Hospitality Faculty

Mike HolovacsMichael “Mike” Holovacs is a Senior Adjunct Instructor, and has been with RCBC since 2013. He received his Master of Science in Hospitality Management from Drexel University in 2014. During his time at Drexel, he served as President of Eta Sigma Delta, the hospitality academic honor society. He also holds a Certification in Hotel Industry Analytics (CHIA).

Growing up the son of a travel agency owner, Holovacs’ passion for hospitality and tourism was sparked at a young age. He has been everything from a front desk agent to a director of operations. Holovacs is also a United States Air Force veteran of two overseas deployments and the domestic response to September 11.

Humor, candor, passion for the industry, and plenty of real-life stories from years spent in Atlantic City are mixed with lecture, discussion, video, and group activities to create a classroom environment diverse in both methods and reactions. Holovacs’ approach to teaching is “80 percent educator, 10 percent career counselor, and 10 percent standup comic.”
