“With a bachelor’s degree from Turkey and three years' experience in the hospitality sector, I chose the SF State Hospitality & Tourism certificate program as it is a wonderful opportunity to study then work in the US (OPT). The university has partnerships with 5-star hotel chains and opportunities to interview with them. I am really excited to be studying in this program and having a lot of fun in San Francisco. If you are looking to study practical topics and gain real experience, San Francisco State University is the place for you!”
