However, there are not many studies conducted in examining the content of those programs as well as the strength and weaknesses. Therefore, this paper highlights the new development of tourism and hospitality education program currently offered by the University Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) and explain how those programs differ from the other higher learning institutions.
