Hospitality management graduate perceptions of management development practices


Companies have long recognized the importance of training and developing their managers in order to prepare them for their short and long-term careers.

Therefore, it would be pertinent to ask whether these programs are perceived to be effective in the eyes of the entry-level managers exposed to them. This study will seek a deeper understanding of the management development practices, procedures, techniques and their effects on job satisfaction, and organizational commitment.
