The School of Hospitality Business
Industry Partner of the Year

The School enjoys a close relationship with the hospitality industry. Hundreds of hospitality organizations from every segment of the industry actively recruit our students for internships and permanent positions. Over the years, many of these same organizations have forged close partnerships with The School, providing guest speakers, sponsorship of School activities, funding for elective courses, corporate products, tours, accommodations, and student scholarships.

To recognize industry partners that have demonstrated consistent support over many years and commitment at the highest levels, The School names an annual "Industry Partner of the Year" during CAREER EXPO. We are proud to thank them, and again acknowledge the special connection they represent between the hospitality industry and The School.
