Abstract

The primary purpose of this research is to report on the current profile and development of hospitality programs of four-year universities in South Korea. Approximately 28 percent of four-year universities in South Korea have a hospitality program (i.e., hotel, restaurant, and/or tourism management). Information provided in this paper includes names and characteristics of institutions, website addresses of institutions, and faculty profiles. From this report, hospitality educators and practitioners will gain an understanding of South Korea's hospitality education and find access to detailed program information. International educators and Korean educators can utilize this information to help determine the adequacy of programs for potential collaboration, exchange partners, or recruiting. Industry practitioners may also use the information to recruit students as potential interns or employees as hospitality businesses expand globally and their customers become more multicultural.
