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.

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&nbspin 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).
