"My internship at the University Club of Missouri was educational, enriching and an eye-opening experience within the field of hospitality management. The diversity of the program format allowed me to gain hands on experience in multiple facets of a private club environment including; catering, banquets, a la carte dining, back of house operations, marketing and sales. The experience I gained at the University Club helped me achieve my goal of landing a management position after graduation at a Top 15 Country Club and has continued to pay dividends throughout my career. I highly recommend this program to any student interested in furthering their knowledge and advancing their career in the hospitality industry."
"The Internship helped me perfect my communication skills. I learned this through communicating clients' needs to operations team and instructing the team on how to deliver what the clients want. I also learned about general operations through learning who is responsible for what in my department and the organization as a whole. During the internship, you will have leadership opportunities. Learning how to effectively manage individuals and groups is an art and experience is the only way to learn. I also learned time management skills on how to manage my time when as a full-time student and working 25+ hours a week."
