historical marker

Now celebrating our 80th decade, the School of Hospitality Management at Penn State is one of the nation’s longest-standing programs of its kind.

With origins integrating a range of disciplines from business to home economics, this world-class field of study offers an engaging curriculum, hands-on research, and top-tier facilities, including an on-site full-service restaurant and state-of-the-art laboratories.

Our ever-evolving scholarship examines all angles of business management within a hospitality context spanning a wide variety of settings — from large global hotel brands, restaurants and wineries, event and tourism venues,  corporate meetings and convention centers, franchises, start-ups and technology providers, and everything in between.
