Default Hello From Canada

Hello, and I am looking into a future business. In a few short years, I'm off to a Business Course in college.

I then plan to invest in buying a hotel in Florida which I will then run.

Anyways, glad to be here!

Hi Curt, welcome aboard

That sounds like a great goal, I'm sitting on my computer down in florida right now and it is sunny and 75 degrees. Keep in mind when running a hotel, that many of the skills you need are related to marketing and business operations so make sure you learn how to run a "business" and don't focus just on "hotel" specific courses. imo, if you can run a successful hotel you can run most businesses. Good luck, and let us know anyway we can help you along the way. We're always here.

Marketing

You will get all of the business courses, and if you run your own hotel you will need to be able to put heads in beds. Plus if you decide to do something outside of hotels, you have a degree that can be useful to a variety of positions.

I might have gotten confused...I think the list I did above for the courses is actually all the things learned in the Business Course.

That makes sense. For example I have a bachelors in Business Administration with an Emphasis in Marketing. you typically get a general business degree, and then select a particular emphasis. Those who want to become CPAs select an emphasis in accounting for example. But that doesn't mean you won't take accounting classes if your emphasis is in marketing, just not as many.

Are there any things to add that could potentially make more money? Weekend Package? Cruise Package?
