What to Know About Hospitality and Tourism Management Degree Programs

Hospitality management degrees are designed to train future leaders in the hospitality industry.

How to Study Hospitality Management

Running a company in any segment of the hospitality industry requires not only financial and marketing prowess, but also an understanding of how to create an inviting environment for guests.

The art and science of hosting strangers is an essential skill for people working in many kinds of businesses, including airlines, casinos, cruise ships, festivals, hotels and restaurants.

Running a company in any segment of the hospitality industry requires not only financial and marketing prowess, but also an understanding of how to create an inviting environment for guests. Cultivating that marketable skill set is the goal of associate, bachelor's and graduate programs in hospitality management.

What a Hospitality Management Degree Is and What Classes It Requires

The goal of any course of study in hospitality management is to train people to create and maintain spaces where others will immediately feel at home.

“Understanding how to take care of the customer is a foundational aspect of the hospitality discipline,” Angela Ramsey, senior director of communication at the University of Nevada—Las Vegas William F. Harrah College of Hospitality, explained in an email.

Hospitality management degrees are, foremost, degrees in business, says Michael Sabitoni, chair of the food and beverage management department and the international travel and tourism studies department at Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island. They include classes in accounting, finance, human resources, law and technology, he says.

However, unlike a general business degree, a hospitality degree typically includes specialized coursework focusing on the hospitality industry, such as classes on food service business operations, event management principles, and hotel and resort leadership, Sabitoni says. An overview class about tourism is also typically included in hospitality management programs, and industry internships are often mandatory, he adds.

Many hospitality degree programs require students to participate in experiential learning by helping to operate a student-run hotel or restaurant. They may also contain classes on:

  • Eco-tourism or sustainable travel
  • Global tourism and special considerations involved with international trips
  • Customer service protocols
  • Assessing the quality of guest experiences
  • Specific types of hospitality establishments, such as country clubs, golf courses, resorts, stadiums, timeshares or theme parks
  • Nuances involved in planning certain kinds of events, such as conventions or weddings
  • Concerns that face certain demographics of customers, including women and people of color
  • Various types of tourism, including business trips and visits to cultural destinations or historical sites

Top Undergraduate Schools With Hospitality Management Majors

Many U.S. colleges and universities allow undergraduates to major in hospitality management, including multiple nationally renowned academic institutions. Cornell University of New York, an Ivy League college, has a school devoted to hospitality.

Exceptional hospitality programs are often based in major metropolitan areas that attract significant tourism. For example, New York University and Boston University in Massachusetts offer a hospitality management degree.

How to Know if a Hospitality Management Degree Is Right for You

An interest in the food and beverage sector, a love for travel or an interest in entertaining people may lead someone to consider pursuing a degree in hospitality management. But prospective students should be aware that the hospitality sector has leadership roles for people with all kinds of interests and personalities.

Though some managerial positions in the hospitality industry are customer-facing jobs that require significant people skills, there are also back-of-the-house managerial jobs that concentrate on logistics, Sabitoni says.

Significant cultural awareness and strong communication abilities are essential in hospitality. Foreign language skills are also valuable but not mandatory, Sabitoni says.

What You Can Do With a Hospitality Management Degree

Hospitality programs are designed to train future leaders in the sector.

“It can include anything within the hospitality vertical, from hotel investment companies to real estate firms to our big brands which are the Marriotts, the Hiltons, the Four Seasons, to data analytics companies to Googles to Amazons,” says Kate Walsh, dean of the Peter and Stephanie Nolan School of Hotel Administration at Cornell. “Anything that touches hospitality as a part of their business product is something where our students get involved.”

Real estate investment firms often invest in hotel buildings, so people with degrees in hospitality management sometimes find jobs in the real estate sector, Walsh says. Alumni of hospitality management programs sometimes become management consultants who concentrate on assisting companies in the hospitality industry, she adds.

Executive and director roles in the industry typically require at least a bachelor's degree. Many high-level leadership positions at U.S. hospitality firms pay annual salaries above $70,000, according to an article published by, a job website.

