KENT, Ohio — Going to Las Vegas is all part of a college course on casino management.

Kent State University added a “Casino Management and Gaming Operations” course after the passing of Ohio Issue 3 in 2009, which allows casinos to open in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo.

Casino Management and Gaming Operations is an introductory course for hospitality management majors.

The course provides students with an overview of the casino industry.

Students travel to Las Vegas for five days to see how the industry really works.

Students must be 21 years old to go on this educational trip to Las Vegas, which also includes some free time in the city.

The Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland is scheduled to open this spring and may provide some job opportunities for Kent State University graduates who have training in casino management.
