A New Direction in Hospitality

BU’s Master’s Programs in Hospitality Management  


With the recent boom in hospitality and tourism comes a new need for professionals who can understand, teach, and apply the methodologies behind good hospitality. Could that be you? 

Boston University now has two master’s programs for you to choose from: a one-year Master of Management in Hospitality (MMH) focused on experience-based hospitality leadership and a new two-year Master of Science in Hospitality Management (MSHM) focused on academic research and Ph.D. preparation. 

Boston is a global hub in hospitality. Our students learn to bring hospitality skills to the industry, which transcend into other service sectors including real estate, revenue management, senior living, sports, event management, retail, and entertainment.

Our faculty bring diverse perspectives to classes every day. Our insights are complemented by part-time faculty and guest lecturers from the industry, who are shaping the future of hospitality. 

BU provides students with experiences that many other schools simply cannot match. The school remains at the forefront of higher education through innovation, research, and unrelenting application of intellectual rigor.
