Professional Development Program

The Professional Development Program is a series of three day classes focused on higher learning in the hospitality industry.

Participants come from all over the world to take classes at such locations as Ithaca, New York (at the Cornell Campus); Brussels, Belgium; Singapore; and site visits in Las Vegas and New York City.

Generally participants in the program have previous experience in the hospitality industry and are returning to further their education to maximize their work efficiency.

The Professional Development is largely funded by the Anheuser-Busch Foundation.
