Vail Centre, Cornell partner on hospitality industry certificate course
VAIL — The Vail Centre has announced its second 2017 certificate course from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration. “Financial Management: Operational Decision Making” will take place Oct. 15 to 18 in Vail.
“Understanding the day-to-day financial management of a hospitality organization is key to advancement in today’s competitive environment,” said Ross Iverson, CEO of the Vail Centre. “Whether or not you are a financial manager, success as a hospitality professional is knowing how to budget and maximize operational efficiencies. This course provides these sought-after tools of management.”
The course is geared toward hospitality professionals who do not oversee financial management on a day-to-day basis, but are looking to advance their careers with greater knowledge of financial tools. Emphasis will be on communicating and interpreting financial data from a general manager perspective. The format includes lectures, case studies, and problem sets, delivered by an award-winning Cornell professor, Michael Flannery.
The Vail Centre’s May course from Cornell, “Essential Skill in Leadership for Hospitality,” earned high marks from participants.
“I learned about ways to innovate that will create positive change for both the customers and the employees,” Nick Rose of the Sitzmark Lodge said.
