Welcome! No word better sums up the hospitality industry, and Rebecca Heid, assistant professor of Hospitality Management at NCC, has a passion for welcoming that she brings into the classroom every single day. With a bachelor's degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management from Penn State, and an MBA in International Trade, she seeks to bring both best practices in the industry and the flavor of other countries into the curriculum.
"We encourage students to fulfill their career dreams - the options are endless, and students can travel anywhere in the world and find a position in this industry," Heid says.
Students need to have "a passion to work with people, and a willingness to constantly adapt and learn new things," Heid stresses. She tells her students "You can do anything with a hospitality degree, from the human resources side to the financial end. Find your passion!"
