I learned a lot from this course. I am also disappointed that there was an error on the website when I tried to pay for my certificate and reported to fix it but not sure what happened. People who are working in hospitality business must avail of free courses like these. It sure will add knowledge and development to be on the edge. Thanks Cornell for such an amazing course and thanks as well to the professors who shared their knowledge :)

Exactly what is expected of a student to become a pro in the field of hospitality and making sure he/she uses the right tools by being innovative to march with the current trend in the industry, and also equip you with the requisite skills to manage the human resource division in the industry by working with the right people at the right time and at the right place,
