This dual degree is offered by the Harrah Hotel College in conjunction with UNLV’s Lee Business School. The 48-credit MS HOA/MS MIS degree is for those who seek career opportunities in the information technology sector of the hospitality industry. The 24-credit MS MIS portion of this degree helps students develop critical skills in information technology systems analysis and design.
The MS HOA portion of the degree (24 credits for the MIS dual) helps students acquire knowledge specific to the management of hospitality operations. This program will take at least three years (six semesters) to complete. The completion of a professional paper is included in the credit total of the program.
The admission requirements for the dual degree program is the same as those stated under the MS MIS and MS HOA programs. Dual MS MIS applicants may take the GRE or the GMAT. All dual program applicants are required to show that they have at least one year of full-time management/supervisory experience or three years of cumulative full-time front-line experience in the hospitality industry.
