Introducing The World’s Most Adventurous Business School

Toward the end of the summer we will be rolling out two major marketing and communications initiatives that have been in development for more than a year. The first is a brand-new look and feel for the school. The second is the launch of our new SHA website. We can’t wait to share them with you.

Students attend the definitive industry conference

What’s more valuable to a student than learning from the best?

As one of the world’s top universities, Cornell enjoys the privilege of—and bears the responsibility for—being highly selective. But selectivity doesn’t entail cold disregard. Cornell and the School of Hotel Administration (SHA) view every student’s education as an active partnership, and devote significant effort to supporting each one every step of the way—from prospective applicant, to enrolled student, to graduated alumnus.
