About Our Program

As a comprehensive research university, the mission of the Virginia Tech Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) graduate program is to develop students’ ability to systematically recognize, analyze, and address the challenges and problems of hospitality and tourism businesses.

The MSBA-HTM program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The Pamplin College of Business is one of only 5% of business schools worldwide accredited by this prestigious, international accreditation body. Read more about the AACSB accreditation.

Two principles permeate our graduate programs. First, our graduate programs focus on the application of theories and methodologies from a variety of disciplines to the critical challenges and problems of hospitality and tourism management businesses; the department provides extensive opportunities for graduate students to partner with faculty to conduct research on significant industry problems. Second, the program is customized to each student’s interests. Degree candidates and their advisory committees plan uniquely individual graduate programs pursuant to the student’s career goals and degree requirements.
