    Abstract

    Peter Jones and Andrew Lockwood identified some of the reasons that hospitality management research and education is in a potential spiral of decline. Undeniably one of the main reasons is that the existence of the independent Hotel School model, within a university business school, is being questioned. Marketing, human resource management, finance, operations can all be taught by subject specialists, ideally underpinned by leading research. Hotel Schools per se are not a thing of the past, far from it, world-class centres exist, they are just not the subject of this reflection.
