Restaurant, Hotel and Institutional Management
Management career opportunities in the hospitality industry
The RHIM program prepares students for management career opportunities in the hospitality industry. The curriculum includes courses in nutritional sciences, arts and sciences, and both core and elective courses in RHIM. Classroom laboratory experiences keep pace with changes in the hospitality field and the required 1,200 hours of work experience allows students to become familiar with the hospitality industry. A 400-hour hospitality industry internship that can count toward the 1,200-hour work experience is also required. Texas Tech’s RHIM program, recognized as one of the top programs in the nation, offers a multidisciplinary approach to hospitality education. The curriculum is designed to prepare the student to meet both current and future hospitality needs. The program emphasizes problem solving and creativity in addition to strong practical laboratory experiences. The RHIM program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Programs in Hospitality Administration.
