Ranking based on survey of graduates, recruiters and employers

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. 25, as part of the magazine’s global survey.

The magazine surveyed 50,000 hospitality graduates, 25,000 recruiters and 35,000 employers around the world.

“This is a wonderful honor,” says the School’s Director David Corsun. “This recognition is a great testimony that we are graduating students who excel and have an excellent reputation in the industry.”

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.

The Fritz Knoebel School is in the top 10 along with Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland, William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University.
