Traveling widens one’s horizons in both literal and figurative ways. It’s known in a nice way to the students in Niagara University’s College of Hospitality and Tourism Management, whose internships can take them from five-star resorts on Italy’s Lake Como to the Amazon rainforests near Machu Picchu, Peru. Kurt Stahura, the college’s Dean said that when he interviews every senior before graduation who has had an international internship, they speak of international experience besides their career.
The college, which became only the seventh in the country to be accredited in 1993, has more than 300 students. There are bachelor’s degrees in hotel and restaurant management, tourism and recreation management and sport management.
There are also Master’s degrees. Ample options exist for students to do internships in the United States, including at the Waldorf-Astoria and the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan, and elite country clubs in Atlanta and Chevy Chase, Md. Students completing such programs are recruited by the best employers in the industry.
