Welcome to the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management! We’ve earned a reputation with Toronto’s premier restaurants, hotels and event planners as one of the best resources for highly skilled hospitality graduates.
Our industry partners offer field placements where you’ll work with people who may become your future employers. Many top industry performers are George Brown grads including Randy Morton, President and CEO of Bellagio in Las Vegas and Minaz Abji, EVP, Host Hotels and Resorts in Washington, DC.
How our students get ahead:
Best industry connections
The School is built around a very simple concept: Work with industry partners to determine exactly what skills they need now and in the future, and then give students the very best training in those high-demand skills.
Our graduates are in-demand:
"We always give George Brown graduates first priority when we're interviewing. They have the best practical training and the breadth of their knowledge helps them succeed at a wide range of jobs."
Cindy SimpsonSenior Vice President, Imago Restaurants Inc.
"...On my college recruitment travels with Delta Hotels, I have always questioned why Ontario did not allow colleges to marry both the practical and academic skill sets required by industry professionals. This approach has long been in place in the United States and has worked well. Delta Hotels... would be very interested in your graduates."
William J. Pallet, Senior Vice President, People and Quality, Delta Hotels
