Welcome to Hospitality & Tourism Management
The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) is a global leader in hospitality management education. It is among the best hospitality programs in the country. Core components include experiential, theoretical, and analytical study. Two peer-reviewed studies have ranked the undergraduate program at the top. The graduate programs have also been recognized – and recently both the M.S. and Ph.D. programs were ranked first in the nation in a longitudinal study of graduate hospitality education.
Our mission is to prepare managers and leaders for the challenges that lie ahead, and to identify solutions and tools to make better decisions. Endorsed by the Accreditation Commission for Programs in Hospitality Administration, HTM’s program combines sound research and real-world engagement, leading to highly sought after graduates throughout the industry.
HTM researchers have developed the Purdue HTM Wage Impact Calculator, an online calculator to assist owners and managers of limited service restaurants in determining the impact an increase in hourly pay has on profit income.
