If Massachusetts and federal lawmakers approve creation of an Indian-run casino in Middleborough, following local approval of the deal, the new facility may not have to look beyond the state border for trained workers and executives thanks to a program run by the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management.
Beginning in 2003, the department has offered a series of three courses focused on the gaming industry. The courses were originally developed with the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos located in Connecticut, and the campus maintains those connections.
Now with the possibility that a home-grown casino might be approved, faculty members are hoping they are well positioned to play a role in the expanding gaming industry here in Massachusetts. “The growth of casinos in Connecticut has demonstrated a strong interest in gaming throughout the New England region,” says HTM professor Chris Roberts. “Pulling some of that business back to Massachusetts will help create new jobs here and funnel needed tax revenues into state programs. UMass is ready to help future workers and leaders enter the gaming industry.”
The department has developed five undergraduate study tracks, including one on casino management where students learn about the history and development of gaming, marketing, how to design, run and protect casinos, and a course that examines the social, cultural, legal and psychological aspects of gaming.

Those three courses, “Casino Management,” “Casino Products, Protection and Probability,” and “Gaming and Social Policy,” are offered as online courses through Continuing & Professional Education.
Roberts says a Massachusetts-based casino could see benefits from the HTM program. He notes that UMass would be a useful source of education for potential employees, especially those aspiring into management positions. “New casinos create a demand for many new management positions,” Roberts says. “Our casino track prepares students for entry-level careers in leadership positions throughout the casino – including areas beyond the casino floor in the restaurants, hotels, entertainment and convention services or in support services such as human resources, marketing and finance.”

There is also the potential to build relationships between UMass and a state-based casino that could allow for development of internships for students, potential placement into management positions for graduating students, and collaborative work on research projects, he says.
