Cornell Launches New Foodservice Programs

Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration (SHA) partnered with eCornell to launch four new online hospitality and foodservice certificate programs in Essentials of Hospitality Management, Managing People for Success, Restaurant Revenue Management, and Foodservice Management. These new programs join five existing hospitality certificates: Strategic Hospitality, Hospitality Marketing, Hotel Revenue Management, Hospitality Real Estate and Asset Management, and Financial Management, all authored by leading SHA faculty and representing the cornerstones of Cornell’s online hospitality curriculum.

The School of Hotel Administration’s programs are widely recognized as some of the world’s premiere business education programs for hospitality professionals.
The addition of new certificates and updated courses is in response to continued market demand for high-quality hospitality content that is relevant and based on the latest industry research. In keeping with the long-standing practices of SHA and eCornell to ensure quality and relevance for the ever-changing hospitality industry, many of the online courses that comprise each certificate program were also updated.

"We are excited about the additions, improvements, and changes made to our online educational offerings," says Tom Kline, executive director of executive education for the School of Hotel Administration. "Our efforts are aimed at providing Cornell-quality educational experiences for learners all over the world. These improvements are a great example of our commitment to helping individuals and businesses succeed."
