ATLANTA – Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business will introduce a Fast-Track Master's in Global Hospitality Management in fall 2013. The one-year program, which will be the only master’s-level hospitality program offered in Georgia, was created by Robinson’s Cecil B. Day School of Hospitality Administration.
“We developed the master’s in response to demand,” said School of Hospitality director Debby Cannon. “Months of dialogue with industry leaders and executives helped us realize the need for a program with a global emphasis.”
Intended for established hospitality professionals as well as for those seeking to enter the discipline, the Fast-Track Master's in Global Hospitality Management will develop a cadre of upper-level managers to meet the needs of the sector as it continues to grow worldwide.
The 10-course curriculum will be taught at GSU’s Buckhead Center on Tuesday and Thursdsay evenings. Candidates must hold a four-year undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university. Professional experience is preferred but not required.
In addition to their degree, graduates of the program will receive a Certificate of Specialization in Sustainable Hospitality Management.
