|See the world and expand your opportunities.|
You've decided to join an international industry, so why not cross an ocean and get your feet wet in an international setting? Hospitality is a global industry and as a student working toward your hospitality degree, that means your career can be built around the corner or across the world. Through Hilton College's study-abroad programs, you can gain valuable international and intercultural experiences that just may give you the edge over other job candidates both here and abroad—not to mention the personal and educational experiences you'll not soon forget.
With direct partnerships in Peru, France, Hong Kong, Australia and Mexico, our programs run from two weeks to a full semester and offer a variety of courses from gaming to sports management to business and marketing. Whether you want to experience another culture, polish your language skills, create gourmet dishes in advanced test kitchens or learn more about tourism and wine production, all of our study-abroad programs will give you a better understanding of the hospitality business and make you a more informed "global citizen."
In addition to Hilton College's study-abroad programs, the University of Houston's Office of International Studies and Programs has a number of long-standing programs in place that you also can pursue. From Africa to India, Guatemala to Germany, Turkey to Vietnam, and just about every other country in between, opportunities abound, especially in Europe. The Semester at Sea program is also available through this office. Learn more here.
The opportunities are yours for the taking and the choices diverse and exciting. Whichever ocean you choose to cross, adventure and a whole new way of seeing the world await. And that's the very least you can expect from these world-class experiential study-abroad opportunities!
