Program Full

Program Description:

The Rosen College of Hospitality Management (RCHM) exchange program with the University of Surrey, in Guildford, U.K. offers an opportunity to learn key skills, concepts and techniques needed for a successful career in Hospitality. The hospitality program at the University of Surrey has an excellent reputation for teaching and research in the sectors of hospitality, tourism and retail management, as well as the functional areas of entrepreneurship, marketing, technology management, and human resource management. The University of Surrey was founded in 1894.  It was known as Battersea Polytechnic Institute and located in London.  It was moved to Guildford and renamed the University of Surrey in 1966.

The structure of the academic programs at the University of Surrey promotes interdisciplinary collaboration.  The programs are divided into four Faculties: Arts and Human Sciences, Engineering and Physical Sciences, Health and Medical Sciences and Management and Law, which houses the School of Management. It is currently the academic home of approximately 12,000 students.

Guildford is the county town of Surrey, England, the seat for Guildford Borough, and the administrative headquarters of the South East England region. The town is located about some 50 km (31 miles) southwest of London. Guildford is about 40 minutes by train to the south west of London, and at accessible to both Heathrow and Gatwick international airports.
