As an NYU School of Professional Studies Jonathan M. Tisch Center for Hospitality and Tourism student, you will have opportunities to take courses around the world that will provide a global perspective of the hospitality and tourism industries. To truly capture the global essence of these fields, Tisch Center students are encouraged to integrate global experiences into their programs of study.
The Tisch Center offers study away programs designed to introduce students to international, cultural, and business contexts that elevate their ability to lead in any setting, thereby increasing their value to employers. Study away courses incorporate theoretical knowledge and business application, providing students with the opportunity to analyze the latest trends and forces shaping these global industries.
For example, students on study trips to Berlin and Brazil gained firsthand experience with cultural heritage and special-interest tourism. In Brazil, students were challenged to create a business plan that would increase revenue by utilizing new hotel development and local sporting opportunities such as windsurfing, in order to enhance the appeal of a particular region as a destination for tourism.
Tisch undergraduate students may opt to study at one of NYU’s global academic centers.
Students consult closely with the NYU Office of Global Programs and Tisch Center faculty members and advisors to plan a global study experience that best matches their personal interests and program requirements. Because learning occurs at an NYU site, credit and financial aid transfer seamlessly.
