Our Degree Programs
|Two degrees. Three years. One incredible advantage.|
How would you like the opportunity to earn both a Master of Science in Hospitality Management and a Master of Business Administration concurrently—and in only three years? Think about the potential for advancement such a program could provide for you as a hospitality executive. Welcome to our joint master's program, offered through two of the University of Houston's top-ranked colleges—the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management and the C. T. Bauer College of Business.
Through this program, you can earn both your MS and your MBA in less time than it would take to earn each degree independently. This unique joint program requires a minimum of 63 semester hours, and for full-time students, both degrees can be completed in less than three years.
The MS in hospitality management program includes core courses in business, management and research, as well as a practicum that provides industry experience in a chosen specialty. Support courses in topics such as hospitality marketing and food & beverage management, focus courses on subjects such as casino management and revenue management and a variety of electives round out the degree.
The joint degrees program at Bauer College of Business is composed of 30 hours of core classes that offer an essential overview of business knowledge, as well as 18 hours of electives chosen from a variety of career-related concentrations. Students in the joint master's program can use 12 hours of MS program courses to fulfill this elective requirement.
You must apply separately to the two programs and meet admissions requirements for both. Once you have been admitted to the first graduate program, you must gain admission to the second program within one calendar year. You will receive two diplomas, but you must file for graduation with both degrees in the same semester.
Many of our graduate students have taken advantage of this powerful combination of degrees and agree it is a valuable opportunity to improve one's career.
