JWU Hospitality Programs Ranked in Top 10 in the World

The Johnson & Wales (JWU) College of Hospitality Management has been recognized as #7 "Best Hospitality and Hotel Management School in the World" in 2020 by CEOWORLD magazine.

“We are delighted to be ranked in the top 10 hospitality and hotel management schools globally,” said Rummy Pandit, LP.D, dean of the College of Hospitality Management. “Our program provides students a breadth of academic and hands-on experience ensuring they are ready to take on any challenge within the hospitality arena, made possible with faculty that have significant academic preparation and broad industry experience. Additionally, our industry relationships and partnerships further enhance our students’ learning and provide a multitude of career opportunities upon graduation.”

CEOWORLD sent the annual survey to 110,000 industry professionals including graduates, recruiters, and employers in 46 countries. The metrics were drawn from perceived global brands influence (20%), recruiters’ responses (20%), employers’ feedback (10%), job placement rate (10%), admission eligibility (10%), specialization (10%), and academic reputation (20%). Publically available sources and research, in addition to survey data, factored into the final score, as well.
