Hospitality Management


We offer three different associate degrees in hospitality management, including hotel management, restaurant management, and meeting and event planning—the only AAS degree of its kind in Pennsylvania. In addition to the three associate degree options, we also offer several one-year specialized diploma programs to set you on the fast track to your career.

A unique specialized diploma to NCC is Craft Distiller. It is the only credit program in the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions that concentrates on distilling. The degree combines, agriculture, science, and education.

Why go on vacation when your work could feel like one? If working in five-star resorts, chic city eateries, craft beverage facility, or tourism destinations sounds like your dream job—the hospitality management programs at NCC can help launch your career.

Your success is at the heart of each and every hospitality program we offer. Our career services department help students prepare for job interviews and support alumni as they enter the professional world. These programs can also serve as jumping off points for transferring into four-year bachelor degree programs in hospitality management.
