Leadership & Business, for experienced students

Five-day intensive program
October 11-15, 2021

This five-day intensive program helps hospitality professionals develop the skills they need to lead their teams effectively and manage their restaurants successfully.

Poor leadership and management cause many businesses to fail and drive many talented hospitality workers from our industry. By better preparing professionals to confront the challenges of managing a team and running a business, we believe we can make our workplaces more viable, equitable, and rewarding, and help shape the next generation of leaders.

Focusing on everything from group dynamics and team development to the foundations of accounting, this program gives students the knowledge and hands-on training they need to navigate common—but often difficult—situations like conflict resolution and financial trouble-shooting. It also helps them better understand their own leadership style and develop both the everyday practices and the longterm vision that a thriving business requires.
