I recently returned from two conferences in San Francisco where I interviewed more than fifty candidates for two faculty openings we have in the School of Hotel Administration (SHA). In hiring faculty members, the SHA is often in competition with business schools. In talking to the faculty candidates, I had the chance to tell them about the characteristics of the SHA that distinguish it from business schools. For the record, my master’s and doctoral training were in business schools, and I spent eight years as a faculty member in a business school before joining the SHA, so my comments are based on personal observations.
