Welcoming the School of Hospitality Leadership

9 Sep

As the new school year begins at DePaul, a brand-new school, the School of Hospitality Leadership, is welcoming its first students.DePaul student

How’s this for a goal: The school will help address the hospitality industry’s growing need for highly educated, diverse management at hotels, restaurants, convention and tourism ventures, spas and related leisure industries.

The School of Hospitality Leadership currently offers an undergraduate major in hospitality leadership, but it plans to introduce graduate degrees, continuing education initiatives and a hospitality research center.

And good news for job seekers: The hospitality industry is one of a handful of fields showing strong job growth in the current stagnant economy, according to a recent Labor Department report. From May to June, hospitality sector job openings jumped 13 percent nationally to 304,000.

The university’s College of Commerce received a $7.5 million gift last fall from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to establish the school.
