With 60 full-time teaching faculty, the Cornell Hotel School has the world's largest group of scholars focused on hospitality service-oriented management.

Hotel School History and Programs
Founded in 1922 at the request of several of the nation's leading hotel magnates and the American Hotel Association, the school has an intriguing history. The founders wanted to create a first-rate academic institution providing a field of study for the "science" of running hotels and restaurants. In 1973, the first master's degree program for the industry, an M.B.A. with hospitality focus, was offered at the Cornell Hotel School. This program was created to address the growing complexity for senior managers in the industry that could best be supported by a graduate degree program as well as expanded executive courses taught by faculty with the credentials appropriate for graduate and executive education. Many graduates of the Hotel School have gone on to become entrepreneurs who have created new companies and new services for the hospitality industry.

The Cornell Hotel School is delivering the education and interacting with industry leaders to ensure that the fast-paced and ever-changing opportunities of the hospitality industry are led by first-rate management experts who have a passion for the industry and a strategic understanding of how to manage their companies and provide service to the people.
