The Jack C. Massey College of Business is excited to incorporate the Hospitality & Tourism Management major into our programs of study.

The Hospitality & Tourism Management program prepares students to become practitioners in this growing field by engaging them in real-world experiences. While housed in the Massey College of Business, students take coursework in public relations and communication studies while also taking advantage of a built-in internship and capstone experiences.

Graduates are qualified to find employment in a variety of areas, such as convention and visitors’ bureaus, destination management organizations, conference centers, resorts, hotels, entertainment venues and restaurants.

The field of travel and tourism continues to see increases nationally and globally. Nashville has seen unprecedented growth in the field of tourism with record-breaking numbers of guests visiting Music City, U.S.A., and this growth in tourism has also impacted the lodging industry. The immense growth in tourists to Nashville has fostered the opening and development of fifteen hotels since 2016 with an astounding 20 new hotels to open by 2020.

Nashville’s vibrant music scene, professional sports, museums and overall entertainment options make us an exemplary travel destination for families, young professionals, conference attendees and those who want to experience one of the Nation’s “Friendliest Cities in America.”
