Workforce Solutions for the Hospitality Industry
Committed to producing graduates who impact your organization
At University of Phoenix we understand the challenges facing the hospitality industry. What draws guests, especially repeat guests is how well they are served. You require a well-trained team armed with the skills to provide the highest level of service, create unforgettable events and efficiently manage the processes and business that take place behind-the-scenes.
Creating pathways for growth and advancement
University of Phoenix 24/7 learning experience addresses the needs of working learners – including employees in 24/7 industries, like hospitality. Our online learning platform makes it possible for your day- and night-shift work force to get the same quality education, aligned to meet hospitality industry needs:
- Industry-aligned programs
We offer degree-completion programs, full degree programs, as well as continuing education and professional development courses. Our Bachelor of Science in Business (BSB) 1 with a concentration in the Service Sector program provides a strong background for a hotel manager or revenue manager and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
- Partnerships that provide hospitality-specific solutions
University of Phoenix has partnered with the American Hotel and Lodging Association’s education division to help us develop programs that target key issues facing the hospitality industry today.
- Relevant degree programs
In addition to our BSB degree program, we offer a range of associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs relevant to careers within the hospitality industry, including concentrations in human resource management, marketing, accounting, and information technology.
- Apply prior learning to skills needed today
Through our Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process, your employees may be able to earn college credits for competencies acquired from on-the-job training, corporate education, and prior academic experiences. If granted, PLA not only emphasizes how past education is relevant today, but the added credits may shorten the time to degree completion.
- Continuing education and professional development
Through our School of Continuing Education, University of Phoenix offers hotel and lodging employees professional development opportunities through single-courses, certificates, and non-degree programs. Employees interested in enhancing their knowledge can take the relevant for-credit and non-credit courses they need.
- Learning teams
Hospitality is a guest-centric industry, which is why strong communication abilities and teamwork skills are so important. Our Learning Team approach to education cultivates improved communication, teamwork skills, leadership abilities and a sense of accountability to a team.
