WELCOME

The Rosen College of Hospitality Management is widely considered the top hospitality college in the United States. With a prime location in America’s most popular tourism destination, close proximity to major employers and a beautiful, resort-like campus, it’s no surprise that the college has been ranked in the top five hospitality management programs in the world by CEOWORLD Magazine. However, it’s what students accomplish while they’re here that truly makes Rosen College a special place to learn and teach.

We believe in the principles of leadership, professionalism and service — and these ideals are reflected in everything we do. It’s not only our mission, but also our responsibility to instill this philosophy in the future leaders of the hospitality and tourism industry as we seek continued growth and excellence in our field. We invest in students and their limitless potential. Our 159,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility is the largest ever built for hospitality management education. And we’re constantly creating innovative ways to enhance our students’ experience, such as new programs in Entertainment Management and Professional Tennis Management, as well as the Hospitality Information Technology Lab that we are building in partnership with the Hotel Technology Next Generation and Hospitality Finance and Technology Professionals associations. Our diverse faculty members, representing more than 17 countries, are renowned for their research, teaching skills and professional experience. In fact, many have held key executive roles in restaurants, hotels, theme parks and attractions, planned major conventions and events, and led numerous professional organizations. They are both knowledgeable in theory and experts in practice, which inspires powerful lessons in the classroom. We’re honored to help prepare the next generation of hospitality leaders who choose to start their journey here. A world of possibilities awaits our graduates beyond the gates of Rosen College. Sincerely,

Abraham Pizam, Dean

LIFE IS GOOD HERE Living in America’s most popular tourist destination has its perks, but there’s a lot more to Orlando than theme parks and thrill rides (although those are awesome). All within a short distance from the Rosen College campus, you can dine at thousands of restaurants that feature cuisines from across the globe, let out a scream on roller coasters, sing along at concerts or cheer on your favorite teams.

Orlando’s extensive tourism, hospitality and recreation venues make the city and UCF ideal for teaching and learning experiences.” — Xiaoxiao Fu, Assistant Professor

From our dynamic downtown to our eclectic neighborhoods and wide-open natural preserves, Central Florida offers more reasons to explore than you can imagine. And considering the 236 days of that special kind of sunshine that can only be found here, it’s no surprise that 60 percent of UCF alumni choose to settle in the region after graduation.

GET INVOLVED

While industry experience is a crucial element to hospitality education, students are encouraged to get involved in clubs and associations and interact with their peers. The Rosen Life program provides social, educational and networking opportunities just for Rosen students.
