520    Confucian tradition has been a consistent influence in the
       development of the Taiwanese educational system. Confucius
       advocated learning through diligence, progression, 
       perseverance, and discipline in the intellectual rather 
       than practical endeavors which were considered to be 
       outside of education. Therefore, in traditional thinking, 
       technical education focused on an inferior subject, that 
       of occupational competency. Many if not most Taiwanese 
       parents hope that their children can have a "white collar"
       job instead of a "blue collar" job. The place of 
       vocational education in Taiwan has begun to change, 
       however, with the Ministry of Education's 1994 decision to
       initiate the establishment of vocationally oriented 
       programs in higher education. A number of universities and
       colleges have begun to operate programs which focus on 
       various aspects of the hospitality industry such as food 
       and beverage management, restaurant management, hotel 
       management, and leisure management. This trend has been 
       strengthened by the rise of the service sector as a major 
       segment of the employment market in Taiwan 
520    This study investigated the consensus of opinion or two 
       groups, Taiwanese university vocational educators and five
       star hotel managers, regarding the components of an 
       effective hospitality management internship program. The 
       study used the Delphi method and involved two hundred and 
       eight managers and educators. The participants were 
       divided into two groups of on hundred and three managers 
       and one hundred and five educators. Ten from each group 
       were selected to be the participants in the first, second 
       and third round of surveys of the Delphi methodology. The 
       remainder of one hundred and eighty-eight manages and 
       educators were asked to answer the fourth and the fifth 
       Likert-type questionnaires 
520    The results of the final questionnaires were analyzed and 
       all items which reached a level of 60% consensus of 
       importance were retained among the total of 145 items 
       which comprise the research populations' primary 
       recommendations in the areas of internship recruitment, 
       residential arrangements, curriculum, and compensation. 
       These components have been organized into a theoretical 
       framework which has been titled the Taiwan Hospitality 
       Management Internship Model (THMIM). This model is 
       recommended for consideration, testing and use by the 
       educational institutions and hospitality industry segments
       which are operating or are contemplating the development 
       of an internship program. It may also be helpful as a 
       paradigm for senior vocational high schools
