with Academic Internship at
Walt Disney World Resort
The University of Central Florida’s (UCF) Rosen College of Hospitality Management, working with Walt Disney World Resort, offers an intensive six-month Undergraduate Certificate Program in Hospitality & Tourism Management for international students who are currently enrolled in hospitality, tourism or business related programs in UCF’s international partnership universities (IPU). Students will take academic courses at the Rosen College and participate in an academic internship through the Disney International College Program at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, U.S.A.
The program offers you the thrill of working with a globally recognized hospitality brand – the Walt Disney World Resort – while earning a certificate from one of the top hospitality institutions in the world, the Rosen College of Hospitality Management. Students will earn 12 credit hours toward graduation at their home institution: 9 from course work and 3 from successfully completing the academic internship at the Walt Disney World Resort.
