The Rosen College of Hospitality Management (RCHM) exchange program with Griffith University offers an option for UCF hospitality students to study their discipline in a non-USA setting. Griffith structure encompasses a group of multi-disciplinary, theme-oriented schools that involve groups of disparate scholars who integrate their research and teaching in problem-solving units. The Griffith Business School is one of those schools. The Department of Tourism, Leisure, Hotel and Sport Management, located within the Business School, offers a series of programs associated with Hospitality Management. Griffith University has five campuses in three cities across the Brisbane-Gold Coast corridor. The campuses house 46 schools and faculties, as well as several independent academic centers, colleges and institutes not aligned directly to the study areas. It has over 37,000 students.
