    The Master of Science in Hospitality Management (MSHM) program is an accelerated one-year program that prepares students for leadership positions in several areas of hospitality, including hotels and resorts, convention services, tourism boards and real estate development. The program also attracts those seeking to start their own business or who wish to switch careers from hospitality to academia. This program is also offered online.  

    Conducted primarily online, the MSHM program also involves two-week residencies at the beginning and end of the program so that students may build relationships and share information all while experiencing real-world situations to complement their studies. Students will reside in New Rochelle, just a 30-minute train ride from midtown Manhattan, during their two-week residencies.
