Important Happenings!

Hospitality Asset Managers Association (HAMA)

Case Competition

The Hospitality Asset Managers Association is sponsoring an undergraduate student case competition for Michigan State University along with five other institutions to attend the spring 2021 HAMA conference. Each University will select one team entry to submit to the HAMA judges. The HAMA judges will select one winning entry from among the six schools and invite the winners for an all-expense paid trip to the conference. The top team from the remaining schools will be invited to the Spring HAMA conference with room and meals paid by HAMA. The top three submissions as scored by the HAMA judges will have an opportunity to present at the spring 2021 HAMA meeting (location TBD). This is a prestigious conference and students will have the opportunity to network with potential employers.
