If you love the exciting and varied aspects of the hospitality industry, you should consider HGTC's Hospitality Management degree program. An Associate in Science in General Business with a Hospitality Management emphasis prepares you for entry-level employment at the management level of the hospitality industry, including lodging, tourism, and food services. With millions of visitors to our area, numerous internship and employment opportunities exist in hospitality and tourism, the largest industry in South Carolina. Students will participate in Supervised Cooperative Work Experience (SCWE) to provide them with a working knowledge of day-to-day hospitality-management operations.
