The Hospitality Certificate of Achievement provides an opportunity to gain broad hospitality industry knowledge and specific skills that will enable students to gain employment and advance within the industry. The hospitality certificate is also the foundation for those who are interested in furthering their education in the hospitality field.
Many employers engaged in the tourism, restaurant, and hotel industries in Sonoma County are expressing a need for employees who have hospitality industry skills.
Jobs in hospitality are expected to increase at a growth rate of almost twice the average for all occupations in the State. Hospitality is currently listed among the fifty occupations having the largest absolute growth in California. An additional 2,850 jobs will occur as a result of experienced managers leaving the labor market, with opportunities greater in major metropolitan and resort areas.
More information about the Business Administration programs can be found at the Business Administration website.
