Hospitality education is a branch of the overall hospitality industry that is dedicated to providing the industry with well educated, adequately trained, and committed workforce. Universities missions are based on learning and exploration. Academics are involved in teaching, research, and service to the community. An academic department must operate within the university resources and within the global educational system, research, and economic environment. Tourism and hospitality related programs at universities face a dilemma, they must adhere to traditional academic competences to match other business-related bachelor degree programs while at the same time, must consider the industry needs as they prepare future employees and managers. To assure sustainability of hospitality management programs, several tactical and strategic decisions have been made. This symposium is an opportunity to share experiences, best practices, and discuss issues that face such academic programs, in an effort to benefit educators and administrators of hospitality management programs.

Deadline: 14 February 2022
