The IDeaS Cornell Revenue Management Scholarship, supported by IDeaS, offers hospitality professionals worldwide the opportunity to gain online revenue management certifications from Cornell University. This year's program includes 12 scholarships, and fall recipients receive paid registration to five eCornell courses leading to certificates in "Advanced Revenue Management: Pricing and Demand Strategies," taught by Dr. Chris Anderson, Associate Professor of Operations Management.
"In an environment where technology, media and customer interactions are continually evolving, this certification provides focused techniques and strategies for pricing, inventory control and demand manipulation," said scholarship winner Sujitch A P. "The scholarship is a great way to further my career development while also bringing increased value to my organization and the industry as a whole."
