Whenever people travel, they need a temporary place to call home. And the more people travel—across the country or around the globe—the more homes away from home they will need. It’s a big reason why hospitality management is such an attractive program of study for students who seek a potentially lucrative career in the hospitality industry.
Lakeland University has great partnerships with some of the state’s top resorts, and Wisconsin is filled with premier tourist destinations and accommodations. Lakeland’s hospitality management program has always made good use of strong relationships with business partners in the training of its students.
