Very #BUProud of Stephanie Banfield Bournemouth University final year hospitality student who was awarded the STR Share Data Center Certification in Hotel Industry Analytics with 98/100
Stephanie said “Earlier this semester I was offered the opportunity to gain an additional qualification in Revenue Management. The Certification in Hotel Industry Analytics (CHIA) is an internationally recognised qualification and the field itself is becoming increasingly important, although there are still relatively few people working in it. Those that do have qualifications in Revenue Management are often very attractive to employers.
Thanks also to the BU student discount available, I jumped at the opportunity under the guidance of Dr. Giampaolo Viglia. There was a lot to learn, but it was easy to balance with my university studies because it is all an extension on what I had learned before in modules for International Hospitality Management. I am proud to have completed the qualification within a few weeks and passed with 98%. I also hope that more students take the opportunity to take the course.”
Dr Giampaolo Viglia who is responsible for teaching revenue management at Bournemouth University Department of Tourism and Hospitality said: ” We are all incredibly proud for Stephanie. We teach all students revenue management in the Hospitality degrees but it is particular pleasing that some students choose to specialise in this cutting edge topic which will give them great employability potential. We wish Stephanie well in her new career starting soon”.
