From the Inside Flap

The world's leading school of hotel administration now offers a com-prehensive overview of the hospi-tality industry. Comprised of contributions from twenty-eight Cornell University faculty members, The Cornell School of Hotel Administration on Hospitality outlines all of the best practices and hospitality management strategies they teach to their students.

Cornell's book covers cutting edge thinking and practice within four key areas in the hospitality industry. The first section outlines your career path in hospitality. How do you break in? How do you develop yourself to become a leader? Learn the key skills, knowledge, and personality traits that will make this career a good fit for you. Section 2 explains how to attract the right customers, deliver the service they expect, and set the right price, all while managing employees to achieve your firm's goals.

Section 3 focuses on how to achieve success by owning businesses, owning real estate underlying the businesses, or both, with an emphasis on profitability and cash flow. The final section covers the requirements for success at the corporate office: choose the right strategy, manage your brand, coordinate information, control costs, and implement the right systems to achieve success at multiple locations simultaneously.

Cornell University's School Of Hotel Administration, the first collegiate program in hospitality management, was founded in 1922. Today, it is regarded as the world leader in its field.

5Great book!
By zzamba007
Cornell has written a very comprehensive reference which can be useful to all hospitality management and staff alike. I read it cover to cover and plan to share and dog-ear the pages extensively.
