Location, Location, Location...

CSUMB's campus is located in the heart of California's Monterey Peninsula – a premium destination where sustainability is a way of life.

This is the perfect backdrop to the central core of the BSSHM program, which is the concept of "sustainability plus": going beyond sustainability to address issues in terms of the five-dimensioned lens of People, Ethics, Equity, Planet and Profit. Students can focus in sustainable hotel, resort and event management or sustainable ecotourism management.
