This course aims to provide students with a view of hotel operations from the perspective of a General Manager. The position of General Manager necessitates one to possess a macro and micro view of the hospitality industry in general and the hotel in particular. The person at the helm of a hotel operation constantly has to make judicious decisions based on a balance of theoretical and practical considerations.

In order that students have real world exposure to various aspects of general management, General Managers of hotels in Macao are invited to give guest lectures/seminars. The content list is not exhaustive and any suitable topics may be presented. Students are required to do a written synopsis of five presentations of their choice with an explanation as to their selection. The graded assignments and attendance make up the course grade.
