New Chartres Lodging Group Capital Markets Lab opens
SHA celebrated the grand opening of the Chartres Lodging Group Capital Markets Lab on Nov. 8. Rob Kline '84, CEO and co-founder of Chartres Lodging Group, and Denise Kline provided a generous gift to fund this learning center where students will build greater literacy in financial and capital markets.
In the lab, students will get practical hands-on experience with databases that are used by industry professionals around the world—including databases from Real Capital Analytics, TREPP, CoStar, REIS, PKF Hospitality Horizons, STR Global, and SNL Securities. Knowledge of these databases will help provide rigorous real estate analysis in classes and in research projects and ensure that Cornell students are increasingly competitive in the real-estate job market.
