In 1995, under the presidency of Dr. Emmanuel G. Cleto, three programs under the College of Arts and Sciences namely Agriculture, Social Work and Nutrition and Dietetics,were restructured into independent colleges to address the growing enrollment at the time. Mrs. Maridel V. Eslao was appointed Dean of the College of Nutrition and Dietetics in the same year.
The program Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics was offered until Academic Year 2001-2002.
With the changing times and demand for other viable courses, the program Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management was formally offered in Academic Year 2002-2003 and was named Collegeof Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management. Government recognition was granted by CHED in March 2005.
The program Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management was the first in the country to be accredited by the Association of Christian Schools and Universities Accrediting Agency in March 2009.
With the new leadership in the university, revisions were incorporated at the start of Academic Year 2009-2010 which affected the college organization and nomenclature. President Manuel G. Palomo initiated the merger of the Colleges of Business Administration and Accountancy (CBAA) and Hotel and Restaurant Management into the College of Management and Accountancy. Then President Palomo wanted to strengthen the university’s business course offerings and made the College of Management and Accountancy one of the flagship colleges of the university.
After the term of President Palomo, the merger of the two colleges was discontinued.
In 2011, two years after the preliminary survey of ACCSCU-AAI, the program Hotel and Restaurant Management was granted Level I accredited status. It was then granted Level III accredited status for five years by ACCSCU-AAI from 2013-2018.
In 2012, the college added a new program, the Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management, and changed its name to College of Hospitality and Tourism Management.
In 2018, the B.S. Hotel and Restaurant Management and B.S. Tourism Management programs were subjected to another accreditation by ACCSCU-AAI. The Hotel and Restaurant Management program was granted Level III re-accredited status from 2019-2023, and the Tourism Management program was granted Level I accredited status from 2019-2021.
