The interdisciplinary nature of the degree entwines health management and hospitality as senior living facilities now include many hospitality services. This is the first full-blown degree program for senior living in the state of Florida, that factors in the hospitality management approach of exceptional customer service and the hedonic lifestyle. There is no patient care involved, just management of all aspects of a home or community.

This degree program will not require a medical or nursing background. Its major components will focus on general education, hospitality core courses, healthcare-management core courses and the senior living lifestyles to encompass lodging, food and beverage, events and entertainment, plus some electives. Senior Living Management focuses on the business aspects of directing independent living, memory care, assisted living and hospice care.

According to a 2018 Argentum report on senior living labor and workforce trends the total number of jobs in the senior living industry in 2016 was listed at 892,000.  At least 20% (178,400) are managerial jobs.
