Experiential Learning

Our students gain real-world experience while going to school. Externships, or field experiences, are a required part of the curriculum. Students learn on-the-job while working at least 320 hours for leading hospitality companies throughout the United States. These externships are often life-changing for students and give them a competitive advantage upon graduation.
