Program Highlights

Bradford’s Hospitality and Travel program exposes students to the world of travel and events. Students learn to plan events and meetings at destination locations, such as hotels or convention centers. Most importantly, graduates are armed with the business communication skills needed to succeed.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, “personal travel experience is an asset because knowledge about a city or foreign country often helps influence a client's travel plans. Business experience or training is important for self-employed agents who run their own business. In addition, computer skills are necessary and essential, because most travel arrangements are now made using the Internet or electronic reservation systems.”

Bradford graduates work in:
•    Hotels and resorts
•    Corporate travel departments
•    Event planning businesses

At Bradford School, you’ll:
•    Learn important computer skills
