This 3 credit hour course is designed to engage students in an intense study of the Hospitality Industry in a location very relevant to the field. Chicago, visited in conjunction with the National Restaurant Association Show, serves as a prime venue for those pursuing careers in Hospitality. Students will experience varied aspects of the industry through tours, attendance at the NRA Show, and trips to a number of corporate headquarters, hotels, city clubs, and special events venues throughout the Chicago area.
The class consists of on-campus meetings prior to travel, the trip to Chicago, admission to the NRA Show, industry appointments, and other tourism activities during the week spent in the city. A special note: All students will be required to work the UNT booth (and/or our sponsor’s booth) during the show (details to be determined based on final class enrollment).
