Cultural adjustment of international graduate students in American hospitality and tourism programs


, : Cultural adjustment of international graduate students in American hospitality and tourism programs. Hospitality Research Journal 14(2): 75-82

A study was conducted in the New England area (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut) to examine the cultural adjustment of international graduate students from three graduate programmes in hospitality and tourism management. Students reported that most information about the programme was provided by friends. They also noted that the programmes had not provided adequate orientation to the university or the programme itself.
