Hospitality and Real Estate (HRE)

The Hospitality and Real Estate Programme is positioned as a business programme with two industry-oriented streams – hospitality and real estate. The hospitality industry, covering a wide range of businesses (such as hotels, travel & tourism, restaurants, theme parks, cruise, airlines, clubs, recreational facilities, convention & exhibition, to name just a few), and the real estate industry are closely connected as both industries emphasize the asset element as well as the service element. To capture this industry feature, the real estate stream focuses on planning, developing, and investing in the “assets” (e.g., buildings), the hospitality stream focuses on the “service” element – how to improve service quality, ensure customer satisfaction, and increase organizational performance. The Programme aims to develop industry leaders who understand the hospitality and real estate businesses from both the managers’ and the owners’/investors’ perspectives. Our education philosophy is to integrate theory and practice. Students can apply the knowledge and skills they have learned in classrooms to analyse and solve real-world problems encountered in summer internships and in various experiential learning activities. Our teaching hotel -- Hyatt Regency Shatin, demonstration kitchen, wine laboratory and student-managed restaurants provide the ideal learning environment for theory-practice integration. To enhance students’ global perspective, the Programme also arranges extensive student exchange opportunities. In the past, our students have taken part in exchange programmes at such leading business schools as the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and Business School at the University of Michigan. Our students have also attended a number of leading hotel schools, including the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University and School of Hospitality Management at Pennsylvania State University.
