This set of two, two-day immersion seminars is co-taught by industry leaders and Cornell faculty in New York City. Participants will participate in this during their New York residency in year one and two. Students will solve problems based on real-life scenarios and present their solutions to industry leaders and the Hotel School faculty members who accompany them. Students will have readings and case materials assigned from business periodicals, the hospitality industry press, and selected textbooks to read to prepare for the site visits and the coursework.