In 2020, graduates of Cornell's Nolan School had an average base salary of slightly over $69,000 and an average bonus of nearly $15,000, according to the school's employment report .

Considerations for Potential Hospitality Students

Aspiring hospitality managers should be aware of trends that may affect them when they enter the industry, experts say.

This sector has severe labor shortages at hotels and restaurants, many of which laid off workers due to pandemic-related safety measures and now have struggled to replace those workers even after raising wages.

Because of these staffing concerns, many hospitality companies have introduced initiatives to recruit and retain talented staff, improve working conditions, increase job satisfaction and reduce employee turnover, Walsh says.

When comparing hospitality programs, prospective students should investigate whether those programs include experiential learning opportunities, experts say, noting that hands-on projects are one of the best ways to gain hospitality skills. It’s also optimal if hospitality schools offer courses on design, which can inform aesthetic choices about how a hospitality venue looks, according to experts.

“I think the industry needs innovative thinkers," Walsh says. "They need people who think big culturally, who are comfortable with different modes of work, so it’s a great time to join the industry. The industry is trying to be extremely intentional in providing compelling career paths.”

  • King-size bed — A king-size bed is the largest size of standard beds (around 76 x 80 inches), and can comfortably sleep two people.

Now that we know the bed sizes, let’s take a look at standard hotel room types. Be careful though, because these terms are used differently by different hotels. Check at your hotel to see what each type of room contains.

  • Single room — A single room is for one person and usually has a full-size bed.
  • Double room — A double room usually has space for two guests, with a full-size or queen-size bed.
  • Twin room — A twin room usually has space for two guests but in two separate beds (twin/single beds).
  • Triple room — A triple room can sleep three guests, either in one double bed and a single bed or three single beds. 
  • Suite — A suite is bigger than your normal hotel room. In fancy hotels, suites could even have multiple rooms. You might also see an executive suite or a family suite.
  • Connecting rooms — This means that two rooms are connected together by a door going from one room directly into the other. Large groups of people or families might ask to be put in connecting rooms.
  • Adjoining rooms — Rooms that are next to each other but not connected by a door.


Here are various features that hotel rooms might offer.

  • Amenities — Amenities is just another way of saying “features,” often used in the hotel business. Hotel room amenities can include air conditioning/heating, internet access, a balcony and more. Hotel amenities can include a pool, gym, etc. (more on these later). 
  • Air Conditioning (AC) — Air conditioning (usually shortened to “AC”) keeps rooms cool when the weather is hot.
  • Heating — When the weather is cold, heating will keep the rooms and hotel warm.
  • Bathroom — This is the room where you’ll find a toilet, sink and shower. Most hotel rooms have their own bathroom attached (within the room).
  • Internet access — If a hotel has internet access, it means guests can use the internet somewhere inside. They might have Wi-Fi (wireless internet), which could be free or cost money to use and typically requires a password to access.
  • Wireless printing — This allows guests to print from their own computers to a printer somewhere else in the hotel (without being connected to the printer with a wire).
  • Fan — Some rooms might have ceiling fans or electric fans to move air around and keep the room cool. 
  • Balcony — A balcony is a small outdoor space connected to the hotel room. Balconies are on floors higher than the ground level (second floor and higher).
  • Patio —A patio is a paved area outside (on ground level) that usually has an outdoor table and chairs.
  • Smoke-free — If rooms are smoke-free, it means that smoking is not allowed. Smoking and non-smoking  are two other terms used to describe if smoking is allowed or not.
  • Complimentary — This adjective means “free.” Often hotels will serve a complimentary breakfast (included in the cost of your room) or have complimentary shampoos and soaps in the bathroom.


Here are some words that you might need to use when talking about the inside of a hotel room.

