  3. Boston University Questrom School of Business
  4. University of Nevada, Las Vegas - William F. Harrah College of Hospitality
  5. University of Houston - Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management

The MBA program with a focus on Hospitality, Travel, and Tourism is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to manage hospitality, travel, and tourism organizations. The program typically covers various areas of the industry such as hotel and resort management, airline and airport management, tourism planning and development, event management, and more.

  • Combined Degrees: Some institutions offer dual degree programs combining an MBA with a Master of Tourism Management or similar fields, providing comprehensive business and industry-specific education.

  • Contact Admissions Offices: Reach out directly to admissions counselors at universities you are interested in. They can offer detailed information about course offerings that may not be prominently featured online.
  • Look at Course Listings: Sometimes the best way to gauge if a program will meet your needs is to look at the specific courses offered under potential programs. This can also reveal elective or specialization opportunities that are not immediately apparent from the program summary.
  • Networking: Connecting with alumni or current students through platforms like LinkedIn or university forums can provide insights and first-hand experiences about the programs.

By considering these options and broadening your search to include related degrees, you should be able to find a program in the USA that aligns with your career goals in hospitality and travel & tourism.
