Hospitality Management

With a Graduate Certificate in Hospitality Management, you can supplement the education you’ve already received by participating in post-graduate research—and you can do it all quickly and on your own schedule.

This program is geared toward students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree in a related area and would like to gain knowledge of the hospitality industry.

Three of the required courses correspond to courses in the M.B.A. specialization in hospitality management. Three additional courses combine for a total of 18 credits for the certificate.

To become a graduate certificate student at Lynn, you’ll need to apply for and be accepted to the M.B.A. with a specialization in Hospitality Management program.

And if you ever decide to take your education further, the courses you take in this certificate program can be used toward the M.B.A. with a specialization in Hospitality Management.