  • Bathtub — A bathtub is in the bathroom, where people can wash themselves by taking a bath.
  • Shower — Showers allow people to wash themselves while standing up. The shower head is the part that sprays water and the drain  is on the floor, where the water leaves. Most bathtubs have showers in them, but a standing shower  is in a smaller space by itself (without a bathtub).
  • Towel — People use towels to dry themselves off after taking a shower or a bath. There are also hand towels, which are smaller, and a bath mat —a towel or small rug you put on the floor to stand on.
  • Robes — Some hotels provide robes for guests to wear after they shower. They’re also called bathrobes .

  • Lamp — Lamps provide extra light somewhere in the room. Guests might tell you that a light burned out in their lamp, meaning it needs a new light bulb .

  • Kitchenette — This is a mini-kitchen where people can prepare basic food, usually with a sink and microwave . Many hotel rooms have a mini-fridge (small refrigerator) that has some beverages (drinks) and snacks inside. If guests eat the snacks and beverages, they have to pay for them when they check out.

  • Banquet / meeting room — This is a large room used for big events, such as conferences or weddings.
  • Elevator — This is a small space that raises and lowers guests between floors once the doors close and they press a button. It’s called a lift  in British English.

When the wedding guests call the hotel, they should mention that they’re with the [Names] wedding party to get the lower price (and be put in the correct room).


  • Check-in / check-out — When guests arrive at the hotel, they check in to get their room key. On their last morning, they check out to pay their bill.
  • Key card — Most hotels use key cards (that look like credit cards) instead of an actual key to get into the room. Sometimes the magnetic strip on the card gets damaged or deactivated so that it won’t open the door correctly and needs to be replaced.

You can use hotel websites or travel booking sites like Expedia or to learn new words through this fun game. In a scavenger hunt, you have a list of things that you have to find within a certain time.

But in this version, you don’t have to go anywhere. Just print out this post and search for the words from the list on hotel websites. When you find a word, mark it on the list and read the sentence or section it’s in to understand its meaning.

Challenge yourself by setting a timer and see how many words you can find in five minutes. Keep practicing until you find all the words!

You can learn new vocabulary and practice your pronunciation and listening skills by watching authentic English media. Here are some ideas to get started:

  • Travel vloggers. These “video bloggers” often talk about the hotels they’ve stayed at, restaurants, local attractions and other travel-related subjects—topics you’ll likely discuss with hotel guests. For example, check out the videos by Jessica Olivia Travels or ViaTravelers.
  • Comedy skits. There are a few funny Saturday Night Live skits set in hotels like this one about checking in  and this one about checking out . They make fun of (joke about) how these processes can sometimes take longer than the guest may prefer.
  • Movies and TV Series. Try watching movies or TV shows that take place in a hotel. The Wes Anderson film “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and the hugely popular TV series “The White Lotus” on HBO are two great options.

FluentU takes authentic videos—like music videos, movie trailers, news and inspiring talks—and turns them into personalized language learning lessons.

What IHCL’s 4th Hotel in Varanasi Says About India’s Religious Tourism Boom

Bulbul Dhawan , Skift

May 3rd, 2024 at 8:18 AM EDT

Religious tourism is booming in India and hospitality companies are now catching up to cater to this demand.

Bulbul Dhawan

Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) announced the signing of a fourth hotel in Varanasi, a 101-key Ginger hotel. It currently has two Taj Hotels and a SeleQtions hotel (as part of the Tree of Life conversion) in Varanasi, a city with deep cultural and religious significance.

On Thursday, IHCL also announced the signing of its reimagined Gateway brand in Sarnath further strengthening the hotel company’s spiritual tourism circuit.

With these two additions, IHCL will have 24 properties in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, of which 11 are under development. 

Once popular for being home to the Taj Mahal in Agra, Uttar Pradesh is now looking to build itself as a religious tourism hub through cities like Prayagraj, Kashi, Ayodhaya, Varanasi and Sarnath.

The Uttar Pradesh government has launched about 500 projects with an investment of more than INR 850 billion ($10.2 billion) to develop religious and spiritual tourism spots.

