The University of Nebraska–Lincoln professional HRTM program combines classroom instruction with experiential learning to help move you into management positions. Here at Nebraska, we focus on leadership and business. You can choose a specific emphasis for your expertise from Event Management, Lodging, Restaurants, Tourism, Food and Beverage Management or Human Resources.

All courses are taught by faculty who combine excellent academic credentials with strong professional backgrounds. All are experienced and distinguished professionals who will give you personal attention, an excellent foundation and challenge you to be the best in the business.

With an academic background tailored for you and designed to meet current industry needs, HRTM students graduate well on their way to a successful career.

On top of all that, you'll have opportunities to travel domestically or internationally on study tours; work at three different hands-on internships; or even study abroad. Some of our students have interned for organizations like the College World Series, Disney, Hilton International, HUMANeX Ventures; some travel to Las Vegas, New York, India, Europe, South Africa, even Sydney, Australia.
