Welcome to the School of Hospitality Administration

Can you picture yourself interning at a posh hotel in Paris? Planning large fundraising events for a nonprofit organization? Helping a multinational company like Marriott or Hyatt finance, market, or choose locations for new resort properties? An education from Boston University's School of Hospitality Administration (SHA) can put these dreams within your reach sooner than you might think. By the time you graduate, you’ll have the skills and training to step into a hospitality management position in the world’s fastest-growing industry.

At SHA, you’ll be part of a vibrant, global community that's pushing the boundaries of hospitality and service. You’ll push your own boundaries here, too, with rigorous academics, extensive real-world work requirements, and enriching international experiences. Our distinguished faculty will challenge and inspire you in state-of-the-art classrooms, immersing you in the hospitality management industry from day one. At the same time, courses from BU’s top-ranked liberal arts curriculum will give you the well-rounded knowledge and communication skills so important in the uniquely people-oriented, multicultural field of hospitality management. See why our students dare to dream big—and why their starting salaries are higher than many of their peers'. We’d love to help you find your future here.
