Grow the sustainable lodging industry

and implement regenerative initiatives.


More and more travelers are seeking sustainable travel options, contributing to a growing demand for eco-friendly hospitality management. Be part of the solution by embracing regenerative hotels, a pioneering approach that tackles climate change, circular product management, waste reduction, and promotes culturally enriching travel experiences.

Our Regenerative Hotel Management degree at Unity equips you with the expertise to foster a greener future in hotels, resorts, and B&Bs. Join us and make a positive impact on the environment while managing diverse hotel operations.


Program Overview


A hotel manager oversees the day-to-day activities of a lodging facility. The hotel manager supervises staff, communicates with visitors, plans activities, manages budgets and financial reports, collaborates with suppliers and local vendors, enforces health and safety standards and hotel policies, and can be involved in developing marketing strategies and supply chain management.

Learners in the Regenerative Hotel Management program will do all that and more by providing insight into sustainable hospitality, including the sustainable use of resources and contributions to destination vitality, all while ensuring a positive guest experience. By connecting the hospitality industry to sustainable development goals (e.g., sustainable cities, clean water and sanitation, responsible consumption and production), learners will understand the sustainability challenges and opportunities for the hospitality industry.

Learners will also develop essential skills related to communication, entrepreneurship, and the “service mindset.” They will understand the breadth of the tourism and hospitality sector, gain familiarity with sustainability challenges associated with hospitality, learn about the sustainable hospitality movement, and be able to make recommendations for regenerative decisions related to supply chains, visitor experiences, and hotel operations.

Program graduates will be prepared to apply their skills to lodging management positions, including working for global hotel chains, resorts, smaller lodging facilities (e.g., B&Bs), or as independent lodging owners.