Impact of Religious Tourism

The tourism industry in Uttar Pradesh has been transformed after the inauguration of the Kashi-Vishwanath corridor in Varanasi in December 2021, according to state tourism deputy director Preeti Srivastava said.

“After that, in 2022 and 2023, a total of more than 130 million tourists visited the pilgrim city. The success from this project was also implemented in other parts of the country, including Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh.”

She added that with Ayodhya now being developed as a religious destination, and Mathura next in line the tourism prospects of Uttar Pradesh are set to bolster. while noting the Holi and Easter Holiday trends in March had also noted that spiritual destinations were among the most-searched . 

In January, the public opening of a controversial Hindu temple in Ayodhya saw half a million visitors on the first day.

On December 31, Oyo Group CEO Ritesh Agarwal had tweeted, “80% more users are searching for stays in Ayodhya today! Seeing one of the highest spikes.”

Na hills, na beaches!  80% more users are searching for stays in Ayodhya today! Seeing one of the highest spikes 👀  #CheckIn2024 — Ritesh Agarwal (@riteshagar) December 31, 2023

“If a destination like Varanasi, Ayodhya, or Mathura is developed, the tourists that visit will then spill over to other regions. Since these are one or at most two-day destinations, tourists then prefer to club more cities in Uttar Pradesh together. There are many tourists who come to Lucknow, which allows them to explore the Mughal heritage. They then go to Ayodhya, Prayagraj, and Varanasi,” she said, adding that tourists also visit smaller destinations along the way. 

Entry of Hospitality Brands

Expecting its annual tourist footfall to reach 850 million by 2028, the state is seeking to create a robust hotel supply chain, paving the way for the entry of major hospitality brands.

Accordingly it is eyeing investments to the tune of INR 320 billion ($3.8 billion) in the hospitality sector to cater to the expected increase in demand. The focus is on tourism hotspots of Varanasi, Ayodhya, Prayagraj and Agra.

Last year, Japanese hotel chain Hotel Management International (HMI) signed an agreement to develop 30 new hotels in the state. These will be located in Agra, Varanasi and Ayodhya. 

HMI public relations director Takamoto Yokoyama said, “Uttar Pradesh’s efforts to realize and develop the tourism potential have created immense possibilities for the hotel industry. Varanasi has seen a significant increase in tourism after the development of the Kashi-Vishwanath corridor. For us, this is a great chance.”

Some recent key developments in the spiritual destinations in Uttar Pradesh include:

  • Wyndham Hotels and Resorts opened a Ramada Plaza in Varanasi last year
  • ITC Hotels signed boutique hotel Storii Prayagraj in May 2023
  • IHCL and Radisson Hotels Group have expressed interest in opening five-star hotels in Prayagraj
  • Hilton Opened DoubleTree by Hilton in Varanasi in September 2023

The Ayodhya Effect

Currently, this boom is led by hotel development in Ayodhya, which was revamped recently in the run-up to the consecration ceremony of the Ram temple held in January .

The town could attract over 50 million tourists annually, according to a report by brokerage firm Jeffries.

In January, Radisson opened its Park Inn by Radisson in the city. In an interview with Skift , Radisson Hotel Group executive vice president Elie Younes said that religious cities in India are a focal point. Another Radisson hotel is coming up in Ayodhya, while it has one under development in Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh. 

Last year, IHCL signed two hotels in Ayodhya under the Ginger and Vivanta brands. The company signed its third hotel at the destination this year, under the IHCL SeleQtions brand, and is planning a fourth property under the Taj brand. 

Apart from this:

  • Domestic hospitality company Lemon Tree Hotel is also planning a 200-key property in Ayodhya
  • Online travel company EaseMyTrip also entered the hospitality industry with a hotel in the holy city
  • Wyndham has signed a Ramada Encore hotel in Ayodhya
  • Hilton is also looking at Ayodhya as it ramps up signings in India.

