The Hospitality Real Estate & Finance institute aims to promote research, education, and networking in hospitality real estate and finance. The institute encourages research on hospitality real estate as an investment and asset class that is both academically rigorous and of value for the profession. Findings are disseminated through academic publications, industry conferences and education outreach. We link theory to practice by developing courses and case studies in collaboration with industry experts. In addition to research, the Institute encourages and supports network initiatives such as the private equity conferences and the real estates & finance seminars. Through these events, the Institute facilitates exchanges between academics, students, alumni, and professionals.
