Leisure professionals support the inclusion of business courses in the recreation/leisure studies curriculum. This support has been chiefly instigated by financial exigencies experienced by the public sector. Exploring methods of blending commercial recreation and business curricula requires an examination of changes which include public-private commonalities, trends and humanization of business. Further exploration of the problems in blending these two different disciplines revealed the industrial bias of most business curriculums. A final look at the possible solutions to reflect appropriate business skills into recreation curricula reveals several approaches that may be appropriate. In conclusion, the effective inclusion of business curricula relies upon further research into competencies that reflect the field.
