The 51st General Managers Program (GMP) was held January 13-23, 2020, at the Cornell School of Hotel Administration. In the past 36 years, GMP has hosted more than 1,900 participants representing 120+ countries and is known as the hospitality industry’s elite career advancement program for full-service hotel general managers and their immediate successors. The 10-day program is comprised of sessions taught by SHA faculty: Cathy Enz (also the GMP Faculty Director), Dean Kate Walsh, Bruce Tracey, Steve Carvell, Rob Kwortnik, Pam Moulton, and Douglass Miller. The participants, from ten countries, experienced an intensive journey filled with real-world business applications, invaluable industry networking, and access to the world’s leading educators in hospitality management. For information on the upcoming GMP in May, our Professional Development Program (PDP) in June, and other continuing education opportunities, visit the EE website or contact Vicki Westfall.
