Introducing The World's Most Adventurous Business School

Toward the end of the summer we will be rolling out two major marketing and communications initiatives that have been in development for more than a year. The first is a brand-new look and feel for the school. The second is the launch of our new SHA website. We can't wait to share them with you.

Our new brand identity reflects our positioning not only as a world-class business school grounded in the hospitality industry, but as The World's Most Adventurous Business School. Like hospitality itself, our alumni and students are everywhere in the world, but being adventurous means more than being everywhere. Read More
SHA honors hospitality industry leaders

At the seventh annual Cornell Hospitality Icon and Innovator Awards gala June 2 in New York City, 700 people saluted Barry S. Sternlicht and Damian J. Mogavero. The awards, given by the School of Hotel Administration (SHA), recognize leaders in the hospitality industry.

"The Cornell Hospitality Icon & Innovator Awards is a celebration of leaders in hospitality, business, and philanthropy, and—equally as important—it is a fundraiser for SHA scholarships. This year we had the opportunity to honor two visionaries while raising support for future generations of industry pioneers," said Michael D. Johnson, the Bradley H. Stone Dean and E. M. Statler Professor at SHA.

Cornell Giving Day sees big success for SHA

Much of what SHA does is made possible by the generosity of our global network of alumni and friends. That generosity was on full display this past March 25, the first-ever Cornell Giving Day—framed as a friendly fundraising competition among university divisions—when SHA came in third out of 22 colleges, schools, and other units at Cornell in overall funds raised.

Over the course of that one day, the school received gifts totaling over $1.13 million, or 16.2% of the almost-$7 million raised university-wide. We’ve put together an infographic that breaks down the totals and tells the story behind the numbers.
