The Hospitality Management undergraduate certificate provides entry-level management skills for those interested in employment or a career in the field. The certificate articulates into Kent State's bachelor's degree in hospitality and event management.
Certificates are also an excellent opportunity for students looking to ease into a degree program or for students currently working on a degree. Since each certificate program works differently in terms of time to completion, scheduling, delivery method, and financial aid, it's best to talk to an academic advisor to get all the details!
The university affirmatively strives to provide educational opportunities and access to students with varied backgrounds, those with special talents and adult students who graduated from high school three or more years ago.
Kent State campuses at Ashtabula, East Liverpool, Geauga, Salem, Stark, Trumbull and Tuscarawas, and the Twinsburg Academic Center, have open enrollment admission for students who hold a high school diploma, GED or equivalent.
For more information on admissions, contact the Regional Campuses admissions offices.