Discover Moscow

A Moscow state of mind

Moscow by night

Moscow is a city of many facets but, to all who visit, the iconic domes of St. Basil's Cathedral and majestic sweep of Red Square do add up to a bewitching mix of monumentality and mystery. The surprises do not stop at these famous locations, however: get ready for a safe and modern metropolis with a multitude of colours, lots of character and an admirable defiance of the elements too: the winter calendar heats up too. The city simply crackles with cultural life and buzzes 24/7—but from the bustle of the MKAD Moscow Ring Road to the soaring spires of the Moscow State University and space-age swagger of Ostankino Tower, it's also that monumental state of mind.

And yes, a little mystery too. Patriach's Pond, Patriarshiye Prudy to the locals, appears in many stories but come to Moscow and you will find that the place really exists, a haven of genteel charm and throwback to the 19th century that's still part of the Moscow's mega-sized urban fabric (with a monument to the author too). Yes! This city invites wandering with the unfamiliarity serving as the greatest of temptations for the urban explorer: it may take you to the leafy courtyard of a hidden museum, to a rooftop bar with a smashing view of this glittering northern global city or to one of the underground peoples' palaces, those vaunted stations of the Moscow Metro. Moscow in its sheer size and in its inscrutability is something that few global cities actually are: a thrill. Exploring it is both an education and thoroughly modern exercise in exhilaration.

Understand that Moscow is Russian to the core but a colossal human achievement as well: we are talking about a city founded in 1147 that is now home to more than 12 million people. Historical heft, meet modern allure and say hello to more than 250 theaters, 450 museums and 13 000 restaurants. No wonder Moscow won, for the second year in a row, the World's Leading City Destination award at the World Travel Awards this year, because simply put this city is a winner. The introduction of the Russian e-visa in January 2021 will make it easier than ever for citizens of 52 countries to get acquainted with Moscow as will RUSSPASS , a new digital travel service that will allow visitors to fully plan a trip to Russia and Moscow by offering more than 600 destinations, tours and author's routes all over Russia. RUSSPASS was launched in July and since then 82 regions of the Russian Federation have signed cooperation agreements with it — and more than half of their offers are already on the site. As RUSSPASS encompasses a wide range of city services and attractions—museums, parks, restaurants, theatres, cafes, and other city events from all over Russia— any person living in Moscow, or anywhere inside or outside Russia can now easily organize a customized travel itinerary or pick a ready-made tourist product. Currently available in Russian and English versions, in the future RUSSPASS will also be available in other languages.

Once you're in Moscow and though it's easier to navigate than you might think—metro signs and announcements, for example, are in both Russian and English. But try your hand at learning how to say Red Square like a local (it's easy: Krásnaya plóshchad ) then go and behold the marvels it contains: the massive St. Basil's Cathedral , completed in 1561 by order of Ivan the Terrible to mark his victory over the Tartar Mongols and with its exuberant onion-shaped domes, and of course the crème de la crème itself, the Kremlin fortress . The Kremlin is almost as old as Moscow itself, though Italian architects expanded it in the 15th century. There you can see the Russian Orthodox cathedrals with their remarkable painted frescoes, Peter the Great's Arsenal and the Ivan the Great Belltower, but book a private tour to see the Grand Kremlin Palace and tsars' private rooms. One side of Red Square is now home to stunning Zaryadye Park , which was designed by the architects of New York's High Line. The vast park is divided into four climatic sections and features a cool cantilevered viewing post suspended 70 meters above the River Moskva. There's also a brand new tourist information centre at the park.

Moscow is much more than dramatic public squares and cathedrals, of course. The multitude of museums includes the Pushkin State Museum of Arts, with everything from mummies to Rembrandt paintings, the State Historical Museum, the All-Russian Exhibition Centre (VDNH) park with its pavilions commissioned back in 1939 (admission is free), and Museum of Cosmonautics, with its epic monument of a steel rocket blasting to the sky. In Gorky Park you'll find, along with plenty of cafes and restaurants, the sleek Garage Museum of Contemporary Art . The Tretyakov Gallery contains masterpieces of Russian art from the eleventh century up to the early twentieth—Vrubel, Kandinsky, and Malevich are some of the big names represented among the 190,000 artworks displayed in the elegant gallery.

