Course Focus

In most hotels, the physical ownership of the property is separated from the control and management of the hotel. Determining who manages the hotel on a day-to-day basis and whether or not the hotel should affiliate with a brand can make or break your property. Based on his many years of academic and real-world experience, Professor deRoos provides you with the tools and knowledge you need to navigate the options and make sound decisions for your hotel investment.

In this course, you will examine the most prevalent ownership structures in the industry and determine how these structures impact costs, benefits, and risk for both the owner and the hotel company. To evaluate decisions about affiliating with a brand, you will use an Excel-based tool to calculate the costs and benefits of converting an independent hotel to a franchise. Finally, you will examine the most commonly used control mechanism in the industry, the Hotel Management Agreement.
