Department of Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Hospitality and Tourism

Teaching skills to be innovative & successful in the business world

In the Bryan School’s Department of Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Hospitality and Tourism, we are eclectic in nature since we combine several subject areas that are often stand-alone departments. But we believe that this combination of academic interests results in a strong multidisciplinary advantage to students who want to choose from a wide range of courses, while retaining enough coursework in each area to satisfy those students who are interested in specializing in one of our disciplines.