And expect Moscow to shatter some preconceived notions you might have about the Russian capital. The Bolshoi, for example, is not just for ballet anymore! You can nibble on caviar and blinis at a luxe restaurant right behind the famous theatre. In fact, the gourmet dining and cosmopolitan nightlife scene in Moscow can only be described as fabulous, and culinary scenesters are truly spoiled for choice. This is the world in one city but a connected global city too, and one that's primed for business. Moscow supports the tourism and hospitality industry too, and a key industry initiative was the launch of the Moscow Travel Hub online platform last spring. The main aim of the Hub is to provide conditions for the creation of new products and services, developing a collaboration and implementation of new technologies in the tourism industry.

Moscow also offers great opportunities for youth tourism. It has developed the unique "City of discoveries" project that lets 18-to-35s explore the capital during their trip by being proactive 'researchers' of the city. There are eight educational routes consisting of such industries as energy, transport and space, digital technologies and telecommunications, ecology, creative industries, biotechnology and biomedicine, humanities, and urbanism. In spring of 2020 Moscow held Russia's first tourism hackathon (Moscow Travel Hack, with more than 260 participating developer teams), and the official tourist information portal Discover.Moscow is practically an encyclopedia of Moscow. There you can find not only a selection of interesting places and routes, but also learn about "secret places" that are known only to Muscovites, read interviews with noted chefs of Moscow restaurants, find unique archival materials about the capital and even more.

hospitality and tourism lyrics

But the discoveries are for all ages and are all around Moscow. While the borders are still closed, you can get the latest information on Moscow's top sights, family vacation destinations, and cultural and culinary events using the online platform #Moscowwithyou . Start with virtual visits of the highlights there to prepare you for your Moscow city experience when you come here, from gleaming modern skyscrapers to the pastel shades of the building facades on atmospheric Arbat Street, one of the oldest streets in the city. Your urban impressions will be exciting and diverse, from the commercial bustle of historic Tverskaya Street to the relaxation of an invigorating "branch massage" at one of the city's traditional banya steam baths. Add some quality cultural time in your museums of choice and maybe a night (or two) on the town in 1905 Street, an area of restaurants and nightclubs on the banks of the River Moskva, and in no time at all you too may find yourself settling into something quite rightly called a Moscow state of mind.

Angola-UAE Chamber of Commerce and Industry aims to strengthen bilateral cooperation in tourism, hospitality

A BU DHABI, 8th May, 2024 (WAM) -- Dr. M'zée Fula Ngenge, Vice Chairman of the Angola-UAE Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said that the UAE investment climate provides Angola citizens with qualitative opportunities that highlight their capabilities and energies in enhancing trade between the two countries.

In statements to the Emirates News Agency (WAM) on the sidelines of the second day of the 13th AIM Congress in Abu Dhabi, Dr. M'zée Fula Ngenge noted the presence of over 63 Angolan companies in the UAE, spanning various sectors, notably automotive, electronics, gold, and diamonds trading.

Expressing his aspirations to bolster cooperation between the two nations in tourism and hospitality, Dr. Ngenge highlighted tourism's role in Angola's infrastructure development and investment stimulation. He emphasised the potential for increased air traffic between the UAE and Angola, both for passengers and cargo, which would boost the latter's exports, particularly in agricultural products to the UAE.

Dr. Ngenge underscored the significance of the Angola-UAE Chamber of Commerce and Industry's participation in the AIM Congress, citing it as an opportunity to showcase Angola's investment potential and attract Emirati investors, emphasising the invaluable expertise Emirati investors bring to Angola's economic advancement.

The Taliban are working to woo tourists to Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Around 30 men are crammed into a Kabul classroom, part of the debut student cohort at a Taliban-run institute training tourism and hospitality professionals.

It’s a motley crew. One student is a model. Another is 17 and has no job history.

