Hospitality Operations: Careers in the World's Greatest Industry is specially designed to help students learn about the hospitality and tourism industry worldwide. Part I provides an overview, explains service as a "common denominator" of all organizations that operate within it, and explores basic management principles. Subsequent parts describe managing challenges within lodging, commercial and noncommercial foodservices, meetings and special events, and sports and recreational organizations. The final part explores how to obtain and succeed in one's first professional position and how to evaluate important choices as one's career evolves. Each chapter provides: A "Feedback from the Real World" feature that begins with questions for students. An industry expert responds to those questions at the end of the chapter.
