The program provides qualifying universities access to IDeaS' premium repository of revenue management tools and resources, including the IDeaS V5i products, and one-on-one mentoring with IDeaS executives during the academic calendar year.
"The IDeaS Academic Partner program and specifically the use of IDeaS V5i products within our courses allow students to connect our theoretical models to systems in practice," Chris Anderson, Professor, Cornell University, explains. "We are using the system in numerous settings with undergraduate students, graduate students and executives."
"Our partnership with IDeaS through the Academic Partner Program provides a challenging and innovative way for combining theory and hands-on practice in Revenue Management," said Horatiu Tudori, Revenue Management Professor, Head of Academic Sector for Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne.
