A global view is essential for anyone interested in a career in the hospitality and tourism industry.  Our industry recruiters overwhelmingly recommend that students participate in a study abroad experience.   The opportunity to gain an understanding of how to maneuver through diverse cultural experiences, gain a broad understanding of the business world, and become a global citizen is invaluable.  We offer two HTM programs: Winter Session in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and a semester abroad in Alicante, Spain. Students can also choose to participate in our short-term programs: Global Fire South Korea: Events ManagementGlobal Fire: Business Strategy in Korea, or Global Fire: Caribbean Track: Corporate Cruise Culture
