Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management


Welcome to the HRIM Program

The Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management program prepares students for employment in various entry-level management careers in the lodging and food service industries. Areas of employment include assistant manager in hotel/motel operations; club, restaurant or banquet manager of commercial eating establishments; and assistant food service management positions in hospitals, schools and other institutions.

The program includes an internship in a hotel, restaurant or institutional food service facility. Placement assistance is offered by program faculty and available through cooperative agreements with hotels, food service facilities, and restaurants in the Mercer County area.

Students may study full-time or part-time. Most courses are offered both day and evenings.

Most of the credits earned in acquiring the A.A.S. degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management can be applied to the B.S. degree offered through articulation agreements with Fairleigh Dickinson University and Johnson & Wales University.

Admission to the program requires a high school diploma or its equivalent.


MCCC is closed until at least April 6, possibly longer, class restaurants will be canceled until the college reopens. Ticket refunds will be issued for any closed dates. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to serving you upon the college returning to normal operations. Until then, if possible and comfortable, please support our local restaurants/bakeries (via take-out and gift cards). Our local businesses, really need your support during this difficult time. Most importantly, please keep your families and yourself healthy and safe.