The students vary in age, education level and professional experience. They’re all men — Afghan women are banned from studying beyond sixth grade — and they don’t know anything about tourism or hospitality. But they are all eager to promote a different side of Afghanistan. And the Taliban are happy to help.

Afghanistan’s rulers are pariahs on the global stage, largely because of their restrictions on women and girls . The economy is struggling, infrastructure is poor, and poverty is rife .

And yet, foreigners are visiting the country, encouraged by the sharp drop in violence, increased flight connections with hubs like Dubai , and the bragging rights that come with vacationing in an unusual destination. The numbers aren’t huge — they never were — but there’s a buzz around Afghan tourism.

In 2021, there were 691 foreign tourists. In 2022, that figure rose to 2,300. Last year, there were 7,000.

Mohammad Saeed, the head of the Tourism Directorate in Kabul, said the biggest foreign visitor market is China because of its proximity and large population. Afghanistan also has advantages over some of its neighbors.

“They’ve told me they don’t want to go to Pakistan because it’s dangerous and they get attacked . The Japanese have said this to me also,” Saeed said. “This is good for us.”

But there are disadvantages, too.

FILE - Afghan families onboard a truck head toward a border crossing point in Torkham, Pakistan, Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2023. For more than 1 million Afghans who fled war and poverty to Pakistan, these are uncertain times. Since Pakistan announced a crackdown on migrants last year, some 600,000 have been deported and at least a million remain in Pakistan in hiding.

Visas are difficult and expensive to access. Many countries severed ties with Afghanistan after the Taliban returned to power , and no country recognizes them as the legitimate rulers of the country.

Afghan embassies either closed or suspended their operations. There’s an ongoing power struggle between Afghanistan’s embassies and consulates staffed by people from the former Western-backed administration, and those under the Taliban administration’s full control .

Saeed concedes there are obstacles for Afghan tourism to develop but said he was working with ministries to overcome them.

His ultimate aim is to have a visa on arrival for tourists, but that could be years away. There are problems with the road network, which is half-paved or non-existent in some parts of the country, and airlines largely avoid Afghan airspace .

The capital Kabul has the most international flights, but no Afghan airport has direct routes with major tourist markets like China, Europe, or India.

Despite the challenges, Saeed wants Afghanistan to become a tourism powerhouse, an ambition that appears to be backed by the Taliban’s top leaders.

“I have been sent to this department on the instructions of the elders (ministers). They must trust me because they’ve sent me to this important place.”

The students also have aspirations. The model, Ahmed Massoud Talash, wants to learn about Afghanistan’s picturesque spots for Instagram posts and its history for media appearances.

Business school graduate Samir Ahmadzai wants to open a hotel but thinks he should know more about tourism and hospitality first.

“They hear that Afghanistan is backwards, poverty and all about war,” said Ahmadzai. “We have 5,000 years of history. There should be a new page of Afghanistan.”

Classes include Afghan handicrafts and anthropology basics.

An unofficial subject is how to interact with foreign women and how their behavior or habits could clash with local customs and edicts. Examples might be women smoking or eating in public, to mixing freely with men who are not related to them by blood or marriage.

The Taliban have imposed a dress code for women and requirements for them to have a male guardian, or mahram, when they travel. Dining alone, traveling alone, and socializing with other women in public have become harder. With gyms closed to women and beauty salons banned , there are fewer places where they can meet outside the home.

In a sign that the country is preparing for more overseas visitors, the country’s only five-star hotel, the Serena, has reopened its women’s spa and salon for foreign females after a monthslong closure.

Foreigners must show their passport to access services. Women with “born in Afghanistan” on their ID are barred.

The restrictions on Afghan women and girls weigh on overseas travel companies, who say they try to focus on the positive aspect of cultural interactions by making donations, supporting local projects or only visiting family-run businesses.

Shane Horan, the founder of Rocky Road Travel, said visiting Afghanistan should not be seen as an endorsement of any particular government or political regime.

