Williston State College to offer new Hospitality Management course
WILLISTON, N.D. - The Business Technology Department at Williston State College would like to announce that beginning in March, an 8-week Introduction to Hospitality Management course will be offered.
Since 2010, the City of Williston has added 12 new hotel properties. "We saw a need for more formal training and agreed that an Introduction to Hospitality Management course would help meet the region's needs in this area," commented Serena Christianson, WSC's Business Program Coordinator.
The class runs March 4 through May 3 and meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1-2pm on the Williston State campus. Individuals may be interested in enrolling in this course for credit or merely as a professional development opportunity. Class topics include everything from operations, quality, and productivity to ethics and responsibility.
"This will be an exciting class to teach because it will be able to draw from real-life examples in our own community," Christianson stated. "Not only will we be learning from ‘textbook' material, but guest speakers will be brought in from the community to share insight from their own experiences."
Christianson also spoke about other courses possibly being added in the future, including those related to recreation management. "With the construction of the upcoming Williston Area Recreation Center, the potential need is there," she states.
She encourages those who have comments or suggestions to enhance the Business Management Program to contact her.
