International Hotel Development
Course Project: Expatriate Manager Deployment System
Project Purpose: For your project, you will develop an information seminar for hoteliers based in your home country taking a multi-year expatriate management position in a country of your choice.
Project Parameters: This is an individual assignment. Your project will consist of a professionally written paper that could be used as a presenter’s manual and a presentation that would be suitable as an information session/job fair for managers interested in applying for the position.
Project Sections: Your project will include the following sections:
Section 1: Introduction (anticipated length, 2 – 3 pages)
Give a brief description of the hotel in which your home country manager would be working. This hotel must be an independent property or part of a local/country/regional chain (no huge multi-nationals such as Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt or IHG). Smaller chains may be OK (please check with your professor if you have questions). Please include the name (and brand, if applicable), the location, the size, the amenities, the customers and anything else about the company or property you think someone unfamiliar with it should know. This should be an actual property located within the country you have chosen. The city, property type, etc, are at your discretion.
Section 2: Job Description and Employee Assessment Criteria (anticipated length, 3 – 4 pages)
Include a job description for the position. This should be based on an actual management job description and adapted as necessary for the property and location described in the introduction. Explain the personal and professional qualifications an ideal candidate from the US should have. Describe the compensation and benefits package the manager taking the position will receive.
Section 3: Country Overview (anticipated length, 5-6 pages)
Provide a very brief history of the country. Also provide a general profile to include: language(s), general cultural values, size of country, government, currency and exchange rate, climate, national holidays, food.
