Cornell Hotel School or UVA - Mcintire

Checking what you guys thought of these two choices for the finance path, I am leaning towards UVA due to it having a broader curriculum.

These are very different paths! Would love to offer more guidance if you can provide some insight into your goals. Mcintire School an outstanding school with a degree that can be "taken" many places; Cornell will be more restrictive but if you are interested in the hospitality industry an excellent choice.

Cornell hotel school is basically just a business degree. They have plenty of alums who go into finance. However, I will say that most of the people I've met from Cornell hotel aren't too bright, and you're going to have to kill it in terms of GPA considering it's a joke major where you learn to fold napkins for a grade (actual class).

Cornell Hotel School sends a lot of kids to Finance and RE. Also a feeder school for Top MBAs.

Also if you ever plan to go internationally (you never know), Cornell is way way better brand than UVA.
