Abstract

As we move towards the new millennium, the challenge for universities offering programs of study in tourism and travel management is to provide avenues for learning which are reflective of the needs of the travel and tourism industry and of the technology now available. Importantly, while innovation is a key, any degree program must continue to provide suitable training and education for students such that they are 'workplace ready' upon graduation.
