History and Mission
Founded in 1995, the NYU School of Professional Studies Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality was established in response to the growing need for hospitality and tourism undergraduate and graduate education.
Hospitality and tourism are major global economic sectors, and the Tisch Center serves these growing and evolving industries by offering relevant, cutting-edge curricula that attracts bright, motivated students who seek to become leaders in their fields.
Through our undergraduate degrees in hotel and tourism management; our graduate degrees in hospitality industry studies and tourism management, a plethora of career advancement courses and diploma programs, and our world-renowned conference, we provide students with the tools to enable them to manage change, to communicate, to thrive in complex work environments, and to advance the businesses of hospitality and tourism. At the Tisch Center, the City is our laboratory, the industry is our faculty, and our students are the future of the profession.
