There are several theories on what the “proper” education looks like for a career in the hospitality field. Some say that to be a success in business, you have to start at the bottom and work your way to the top. While experience is a great teacher, the world of hospitality is becoming increasingly competitive and technical in nature. More and more, restaurateurs don’t have time to wait for managerial candidates to work their way up through the ranks.
Instead, they turn to professionally-educated individuals who arrive at work industry ready. We believe that as the hospitality field continues to grow and become more technologically advanced, a four-year degree is critical for upper-level management positions.
The programs offered at Walnut Hill College combine intensive academic studies with practical experience. This means that students can fine tune the knowledge gained in their courses of study and apply it in a challenging, real-world setting. Upon program completion, our graduates are prepared for a variety of exciting positions in the industry and have amassed experience that can lead to increased marketability and earning potential.
