UVICELLAccording to Webster’s Dictionary, hospitality is the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors and strangers. Hotels are a service industry. Webster Dictionary defines service as the action of helping or doing work for someone. Service and hospitality go hand in hand. You definitely want to offer the best quality when someone is paying to stay somewhere other than their own home. When you study how to manage quality service in hospitality, you learn how to treat all visitors as esteemed guests. Who wouldn’t want to feel that way? You learn how to give them the “WOW” factor. You even learn strategies on how to increase your quality of hospitality.

Hospitality is important in other areas of tourism and not just limited to hotels. If you study Hospitality Management, you could utilize your training and education in restaurants, casinos, on cruises and with all other kinds of recreational activities and facilities. Before the term “education” throws you and you begin imagining student loans piling up, take a deep breath. Degrees are wonderful, but aren’t necessary to have a successful career in hospitality. The UVICELL Center provides career-based programs that are a fraction of the price of a degree and can be taken entirely online.
