Virtual Business - Hotel, our most realistic simulation yet, empowers students to take over the management of a full service hotel. Developed with the support of the J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation
, the online simulation draws on industry experts to model the inner workings of a hotel. Students learn the hourly and daily business decisions that go into running a high-end, successful hotel. This sim is ideal for teaching hospitality, marketing, management, finance, and introduction to business. .
Virtual Business - Hotel Replaces 100 Hours for Certification
The American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute has partnered with Knowledge Matters to provide industry-recognized certification. High school students can complete the Virtual Business - Hotel simulation to satisfy the 100-hour internship component
of the Certification in Hospitality Tourism and Management.
Within the sim, ten lessons are structured as the ultimate job rotation. Students gain experience in all the key roles in hospitality management. As students manage their hotel, guests post updates on simulated social media about their stays and then rate the hotel on a simulated travel website. Algebra and other math concepts are reinforced as students plan the capacity to keep their guests happy.
