With a fixed capacity, a highly disposable product and high fixed costs, hotels are a natural candidate for the application of revenue management. Originally developed by the airlines in the 1970s, these analytics-based techniques help predict consumer behavior at the hotel’s market level so that the hotel can sell each room each night at the optimum price.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE FUNDAMENTALS OF REVENUE MANAGEMENT: THE CORNERSTONE OF REVENUE STRATEGY
very useful and rich with it content , the complimentary reading is awesome and indeed needed the final exam is a bit hard , i do recommend it for people who are seeking knowledge in RM
I value specifically the repetition of concepts across videos and readings - it meant it really solidified the learning and knowledge so that I now can confidently apply it.
This is a good course for someone (like myself) to take if they do not have a revenue management background. I wish I could've taken this when I first got here in January!
I would recommend that people take this series of courses, I definitely learned quite a bit from it, even though I have worked in the tourism industry for 20 plus years.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?
Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:
- The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
- The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
