The hospitality/tourism industry is the number one employer among service industries, and is fast becoming the largest single employment category of all industries worldwide. In the United States, hospitality accounts for a larger and ever growing portion of the country’s Gross National Product. Right now, over half a million jobs in the hospitality industry go unfilled each year, and that number is likely to continue to grow as the food service industry grows. Top ranked hospitality professionals have almost unlimited possibilities for career satisfaction as meeting/event planners for corporate events, association/non-profit events, government events, special events and expositions and large-scale convention business.
Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
