What is the HTM Master's Program?

The Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) Master's Program is a leadership development program designed for busy working professionals from all over the world and delivered online in a small class setting, with one-week meet-ups on SDSU's beautiful campus to both start and finish the program. HTM Master's courses are recorded weekly by our professors and personalized to your specific aspirations and activities.

The curriculum combines foundational business acumen with the innovative thinking that is changing the way businesses function, grow, and thrive. Students who graduate with a Masters in HTM are prepared to lead change in their organization and throughout the tennis industry.

The coursework amounts to a challenging but manageable 10-12 hours per week of reading, assignments, and forum discussions that can be completed on your schedule. The projects have real-word applications, with outcomes that provide you with much more than a letter grade.

This intensive 18-month program gives you the support, network, and encouragement you need to thrive and succeed throughout your career.
