The Rosen College earned the title of the fifth-best hospitality and hotel management schools in the world for 2015.

Eighteen thousand hospitality recruiters and senior managers of luxury hotels around the globe surveyed UCF as the host for the accolade, given by CEOWORLD Magazine.


Rosen Dean Abraham Pizam praised the college for its achievement and stated its message moving forward.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the top hospitality programs worldwide,” Pizam said in UCF Today. “Our focus on innovation and partnership produces exceptional graduates who will be the hospitality industry’s next generation of leaders. The exiting part is we’re just getting started.”

The Rosen College of Hospitality Management is duly located in one of world’s greatest tourism hotspots, near Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando, SeaWorld and the large remainder of the I-4 Corridor.

At 3,500 students and twelve years since the opening of the college, Rosen offers six academic degrees, the only bachelor’s degree in event management in the United States, according to UCF, as well as the only doctoral program with emphasis on hospitality management in Florida.
