In this article, we provide information regarding the top 30 colleges for an associate’s degree in hospitality for 2015.

The hospitality industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. Graduates of accredited hospitality management programs are highly employable, gaining skills applicable to hotel and restaurant management, event coordination, and cruise ship and resort administration. According to the United States Department of Labor and Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook is favorable for hospitality management positions. In fact, the projected growth rate is 33 percent between now and 2022.

Methodology

To develop this list, we consulted NCES College Navigator as well as college websites and examined the percentage of applicants admitted and student-to-faculty ratio. We also looked at whether a school offered a bachelor or master’s degree in hospitality management in the event students completing an associate’s degree could continue their education. We developed a point system based on the factors examined. For example, a school that offered a bachelor’s degree earned one point, while a school that offered a master’s degree earned two points. Schools with a student-to-faculty ratio of 15:1 or better earned one point.

We then applied a similar point system for selectivity. In this case, if up to 40% of applicants were admitted, they earned three points. 41-50% earned two points, and 51-60% earned one point. Once the points were issued to each school, we examined award recognition. Schools that earned awards or ranked on listings were named higher on the list than schools that did not.

It should also be noted that the tuition and fees listed for each school was taken from College Navigator’s most recent publication. Because these numbers are subject to change without notice, it is important to check with the school directly if you are interested in pursuing an associate’s degree in hospitality.
