MPHM 520 - Mgrl Acct. & Fin: Hosp. Ops
Understanding the complex figures in business transactions is imperative for any leadership role in the hospitality industry. In this foundational and required course, students practice hospitality decision-making and value creation from a hospitality operations perspective. Starting with the basics of accounting and finance, the curriculum quickly accelerates to an advanced graduate level. Using historical accounting data, the content is designed to create critical-thinking leaders who can easily participate in a numerically-intense business conversation with executives and can make informed and logical decisions based on their evaluations.
In this course, students will demonstrate knowledge of generally accepted accounting principals, and evaluate business legal entities, citing reasons for their formation; evaluate income statements, balance sheets, cash flows, and learn how illustrate how managers and operators use these financial statements for decision-making and value-creation purposes. Expect sharpened analytical skills of basic cost concepts, cost-volume profit analysis, cost approaches to pricing, and ratio analysis, while developing advantageous skills in forecasting methodologies, capital and operations budgeting, and the internal audit process. Students will demonstrate formulating and using logic in decision-making, articulating those decisions, and defending them at an executive level. The course will utilize applied case studies throughout, and will require written exams, projects, and verbal presentations.
