What will you study on the HOSPA Asset Management Programme?
The course is studied in 3 levels; each of which takes 5 months to complete.
Level 1: Introduction to Asset Management (available October 2020)
Level 2: Operational Asset Management (available March 2021)
Level 3: Strategic Asset Management (available March 2021)
The first level is a general introduction, which seeks to explain the nature of the work and the skills required. Many employees meet with a hotel’s asset manager, but they are not always fully aware of their role. This introductory module sets out the areas an Asset Manager focuses on, the tools they use and the environment in which they work.
The second level is for those wanting to commence a career in Asset Management, or perhaps develop and further their already acquired hospitality skills. One of the advantages of Asset Management is that it recognises the benefits of skills in Revenue Management, Finance, Human Resources, Operations and Sales and Marketing, and others, and supplements these with additional knowledge and training to gain a 360 degree view of an operation. This level introduces more detail on how hospitality businesses are run, the decisions to be made on acquisition, some legal aspects of the job, such as understanding franchise and management agreements, and business monitoring.
The third area is the level dealing with strategy. Creating strategies, leading contract negotiations, involvement in financing, creating asset management plans and participating in buying and selling properties all form part of this level.
