Faculty teaching this course:

This course is an experiential learning based course founded on applying skills and knowledge building on the development concepts from HADM 2550 and management skills from HADM 4570/ HADM 6570 to conceptualize, research, explore, and document a complete hotel development project plan. Students will work in multi-disciplinary groups to establish a concept, formulate a full team, analyze and choose a site, describe and refine a hotel product, ascertain market feasibility, program the property, explore financing options, detail the design process, document a risk management plan, outline RFP's and procurements, develop and refine budgets and schedules, plan the building and construction phase, and create an operations turnover plan.
