Is the HTM Master’s Program for you?
What is the HTM Master’s Program?
The San Diego State University Hospitality and Tourism (HTM) Master’s Program is a leadership development program designed for busy working professionals from all over the world and delivered online in a small class setting, with one-week meet-ups on SDSU’s beautiful campus to both start and finish the program.
HTM Master’s courses are recorded weekly by our professors and personalized to your specific aspirations and activities.
If you enjoy TED Talks, you will love our guest video lectures from globally accomplished leaders during your program. All of the program’s courses are tailored to real-world applications that you can apply the next day in your office.
The curriculum is a combination of foundational business acumen and innovational thinking that is changing the way organizations function, grow, and thrive. Students who graduate with a Masters in HTM are prepared to lead change.
The coursework amounts to a challenging but manageable 10-12 hours per week of reading, assignments, and forum discussions that can be completed on your schedule. The projects are geared toward real-word applications that provide much more than a letter grade as an outcome.
This intensive 18-month program gives you the support, network and encouragement you need to thrive and succeed throughout the course.
