Hospitality management is really a location-based program. I would not recommend just any school anywhere for it. Instead, look for both good universities and a good location where you can  acquire the skills you learned. Because face it, even if you graduate with a good remark in a hospitality management course, if the working location is not  recognized and good-enough, it’s no use.

You need good hotels, tourism options, promotional firms etc., to make a hospitality management course work. Also, since it is a management course, the best job options in your line of work will be managerial or executive level. Therefore, working in a low active and outdated area can be close to nothing. I suggest you look for these colleges -


  1. University of Nevada - Las Vegas
  2. Pennsylvania State University
  3. Michigan State University
  4. EHL Hospitality Business School
  5. Glion Institute of Higher Education

Basically, the first three universities on the list are from the USA. I think I don’t need to explain how a place is for hospitality-related careers. Basically, the USA is the hub of leisure and tourism. Not even top European countries can compete with the USA on this subject matter. Plus a degree from a USA based university is more recognized, and you will be able to apply for better jobs after graduation.

The last two universities are from Switzerland. These are the universities that rank under top #5 hospitality and leisure universities worldwide. In general, most of the top universities for hospitality management are located in Switzerland. The county is very developed and has a  high standard of living. Maybe it’s not as diverse as the USA but it has the environment and the country itself that seems like a perfect destination for a hospitality management career.

However, just  because your focus was for colleges, I gave you these options.
