dc.description.abstractThe field of tourism and hotel management education has continued to mature over the past decade. As a result, the range of tourism and hospitality courses and topics has grown (for instance, club management, gaming management, sustainable tourism.) One area that has not, to date, received much attention within university curriculum is timeshare resort management. This is somewhat surprising as timeshare resorts represent one of the fastest growing tourism sectors in many parts of the world. This article describes the recent growth of the timeshare resort industry, the structure of the industry, and the available career opportunities. It then provides a contrast of the functions undertaken between timeshare resorts and hotels. The final section of the article reports on the development of timeshare resort management as part of the hotel management curriculum at an Australian university.
