Congratulations to my student Kelleye Eller, M.P.S. on completion of her Master of Professional Studies degree in Global Hospitality Leadership at Georgetown University. Ms. Eller titled her graduate thesis Securing U.S. Hotels in the Age of Terrorism: The Hoteliers’ Perspective. In her capstone paper and executive summary and presentation, she thoroughly examines the challenges that domestic and international terrorism present to the hotel industry in the United States today, as well as potential industry responses to these challenges.
I was privileged to serve as Ms. Eller’s adviser for this project. I am helping her seek to publish her thesis as an article in a professional journal, but wanted to share her research here (with her permission) in the meantime.
