We are hospitality.
A world leader in hospitality education, Hilton College is preparing the leaders of tomorrow. With our passionate students, accomplished faculty, experiential-learning opportunities second to none and industry connections 40 years in the making, there is no better place for students interested in pursuing careers in the global hospitality marketplace to study, learn and succeed. We are proud of our College—our students, alumni and faculty—and for good reason.
Hilton College's mission is to serve the hospitality industry through its cutting-edge programs, enhanced experiential-learning opportunities and purposeful research. We have a rich history of accomplishing these objectives, and our reputation speaks volumes about our success. We have strong leadership carrying us forward—our dean, Dr. John Bowen, is passionate about the College's mission and goals and is tireless in their pursuit.
The College also has a contemporary learning laboratory right here on campus—the upscale Hilton University of Houston, which gives our students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in guest service, hotel operations and banquet and restaurant service at a major, name-brand hotel.
We have deep institutional knowledge of the hospitality industry, as reflected by the expertise offered through our centers and institutes and the hospitality icons we recognize each year through the Hospitality Industry Hall of Honor. We continue to expand our programs and reach, and our students continue to impress, as you can see in our latest news.
Hilton College has much to offer our students and the industry. And like most things, we are far more than the sum of our parts. Even so, these "parts" are unique, exciting and valuable for those interested in the dynamic hospitality industry. Just step inside—through this website or pay us a visit—and see how special we really are.
