The story is similar for most of our members…you’ve been building your business from the ground up for years, passing it on from one generation to the next, all while continuing to make every effort to strengthen the local tourism industry. To complement your efforts, there’s a peace of mind that comes from knowing that Black Hills State University is the resource for students who share the same dream—to work in the Tourism & Hospitality Management field.

Through internships, guest lectures, and field trips, students learn from you—the talented and experienced entrepreneurs and professionals who have made tourism and hospitality the region’s top economic sector. The Tourism and Hospitality Management (THM) Program is a specialization within the Business Administration Major (BADM) in the School of Business.

As part of this program, students will take the same pre-Business and Business core courses required of all BADM majors, followed by 18 semester hours of courses focused on tourism and hospitality management, e.g., restaurant management, lodging management, tourism planning and development, conventions, meetings, and event planning. Students will leave prepared to be leaders in the exciting and growing hospitality and tourism field at Black Hills State University.
