ORLANDO, FLORIDA (UCF) – The Rosen College of Hospitality Management ranks among the top five hospitality and hotel management schools in the world, according to CEOWORLD Magazine.
Rosen College ranked No. 5 on the magazine’s list of the 50 best hospitality and hotel management schools for 2015.
The ranking was based on a global survey of 18,000 hospitality recruiters and senior managers of luxury hotels around the world.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the top hospitality programs worldwide,” said Dean Abraham Pizam.
“Our focus on innovation and partnership produces exceptional graduates who will be the hospitality industry’s next generation of leaders. The exciting part is we’re just getting started.”
Founded in 2004, Rosen College is the youngest hospitality school in the top five, which includes programs at Cornell University, University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Michigan State University and Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland.
With an enrollment of approximately 3,500 students, Rosen College offers six academic degrees, including the only bachelor’s degree in event management in the United States and the only doctoral program specifically in hospitality management in Florida.
