Essential Information

Many schools offer casino management degree programs and certificates online at the undergraduate level. Students can find options at community colleges, four-year universities and private distance learning schools. While coursework can generally be completed entirely online, students are generally required to complete an internship prior to graduation. These programs are designed to prepare students for careers as hotel managers, casino managers, event managers and poker dealers. Examples of online programs that may prepare students for this type of work include:

  • Certificate in Casino Management
  • Associate of Applied Science in Casino Management
  • Bachelor of Science in Hospitality and Casino Management
  • Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Hospitality and Tourism Management.

Program Options

Some programs in this field can be completed totally online, but students may be required - or at least offered the chance - to complete an internship to gain real-world experience. Programs that teach students how to play casino games could hold training sessions at the school or one of its extension centers as well. In such cases, students can still complete most or all of the theory courses online by accessing lectures and assignments through their school's virtual classroom. These usually feature ways, such as discussion boards or chat rooms, for classmates and instructors to interact.

Certificate Programs

Students gain knowledge in casino culture and law. Earning an online certificate allows them to master, then market casino games, such as roulette, craps and various games of poker. Some online programs in casino management allow one to earn a certificate in as little as a few weeks. For-credit online certificates can sometimes be included in a degree program while others offered through schools' continuing education departments might not award college credit. Online coursework may include the following:

  • Casino Design
  • Hospitality and Casino Accounting
  • Casino Marketing
  • Casino Staffing
  • Table Game Management

Associate's Degree Programs

An online associate's degree program in casino management offers classes that are taken in video or lecture formats. Students connect with professors and other students in a virtual environment to learn the various aspects of casino management, ranging from casino marketing and how to detect cheating to food services and menu planning. These programs also contain general education coursework in areas like English, math, science and history. Distance learners can expect to study the following subjects:

  • Gaming and Social Policy
  • Casino Products, Protection and Probability
  • Hospitality Law
  • Club Management
  • Casino Surveillance and Security

Bachelor's Degree Programs

At the bachelor's degree level, students tend to pursue a hospitality management online degree with a concentration in casino management. In some cases, hospitality management programs will simply include courses in casino management, as opposed to a specialization. Like associate's degree programs, those at this level also contain general education classes.

Through distance-learning coursework, students learn to manage, market and design casinos. The program usually includes an internship, giving students the opportunity to learn firsthand various techniques in the field, such as how to attract customers and identify methods of cheating. Typical online courses include the following:

  • Resort and Casino Industry
  • Current Trends in Casinos
  • Corporate Finance
  • Club Management
  • Casino Marketing
  • Budgeting

Aspiring casino managers can get an introduction to the hospitality industry through an online undergraduate certificate or degree program. In addition to taking online classes, students may participate in hands-on internships so that they can get the feel for the business environment in a real casino.
