Abstract:

The paper explores the purpose of a hospitality management degree programme and how this might have impacted upon curriculum development and the student learning experience.

Design/methodology/approach – The paper attempts to draw together writing on some of the key issues surrounding operations based training including balancing preparedness for industry with providing a true higher education experience and the growing clamour for a more liberal approach to hospitality education.

Findings – The paper identifies and discusses two UK programmes that have made significant changes to their operations provision.

Originality/value – The paper further explores issues around the debate into the hospitality curriculum adding a valuable dimension concerning operational training.
