Cornell University's Johnson College of Business has partnered with Peking University’s Guanghua School of Management to launch a dual-degree hospitality MBA program.
In the new program, students can complete both an MBA, as well as a Master of Management Degree in Hospitality (MHH), in two years.
Aimed at executive professionals residing in China, the program will be taught jointly by faculty from Guanghua and Johnson's School of Hotel Administration. Students will get an overview of hospitality management and related topics, such as real estate, service operations, analytics and human resource management.
The program will be delivered on a part-time basis, with 70 percent of the time spent on the Guanghua campus, and 30 percent at Cornell, in New York.
This is an important time for hospitality professionals in China. “The rise of the digital economy and the ‘carbon neutral’ economy are quickly becoming an important engine for high-quality economic growth in China,” according to Liu Qiao, Guanghua dean.
The first intake of the Cornell-Guanghua MHH/MBA program will be in the fall of 2022. For more information, please see the MBA/MHH webpage on Cornell's School of Hotel Administration website.
