Hotel School History and
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.
