General Methodology:

The Best Hospitality And Hotel Management Schools In The World, 2017 by the CEOWORLD magazine is based on six major indicators of quality and reputation. Overall Score (100%) is the sum of:

  1. Global influence (30%)

    3. Job placement rate (10%)
    4. Admission eligibility (10%)
    5. Specialization (10%)

To establish our list, we collected information and statistics from publicly available sources, university’s website, our research, and survey. It measures the quality of education, job placements of students, and the recruiters feedback, without relying on university data submissions. Students, industry professionals, and recruiters were asked to rate universities on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 100 “outstanding” or “don’t know.”

However, this is by no means a comprehensive list, while the universities above are the “CEOWORLD magazine’s Best Hospitality And Hotel Management Schools in the world for 2017,” there may be many other universities that offer excellent programs.
