A Message from the ISHTM Director

“The mission of the International School of Hospitality and Tourism Management is to deliver exceptional quality in curricula, and to produce world-class graduates who possess integrity and wisdom in preparation for leadership careers among culturally and commercially diverse organizations in the international hospitality and tourism industry.”

Welcome to our International School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at Fairleigh Dickinson University. For 74 years, we have had the opportunity of educating students at the undergraduate and graduate levels to become industry professionals with exciting careers in the hotel, restaurant and tourism industries. We believe in a very personalized approach to education. Our faculty meet with each student continuously to review his or her professional, academic, and personal development. Our School maintains an average class size of 16, so students feel like a member of our "unique hospitality family." Each student also has the opportunity to participate in numerous extra curricular and student groups such as the Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management Society, which is one of the largest and most dynamic organizations in the University.

Located in the foremost hospitality center in the United States, each year, we receive over 700 intern and career track job opportunities for our students. We are privileged to possess an outstanding teaching faculty and facilities. This combination of location, faculty, and facilities has drawn students from over 30 different countries to learn about hospitality at Fairleigh Dickinson University. In keeping with the University's global mission, our students are provided with an array of educational opportunities to study at other universities internationally. Since its founding, the School has produced over 3,300 graduates in management positions in the hospitality industry.
