Miami Dade College

A guaranteed path to success

The FIU Connect4Success partnership allows you to start at MDC and finish at FIU’s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management. You may complete the program 100% online or on-campus in Miami where our school is just feet away from the beautiful Biscayne Bay. You have the option to either complete the B.S. in Hospitality Management or the B.A. in Global Sustainable Tourism.
