Abstract

This study aims to explore employers’ and educators’ perception of the relevance of hospitality management degree programmes to the industry after the introduction of tuition fee increase in the UK Universities. More specifically, it investigates whether or not undergraduate hospitality degree courses in the UK are providing relevant employability skills to work in the hotel industry and the level of practical skills expected from graduates from an employer’s perspective. This study also seeks to assess the awareness of the notion of co-creation in higher education curricular and how hospitality degree courses embed employability skills into the curriculum design to provide learner value for money.
