Scottsdale Community College’s Hospitality and Tourism Management program has reached a transfer agreement with Grand Canyon SCC logoUniversity’s Colangelo College of Business.

The agreement will allow SCC students to transfer up to 71 credits to GCU’s Hospitality Management bachelor’s degree.

According to a press release, GCU is launching its Hospitality Management degree this fall. Students entering the program this fall will be among the first cohort to receive a B.S. in Hospitality Management from the private, four-year school.

“Our role is to provide our students with quality transfer options,” stated Larry Williams, director of SCC’s Hospitality and Tourism Management program, in the release. “GCU’s new degree offers students another exciting option to consider.”

Dr. Randy Gibb, dean of GCU’s Colangelo College of Business, said the students entering the program will have opportunities to get real world experience with GCU-owned properties. The school opens a 150-room hotel this month and in February will open a restaurant at the hotel. It also will open a golf course in October and a conference center in 2016, according to the release.

“We’re very happy that the SCC hospitality and culinary programs wanted to work with us,” stated Dr. Gibb in the release. “We’re impressed with what SCC has done for students over the years.”

SCC’s Hospitality and Tourism Management program also has transfer agreements with Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University and other four-year schools, stated the release.
