CEOWORLD Magazine named the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business eighth in the world for best hospitality and hotel management schools. The rankings were released Friday, March 6 as part of the magazine’s global survey.

The magazine surveyed 18,000 hospitality recruiters and senior managers of luxury hotels around the world. The editors limited the rankings to, at most, 50 institutes offering best courses in hospitality and hotel management. There are both private and government approved hotel management institutes throughout the globe.

“This is a wonderful honor,” says the School’s Director David Corsun. “What’s especially heartening about this recognition is that it was based on the program, and the alumni it produced, prior to our recent curriculum changes. We are confident that these changes will guarantee that the Knoebel School’s trajectory will continue to be upward. This recognition is a great testimony that we are graduating students who excel and have an excellent reputation in the industry.”

The Fritz Knoebel School is in the company of the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University, William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration at athe University of Nevada at Las Vegas, and Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland.

Established in 1946, the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management prepares students for senior management positions in the fast-changing and competitive hospitality industry. Knoebel graduates have the in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience to be successful in all aspects of the hospitality and tourism business.

Knoebel is one of the few hospitality schools in the world housed within a business college and has received the highest mark of distinction in business education: accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
