Impact of Institutional Features on Hospitality Education


This book is aimed to examine the impact of institutional features on hospitality education using evidence from Bangladesh. Bangladesh is one of the world's emerging economies that is expected to grow and play a leading role in the global economy. The country, officially known as The People's Republic of Bangladesh, is the world's most populous country, ranking just behind its neighbor Pakistan. The main objectives of this book were: to explore the key attractions and developments in the hospitality industry, to examine the challenges facing Bangladesh Tourism and hospitality industry, to explore the institutional factors that influence the training of human resources; and to assess the importance of discipline in hospitality management. The author interviewed several respondents and their views regarding the impact of institutional features on hospitality education in Bangladesh collected. The study findings reveal that several institutional factors play a critical role in the direction that Bangladesh tourism takes and help shape the future of the industry. Lack of investment in human resources and lack of physical infrastructure have an adverse effect on the growth of tourism. It is also evident from the respondents that the first step towards tourism prosperity in Bangladesh involves having the government and the bureaucrats behind any chosen form of intervention. The study has the potential of informing policy as it is related to investment in the training of personnel to perform a critical role in the hospitality industry in Bangladesh. The development of tourism is seen by many as holding the key to opening up some of the underdeveloped regions of the country.
