Abstract

The importance of leadership in the hospitality field is recognized by industry professionals and educators. This study assessed self-reported leadership behaviors and leadership context of 345 undergraduate hospitality management students at eight universities in the United States. Students reported class and work as the context areas where they most frequently exhibited leadership behaviors. Mean leadership scores were higher for students who had held a position in a club, had leadership coursework, were junior or senior classification, or were female. No significant differences for mean leadership practice scores were seen based on age or having supervisory experience. Suggestions for integrating leadership into hospitality management curricula are provided.
