The Cornell University School of Hotel Administration offers extensive custom programs in hospitality management, expressly tailored to company needs. Many companies see an advantage in having a private program so that company-specific information, objectives, terminology, and methods can be precisely addressed. Cornell has delivered such programs both in its world-class conference facilities in Ithaca, NY, and on Roosevelt Island in NYC, and at clients’ facilities all around the world. Programs can be designed around existing curriculum or custom developed in a collaborative process.


The world-renowned members of the Cornell faculty have spent their professional lives predicting, formulating, and testing effective strategies for management. They are full-time professional educators who are also hospitality industry experts. Unlike corporate executives who may teach two or three seminars each year, Cornell faculty members teach to dozens of audiences each year, every year. They know how to present theory and relate it to practice. They know how to generate learning experiences that enable knowledge retention and enhance business performance.


Program costs vary depending on the length and location of program, the amount of customized content developed, the number of program participants, and other conditions that are unique to each project. Please contact the Office of Executive Education for a program-specific proposal.
