Pillsbury Institute for Hospitality Entrepreneurship, School of Hotel Administration
Founded in 1922, Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration was the first collegiate program in hospitality management. Today it is regarded as the first and the best school of hospitality leadership—as well as the only one in the Ivy League. In addition, the School is considered a ‘teaching hotel’ through the integration of courses at the world-renowned Statler Hotel as well as a provider of career-related job experience for students. In 2006, the Pillsbury Institute for Hospitality Entrepreneurship was established to support the academic entrepreneurial curriculum of the School of Hotel Administration. There are three core facets to the foundation of the Institute’s operations: education, experience, and engagement. Our course offerings link the academic to the practical and we provide opportunities for experiential learning and engagement with entrepreneurs at all stages of ideation.
