operations.A student earning a bachelor of science degree in hotel and restaurant management will develop skills, abilities, and competencies essential to all hospitality leaders and managers. Students must complete 40 courses equaling 121 credit hours, a 1000-hour practicum, and 400 hours of internship in the industry.

Since every aspect of the hospitality industry is involved with or depends on people, students are required to enroll in courses on human resources management and supervisory leadership.

With the advent of new technology, innovative private and non-profit operations, changing expectations of guests, the shifting demography of the workforce, and the globalization of our industry, today's students must be able to recognize and adjust to change. Upper-class courses, particularly those in hospitality research and marketing, form the management approach to meet the changes and challenges of the new century.
