Prof. Robert J. Kwortnik, PhD
School of Hotel Administration- Cornell University


The faculty at Temple are outstanding mentors for emerging scholars who aspire to teach at top-ranked institutions and to do high-level research. I entered the academic job market confident that I was well trained to tackle challenging research questions and to publish in the best journals— to succeed as a scholar. But perhaps more importantly, I knew that my professors at Temple “had my back” and would continue to guide, teach, push, and support me as my career progressed, and this has proven to be true. A Temple Ph.D. is about more than the strong curriculum and learning support—it’s about relationships.
