For people who love working with customers and enjoy the travel, tourism, and leisure activity market, the hospitality industry may be just the right fit. ASUMH offers students classes, activities, and work experiences designed to foster their personal, academic, and professional growth.

The hospitality industry is one of the most fascinating, fun, and stimulating to work in where it does not take long before advancement opportunities come along. A degree plus experience enables almost anyone with the service spirit to enjoy success. Businesses in the hospitality industry are almost all labor intensive. While modern technology and automation have certainly changed many aspects of how establishments serve and entertain people, it still takes a lot of hands to make things run smoothly in the hospitality industry.
