PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Recommended by the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel – CAPES, the Graduate Program in Hospitality looks for students who wish to pursue pure research in their advanced education with an integrated view of various aspects of hospitality: business, human relations and sustainability.

From a business perspective, the program focuses on the study of management models of service organizations, researching strategies and tools used to attract customers and achieve a competitive advantage. The hospitality business area covers several productive segments, such as lodging, food services, transportation, entertainment, meetings & events, shopping malls, banks, clubs, tourist attractions, museums, galleries, theaters, and sports facilities, among others.

In contemporary society, a better understanding of the complexity of human relations is a strategic factor both for the creation of ties with clients and stakeholders, and for the development of personal relationships aimed at improving the quality of life in communities. In this direction, the Program deals with the conceptual and epistemological dimensions of hospitality and tourism, contemplating studies on living with social structures in the city and rural areas, encompassing different areas of knowledge such as sociology, anthropology, nutrition, gastronomy, geography and others.

The study of policies for the sustainable development of hospitality in different types of communities complements the Program. The study of the relationship of space with its users provides valuable contributions to the intersection of research in tourism, architecture and urbanism, urban planning, geography, among others.

The Coordination for Improvement of Higher Education Personnel, CAPES, of the Ministry of Education, in justification of its recommendation with reference to the Master Program in Hospitality, dated March 15, 2002, states: “The field of hospitality has been gaining importance within the area of ​​tourism, as a study of the forms of accommodation, but expanding its scope to other aspects besides the hotel infrastructure, such as those related to urban infrastructure. In this sense, this disciplinary field has strategic importance for the area of ​​tourism in Brazil, lacking graduate programs with this approach.”

Given the pioneering nature of the course, it further emphasizes: “It also has national (besides regional) scope, since there is still no similar program in the country”.

Area of Concentration and Main Research Areas

The concentration area is called Hospitality and has two research areas:

  • Dimensions and Contexts of Hospitality

In this research area, studies are carried out on the dimensions of Hospitality in tourist and non-tourism contexts, that is, in the context of events, family, gastronomy, hotels, immigration, leisure, religion, tourism and urbanity. This body of knowledge translates into approaches to reception, sociability, commensality, education and scientific production, and can integrate more of these or innovative approaches. In this perspective, anthropological, communicational, cultural, historical, sociological and educational aspects are addressed, along with stimulating and limiting factors of Hospitality processes and practices in any environment, whether urban or rural.

  • Hospitality in Service Competitiveness

In this research area, studies are carried out on Hospitality from the perspective of business management in tourism and non-tourism organizations, especially those focused on services in general and in the tourism, lodging, food, hospital and event sectors. This body of knowledge helps to enhance or extend the interaction between host and customer, a strategic and decisive factor for organizations to create competitive advantages. In this perspective, approaches of marketing, communication, quality and competitiveness aspects are elements that stimulate and limit Hospitality processes and practices in services and organizations, whether public, private or non-profit.

From the historical perspective, it is proposed the investigation of the influence of the eugenic immigration policy in the regulation of tourism and the establishment of the profile of the tourist desired socially during the decades of 1930 and 1940, through two axes of research: one that analyzes tourism in a historical perspective, another that discusses the relationship between immigration and tourism.
