PITTSBURGH-The Community College of Allegheny County is offering a Hospitality Operations Management Associate Degree program that is now 100 percent online. Students can complete the degree in as little as two years, and online classes offer the benefit of a flexible schedule that enables students or professionals to further their educational goals on their own time. The program includes an internship in a hospitality setting and is ideal for aspiring managers who want to continue to work while taking classes. A certificate program is also available for individuals who hold a degree in another field or who are seeking career advancement in the hospitality industry.

This program, which boasts a nearly 100 percent job placement rate, thoroughly prepares students for foodservice, lodging, health care and recreation management positions in the growing hospitality industry and hospitality-related businesses. These include restaurants, hotels and motels, hospitals, casinos, campgrounds, sports venues, amusement parks, cruise ships, resorts and clubs.

All classes are taught by experienced faculty, and a new course in hospitality event planning is being added for the spring 2020 semester. Additionally, all credits are transferable for students who want to continue their education at a four-year college or university.
