Total Credits




1. Because HOSP courses are part of a closed enrollment program, students must declare a Hospitality Management Concentration before they can enrol in HOSP courses. Students coming from outside Commerce and Business Administration would benefit from a knowledge of spreadsheets, marketing and accounting before starting this concentration.

2. Students who plan to pursue a career in Hospitality would benefit from taking as many HOSP courses as possible. However, if needed, BUSN 3100 (Global Business Environment) and/or BUSN 3380 (Operations Management) may also be used to satisfy this requirement. If choosing these courses, it is important to note any additional pre-requisites that may be required. This information can be found on the Douglas College Course Catalogue website.

3. Because many of the HOSP courses are at the lower level (1000-2000 level), students may need to take one or more upper level courses in their CBA Elective in order to meet the requirement that at least 12 of the 21 credits in the specialization are at the upper level (3000-4000 level).
