Welcome | American Hotel Academy

“…Our mission calls us to encourage close ties with the industry, to promote dedication to service, to instill leadership, to inspire passion for creativity and entrepreneurship and to celebrate multicultural diversity…”


American Hotel Academy was founded in 2007 in Brasov, Romania as the first international hotel management school in the country with the main purpose of offering education & training in hospitality to Romanian students interested in pursuing global careers.

We believe in blending professionally – oriented education with applied skills training within an international setting in a variety of hospitality management disciplines that are not available at many traditional higher education institutions. This is the foundation on which the school has been built and this is how we help our students to achieve their career goals.

Our students currently learn from 30 international faculty, all seasoned professionals or master and PhD educated teachers. Classes and practical sessions take place in the school, downtown Brasov, a beautiful mid – sized city located in the heart of the country, while industry placements are offered mainly in the United States and Europe.

After successfully implementing the first international higher education program in hospitality management in Romania, the school is now enhancing its international focus by opening its doors to international students and by setting up a second study center in New York.

The final result we are aiming for is a global group of alumni who will become the future corporate leaders and entrepreneurs who will further expand and reinvent the hospitality industry.

Whether you are a future student exploring your options for an exciting professional career, or an employer looking for future talents, I invite you to find out more about our school and I look forward to welcome you in either of our two study centers in Brasov, Romania or in New York, United States.
