Hotel Brand Management


Hi All,

I have been searching for this topic on various forums to see if anyone has information
about Hotel - Brand Management. But I have not found anything substantial.

Basically, what I am interested in doing after my MBA in Marketing (specialisation in Brand Management)
is to work for a Hotel Chain (viz. IHG) and work in their Brand Management dept.

I wonder if there are any schools which might specifically be into catering for such a requirement.
More importantly, I would want to know if Hotel Chains visit such schools.

I know my best bet to enter such a field would be to find schools with good Marketing Courses in Brand
Management and then just pursue the companies of my choice, but has anyone come across such a
requirement and if any of you could point me in the right direction, it will be of great help.

Thanks folks.

Hi Duncan,

Thanx for the post but I was mainly interested in US based schools.

By the way, I just searched LinkedIn for MBAs in the US hospitality industry and saw this list of the schools most commonly attended by them:
* University of Phoenix (258)
* Cornell University (181)
* Johnson and Wales University (166)
* Rollins College - Crummer Graduate School of Business (81)
* Penn State University (75)
* Florida International University (74)
* University of Central Florida (73)
* Nova Southeastern University (70)
* Northwestern University - Kellogg School of Management (68)
* Michigan State University (63)
* University of Nevada-Las Vegas (63)

They will be good schools to focus on, perhaps. I especially like Johnson & Wales (http://www.jwu.edu/content.aspx?id=56275#fbid=v5jNWwE1-Zb)

I'd definitely reinforce Duncan's response.

Note that besides offering a general MBA, Cornell also has a master's in management in hospitality that you should look into. This program leverages a lot of their rock solid MBA curriculum into a more specialized focus.

Other programs to research are George Washington's and Michigan State. These both have excellent hospitality specializations.

A good place to start is an article right here on this site:
