“The Strategic Hospitality Management program was very productive. The classes were dynamic and brought about important reflection on strategy theories and practices faced by hospitality enterprises. The high quality of the group and the expertise of Professor Enz provided a rich discussion and excellent knowledge base. I'm sure what I learned over the three days will significantly contribute to my professional activities and to my personal life.”

-- Ana Maria Biselli, Executive Director of Fohb, Fórum de Operadores Hoteleiros do Brasil, Senac Sãn Paulo

“We are very excited about the relationship between Senac Sãn Paulo and Cornell University. The Executives Program from Cornell University has been success in São Paulo, Brazil, and they are contributing very much to our industry development. We have had two programs this semester attended by senior executives from various chains and independent hotels, and the programs have exceeded their expectations, ”

-- Luciana Bon Duarte Fantini, Hospitality Development Manager, Senac Sãn Paulo

“Our workshop has been a good opportunity to reflect and debate on the leadership culture of our company and also to learn about our individual leadership styles. The good mix of lecture, individual work/reflection, group activities/discussions, and use of video made the two days a dynamic and useful learning experience. Professor Tracey's teaching method created a participative environment and pushed the participants to reflect and debate on certain subjects.”

-- Jérôme Bühlmann, Recruitment & Talent Manager, Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts

“I first began working with Cornell in 2004 when developing our Executive Management Programme aimed at owners, directors and senior management within Irish tourism. Seven years later we are still collaborating. As programme manager, this collaboration adds an extra, and much appreciated and talked of, dimension to our programme. Centred around their own jobs and organisations, participants hear and learn from the best. Cornell faculty and staff not only provide leading-edge thinking and help participants reassess base assumptions of everyday working life, they provide methodologies and ideas to apply in practice--often acting as invaluable mentors to me and to the participants beyond the remit of the programme. Collaborating with Cornell was one of the best decisions we ever made."

-- Mary Hall, Manager, Executive Management Development, Failte, Ireland

"I have special praise for the Cornell lecturers, who were genuinely interested in my business. They were willing to listen to our points to further their own experience, which really was amazing, and they were willing to freely share their own insider knowledge about the global industry with us."

-- John Brennan, Owner/Manager, Kenmare Park Hotel