“Ultimately, the goal should be to support responsible tourism practices that contribute positively to the local economy and foster mutual respect and understanding, while also remaining cognizant of the broader political context in Afghanistan.”

He said there was no input from authorities about what tour groups saw or did, and that the company worked closely with a women’s rights organization in Afghanistan. A percentage of the tour cost went into supporting this organization’s programs, Horan added.

There are no women at the Institute of Tourism & Hotel Management. The students don’t mention it. But an official at the Tourism Directorate does.

“It’s a heartbreaking situation,” said the official, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals. “Even female family members ask if they can study here. But there was a change in policy with the change in government. The women who were studying before (the takeover) never came back. They never graduated.”

Hospitality expert with international teaching experience brings entrepreneurial perspective to students

Chang brings knowledge of organizational behavior and human resources to department of hospitality, hotel management and tourism.

February 9, 2024 - by Paul Schattenberg

An expert with wide-ranging hospitality, international teaching and entrepreneurial experience, Wen Chang, Ph.D., has joined the Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Department of Hospitality, Hotel Management and Tourism as an assistant professor.   

Chang, who earned her graduate and doctoral degrees in the U.S. and taught here before going back to her native China, has returned to the U.S. to share her knowledge and experience with students and colleagues in the department.  

Her expertise ranges from human resources, financial, revenue and leadership management in the tourism industry to hospitality management, operations and law. Her industry experience spans food and beverage management, as well as spa and recreation management.

Headshot of a woman, Wen Chang, Ph.D. She is wearing a blue jacket with a white shirt.

“Dr. Chang brings a wealth of personal experience and expertise related to the hospitality industry, as well as an international background as an instructor,” said Brian King, Ph.D., head of the Department of Hospitality, Hotel Management and Tourism. “Our department and students are benefiting from her knowledge of issues relating to organizational behaviors within the hospitality industry, focusing primarily on employee motivations, leadership and technology-mediated service quality enhancements.”

King added that Chang’s contributions to academia and industry reflect her dedication to advancing knowledge and improving the hospitality sector.

“I feel my international teaching experience and familiarity with both the Chinese and U.S. hospitality industries will bring a new perspective to the department and my students,” Chang said. “And having owned and operated my own business, I also bring an entrepreneurial perspective to my teaching.”  

Education and teaching experience

Chang earned a bachelor’s degree in tourism and hotel management from the School of Tourism and Hotel Management at Dongbei University of Finance and Economics in Dalian, China. She came to the U.S. in 2009 to continue her studies, earning a master’s degree in hotel and restaurant management from the Conrad Hilton School of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston. After that, she earned her doctorate in hotel administration from the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Chang’s extensive experience includes time as the associate dean at the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management and as an associate professor and director of international programs at the Dongbei University of Finance and Economics.   

Chang also spent time as an assistant professor at Iowa State University’s College of Human Science Department of Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management, and as a visiting lecturer and teaching assistant at the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for five years.

“In my teaching, I strive to give my students the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in the hospitality industry,” Chang said. “I want them to know the way things really are, why they matter and why they should be done a certain way. My main goal with my students is to prepare them for a career in the industry.”  

Chang chaired master’s committees and served on several doctoral committees at Iowa State University and Dongbei University of Finance and Economics. She was also an external Doctor of Hotel and Tourism Management committee member at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Publications, presentations and achievements

Chang’s work has been published in numerous peer-reviewed publications, and she has served as an editorial board member for the International Journal of Contemporary Hospitality Management and the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Insights.

Chang has made conference presentations on a wide variety of topics, including employee performance, leadership influence, service robots, wine consumer behaviors, anger in hospitality, employee engagement, tourism career motivators and barriers, career satisfaction, formal mentoring, social media use and more.

She has also successfully secured research grants from the National Science Foundation of China and the Liaoning Provincial Development and Reform Commission, as well as teaching grants from the Educational Department of Liaoning Province.   

Chang also received internal grants and scholarships from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; the University of Houston; the Dongbei University of Finance and Economics; and the Tianjin University of Finance and Economics.
