Miami Dade College Educational Resources

Hospitality Management Program
In the Hospitality Management program, you can acquire a practical and theoretical foundation for the skills and leadership in the exciting fields of hotel operations, food and beverage, cruise lines, event/convention planning.  Students can earn a two-year Associate in Arts degree or Associate in Science degree - or go on to complete a four-year Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Supervision and Management with a hospitality concentration right here at Miami Dade College.

College Credit Certificates are offered in Rooms Division, Food and Beverage Management and Cruise Line Operations.  You can earn a certificate with as few as four courses, and those courses earn credits that can later be applied towards a degree.

Specifically designed for working professionals with input from industry advisors, Food & Beverage Specialist and Rooms Division Specialist College Credit Certificates are now offered in an accelerated and flexible online format in our online Competency Based Education (CBE) Programs.
