IDeaS doubles number of scholarships in 2012 to advance the field of revenue management in hospitality
The leading provider of pricing and revenue management software, services and consulting, IDeaS has been a long-time partner of The Cornell University School of Hotel Administration, the world's leading institution for hospitality management. For the past three years, IDeaS has offered six scholarships annually to qualified recipients, and winners have spanned the U.S., Europe and China.
This year's program will include 12 scholarships and offer hospitality professionals worldwide the opportunity to gain online revenue management certifications from Cornell University. Scholarship recipients will receive paid registration to five eCornell courses, leading to certificates in either Hotel Revenue Management taught by Dr. Sheryl Kimes, Professor of Operations Management, Cornell School of Hotel Administration, or Advanced Revenue Management: Pricing and Demand Strategies taught by Dr. Chris Anderson, Associate Professor of Operations Management, Cornell School of Hotel Administration.
"Partnering with companies like IDeaS is critical to Cornell's success and that of our faculty because it allows us to interact very closely with the people who are at the forefront of pricing and revenue management within hospitality," said Dr. Steve Carvell, Associate Professor and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, The Cornell University School of Hotel Administration. "IDeaS' expertise will help us promote more sophisticated revenue management practices, and the synergies that have come out of the partnership, such as the expanded scholarship program, are already evident."
