Many individuals who aspire to manage hotels and restaurants enroll in a bachelor’s or associate’s degree program related to hospitality, lodging and tourism. However, there are a few schools offering more specific degrees in the field, such as the Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

Bachelor degrees in hotel and restaurant management are 4-year programs that offer the management skills, financial knowledge and problem-solving abilities required to oversee a staff and guarantee smooth operations at a tourism-related establishment. Most programs also require degree candidates to complete an internship or work-study experience at a local lodging or food service facility.
