One of the most respected hospitality programs in the nation.

Established in 1946, the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management (Knoebel) at the Daniels College of Business 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. You’ll graduate from Knoebel with a solid business education that other hospitality schools can’t match. Knoebel’s facilities are also tough to beat; our state-of-the-art building serves as a hands-on laboratory boasting an 2,800 square-foot production kitchen, a beverage management center fashioned after a Tuscan wine cellar, a front-desk operations center and a 170-person dining hall.

Knoebel achieves 100 percent career placement for students who actively seek employment thanks to our extensive career development activities, industry ties and the many opportunities you’ll have to build a professional network.
