EuroCHRIE Challenge 2017 has begun!

The 3rd Annual EuroCHRIE University Challenge has officially started with a total of six schools involved.

2016 REPORT: 2nd Annual EuroCHRIE University Challenge Comes to a Spectacular Finish!

We are pleased to welcome back teams from three schools who have participated previously: The Budapest Business School (Hungary), Stenden University (South Africa), and the University of South Carolina (USA) and teams from three schools new to the Challenge: Stenden University (The Netherlands), Dublin Institute of Technology (Ireland), and The University of Houston (USA).

The teams, comprised of four students and one instructor, will compete in the Simulation Challenge in a competitive set of six (with one hotel operated by each school). Each week they will make strategic decisions to improve the position of their hotels in the competitive set, with a focus on Market Share, Financials, Guest Satisfaction, and Associate Engagement. The winning team will be the team with the best overall balanced scorecard at the end of the four-week competition.

As they compete, the students will also be completing their certification in Hotel Business Acumen via on-line learning modules, supplemented by weekly web conferences.

It will undoubtedly be a terrific competition and, following two detailed orientation sessions, the teams are all excited to get underway! Best of luck to all!!
