  • Emerson School of Hospitality integrates rigorous academics with relevant career and technical skills, as well as workplace attitudes and behaviors.

    The programs include interactive learning activities, hands-on training, and real world experiences.

    In our unique Hospitality Program, students operate a Restaurant and Banquet Facility that serves the busy downtown Buffalo lunch crowd.  Banquets are frequently scheduled within the schools banquet and meeting rooms.

    Most importantly, Emerson’s students are well prepared to meet New York State’s Regents standards and future college challenges.
