The teams, comprised of three to five students and one instructor, will compete in a Simulation Challenge in two separate competitive sets (with one hotel operated by each school).  Each week they will make strategic decisions to improve the position of their hotels in their competitive set, with a focus on Market Performance, Financials, Guest Satisfaction, and Associate Engagement.  At the end of the four-week competition, the top hotels from each competitive set will be compared side-by-side using a variety of performance metrics and the winning team will be named.

As they compete, the students will also be achieving their Certificate in Hospitality Business Acumen via on-line learning modules and a knowledge exam, supplemented by weekly web conferences.

I have every confidence that it be an amazing competition and, following two comprehensive orientation sessions over the past two weeks, the teams are excited to get started!

Best of luck to all!!
