HMAs and Franchise Contracts

The complexity of hotel operations has led to the large-scale adoption of hotel management agreements (HMAs) to control day-to-day operations and franchises which provide a valuable brand image that fosters traveler demand. These service providers greatly influence the revenue, profitability, and value of hotel assets, and therefore deserve a dedicated course of study. This class will explore HMAs and franchises from a variety of angles such as reviewing existing agreements, evaluating the economics of changing management or franchise for a hotel, and conducting mock contract negotiations.
