SUMMARY

A degree in Hospitality Management is not only a valuable choice, but ordinarily an essential first step for scholars trying to pursue a career as a planer, a hospitality business analyst, or a hospitality management consultant. In fact, nationally, hospitality management is fairly popular being the 41st most popular area of study. Last year, there were 11,515 hospitality management degrees conferred. In-state tuition for hospitality management at private colleges is, on average, 3.2 times more costly than their public fellows.

There are 255 universities which offer hospitality management. This number of universities is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other hospitality management undergrads, consider looking at schools in Florida which have the most undergrads admitted to hospitality management annually. More generally, the best region to study hospitality management is in the Southeast region with University of Central Florida, Florida International University, and Florida Gulf Coast University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the top conference to major in hospitality management is the American Athletic Conference with University of Central Florida, Temple University, and University of Houston representing the conference. From our list of the best colleges, our choice for the best university for hospitality management is Cornell University.

The best school is not necessarily the best school for every student. There are many more factors to weigh when choosing institution. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food could alter your inclinations on which college to attend. Here at Authority, we've evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which hospitality management college boasts the top college campus, the winner is New York University. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which college is home to the finest campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more so we can compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life here and our choice of the university with the best student life for hospitality management is Cornell University. Curious why? Keep reading to learn more about Authority's top choices. Many of our decisions might surprise you.

If cost is a major factor in your choice of where you attend university, you might consider avoiding George Washington University. George Washington University appears to be our most expensive school for hospitality management, at least regarding out of state attendance. We have an entire list of the most expensive schools that could put the price tag of George Washington University into perspective. For more context, you could be interested to know that hospitality management is the 210th most expensive major in America, with an average cost of $29,500. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for hospitality management in the country is District of Columbia demonstrated by a tuition of $54,453 at the main college in District of Columbia George Washington University. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region for hospitality management is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with George Washington University with a cost of $54,453, Cornell University with a cost of $56,550, and Drexel University with a cost of $52,146.

Our cheapest region for hospitality management is the Plains region which is represented by Southeast Missouri State University with a cost of $12,636, North Dakota State University-Main Campus with a cost of $12,413, and South Dakota State University with a cost of $11,172. More optimistically, the most affordable university for hospitality management is University of South Florida-Sarasota-Manatee. Our entire list of the most affordable schools can be found here.

In-state students can expect to pay around $9,800 for a degree in hospitality management. The cost swells by a lot to a median of $22,100 for an out-of-state public-school student. Our choice for the school constituting the best value for hospitality management: Cornell University. Here you will see our comprehensive list of the universities we see as being the best value in general. Do know, this idea is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for hospitality management students can cover a wide range, but two-years after completing the major students will typically earn around $48,100. While there can be a lot of variation in earnings potential; top earners can enjoy pay up to $92,100. Even right out of school, the minimum earning positions within the hospitality management field make $25,100, which could be worse. The highest earning grads for hospitality management have come from Cornell University and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of hospitality management stands on the higher end, ranking in the 72nd percentile of majors nationally. The college with the most composite diversity for hospitality management is New York University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities with the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Hospitality Management major sits only within the 82nd percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is even further below average in the 72nd percentile. White undergraduates compose the largest share, 54%, of students majoring in hospitality management. Additionally, 70% of scholars seeking a hospitality management degree are women.

The median ranking for hospitality management's professors is 4 stars, a rating that is actually the median score for every major; this is a fine. If you are looking for the most popular hospitality management professor in the nation, look no further than Judy Jernstedt from University of California-Davis. This may surprise you, but the best ranked hospitality management professors according to students are found at University of California-Davis. As we consider information beyond simply rankings we find that the school possessing the overall best professors for hospitality management is New York University. You can find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the top professors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for hospitality management is Cornell University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have a comprehensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, we do hope you understand that looking at the education process from context only informed by superlatives might create problems. We at Authority encourage you to explore our more focused pages on different colleges and peruse a few of our background 'blog posts' on beneficial things to think about as your school search develops.
