Abstract

Undergraduate hospitality management programs throughout the United States take on a variety of forms based upon university structure, curriculum, location, and specialization. Hospitality programs located outside of AACSB accreditation are very different from those in AACSB schools in curriculum, extra-curricular activities and accreditation. Data collected for the 2009-10 academic year show the similarities in curriculum, extra-curricular activities and accreditation in the leading programs outside of AACSB requirements. Established hospitality programs that are not constrained by AACSB requirements will now have a benchmark for comparing their program and colleges that are starting a hospitality program will have a starting point for their program development.

An Analysis of Leading Hospitality Programs Located Outside of the College of Business

Undergraduate hospitality management programs throughout the United States take on a variety of forms based upon university structure, curriculum, location, and specialization. Hospitality programs located outside of AACSB accreditation are very different from those in AACSB schools in curriculum, extra-curricular activities and accreditation. Data collected for the 2009-10 academic year show the similarities in curriculum, extra-curricular activities and accreditation in the leading programs outside of AACSB requirements. Established hospitality programs that are not constrained by AACSB requirements will now have a benchmark for comparing their program and colleges that are starting a hospitality program will have a starting point for their program development.
