Washington State University logo

LTCC entered into an agreement with Washington State University, a top-tiered research university, in November 2018 to offer a degree in Hospitality Business Management (HBM) through WSU Global Campus.

A hospitality business management degree is ideal for those interested in careers in casino, hotel and restaurant management, tourism, event planning, operations, and sales. At WSU you will engage in real-world learning and be fully prepared for success in the hospitality industry by the time you graduate.

Students currently can take all their courses online or streamed live, and WSU is planning to offer face-to-face courses on the LTCC campus beginning Fall 2019. Other opportunities to interact with HBM faculty will include seminars and workshops, both in person and online. Students can participate in study abroad as well.

WSU’s School of Hospitality Business Management, established in 1932, ranks among the top programs in the nation and is part of WSU’s AACSB-accredited Carson College of Business. Students in the program are eligible to apply for financial aid, and WSU’s School of Hospitality Business Management awards over $125,000 in scholarships annually.

Complete your first two years at LTCC, earning a business transfer AA degree, then apply for admission to WSU Global Campus. Applications are currently being accepted for admission to WSU Global Campus for Summer or Fall 2019.
