Based on survey of 110,000 hospitality recruiters, managers and graduates
CEOWorld Magazine named the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business ninth in the world for best hospitality and hotel management schools. The rankings were released Tuesday, Feb. 9 as part of the magazine’s global survey.
The magazine invited 110,000 individuals from 46 countries to participate in this year’s study. Fifty-thousand graduates, 25,000 recruiters and 35,000 employers completed surveys. The magazine staff analyzed more than 118 hotel management schools during the data collection process.
“This ranking is done independent of the hospitality programs themselves—we do not put forward an application or submit data,” says David Corsun, director of Fritz Knoebel. “It is based on the quality of our alumni, their work in the industry and the reputational capital we have built. We are honored by this recognition of our program’s quality.”
Fritz Knoebel is in the company of the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University, William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration at the 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. Fritz Knoebel graduates have the in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience to be successful in all aspects of the hospitality and tourism business.
Frtiz 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.
