Founded in 1922, Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration was the first collegiate program in hospitality management. Today it is regarded as the world leader in its field. The school's highly talented and motivated students learn from 60 full-time faculty members - all experts in their chosen disciplines, and all dedicated to teaching, research and service. Learning takes place in state-of-the-art classrooms, in the on campus Statler hotel, and in varied industry settings around the world.
The result: a supremely accomplished alumni group - corporate executives and entrepreneurs who advance the industry and share their wisdom and experience with our students and faculty. The Cornell School of Hotel Administration offers a combination of inspired classroom teaching and innovative practical experiences. As the only Ivy League business-management program to focus on hospitality, it actively prepares students to be leaders in a dynamic global industry.
The School of Hotel Administration is an independent academic college within Cornell University, giving it the ability to adjust its curriculum and services to keep pace with changes in the hospitality industry. The students reap the benefits of this flexible, intellectually-rich, and creative environment.
