Whether you are looking to improve your leadership skills, advance in your current career, change careers or expand your network—the Hospitality and Tourism Management Master’s Program at San Diego State University can help you transform your life for the better.

Our program is focused on personal leadership development that is applicable to any industry.

The HTM Master’s program at SDSU also pairs every student with a mentor for hands-on advice and real-world coaching through one-on-one mentorship.

Our program only requires you to be on-campus in San Diego for one week in the beginning of the program and one week at the end, so we have students attend from all over the world. You will enjoy online courses that are pre-recorded and delivered in a digital format. All of our students have busy lives full of work, family, and friends so we make sure our classes are flexible. You can get your master’s degree without sacrificing what’s important to you. And, there is nothing “boxed” or “cookie-cutter” about our lectures. Each week you get a new lecture from your professor with your personal career path in mind.

While many master’s programs can run $80,000-120,000, the San Diego State University HTM Master’s Program comes in around $30,000 for the entire program. With financial aid readily available, our students are excited about the affordable investment they are making in themselves and in their future.

The program takes just 18 months to complete and there is no thesis required. Instead, the program focuses on an in-company project that gives you the opportunity to do something innovative with your new skills. This isn’t a degree that you have to wait for the completion of for it to start changing your life. The courses are intended to impact behavior now. The HTM Master’s Program is designed to help you change your career path and become a better leader. What are you waiting for?
