(Cr: 3)
This course will examine different approaches to curriculum design using practical examples and case studies. It will review current expectations of learning outcomes expressed by professional associations and research in hotel, restaurant, and related service industries. Students will become familiar with seeking balance between professional preparation and personal development. Students will be encouraged to link organizational strategy with the structure of curriculum designed to implement it. Concentration will be placed on the preparedness of the organization to implement the strategy, its current and projected performance capacities and organizational structure, and relationships that will lead to maximum results. An emphasis will be placed in applying these strategies to educational institutions and organizations in a global economy.
