UNLV Hospitality: Unique Opportunities

Dedicated to Integrating Work and Study

Jennifer came to UNLV with a passion for hospitality and graduated with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to build a successful career. In addition to work/internship experience, Jennifer was able to add major project work and research to her resume during her time as a student. The month she graduated, Jennifer not only had a job waiting for her, but she also had a research paper published in a top-tier hospitality journal. This would not have been possible without the one-on-on support of our expert faculty and committed staff.
