What is a Bachelor in Restaurant Management? This specialized degree prepares students with organizational, customer service and business skills to enter one of several jobs in a restaurant or hotel eatery setting. Students learn a mixture of business principles, food-related best practices and entrepreneurial skills. This type of degree also typically arms students with knowledge of sanitation practices, front-of-the-house and back-of-the-house management skills as well as kitchen prep skills. Most importantly, students gain an in-depth understanding of the communication and customer service skills needed to be a truly effective manager.

Graduates with this degree enter the workforce with specialized knowledge gained by intensive classroom study in addition to hands-on experience. This is one of several benefits, including coming to potential employers with proven qualifications.
