  • Abstract: ABSTRACT

    As the higher education sector of hospitality management continues its growth in the United States, there has been an increasing need to fortify the foundation of information on master’s programs. Gaps in knowledge regarding institutional characteristics, admission requirements, degree requirements, and identity of the hospitality core curriculum have been identified through reviews of existing literature. This study focused on gathering objective, secondary data to fill those gaps and provide descriptive information that will be useful for program administrators, faculty, and prospective graduate students in the United States. The results of the study indicate a lack of strong identity in the hospitality curriculum and diverse options for students regarding degree requirements.
