The Hospitality Industry Management Studies (HIMS) major is housed in the Lerner College of Business & Economics. Core courses in this major include accounting, business computing, statistics, micro– and macro-economics, and public speaking.
This major requires students to complete 700 or more hours of approved industry internship experience in the area of focus and an additional 100 hours of approved community service activities prior to graduation. The internship must complement the customized focus area. Students select a concentration from one of these areas: Real Estate Development and Management, Hospitality Marketing and e-commerce, or Hospitality Revenue Management.
To declare a major in HIMS, students must have completed 15 credit hours and have a minimum GPA of 2.5 for 15-60 credit hours, or a minimum GPA of 3.0 for more than 60 credit hours. For additional information, contact Ms. Donna Laws at (302) 831-6077.
