One of the major deficiencies is identified here is the lack of appropriate tourism education. There is a dire need for tourism professionals in Bangladesh that can be prepared through proper tourism education. But most educational institutes are not equipped adequately and developed to provide an progressive level of tourism to cope with the current need of the tourism industry because of short of investment. This chapter mainly focuses on the development and investment scenario in tourism education in Bangladesh. This chapter finds out that the lack of coordination of different stakeholders of the industry is caused for not having a proper development plan for tourism education. Not only that, there is not enough investment in this sector from public and private organizations. It is recommended that this industry needs a fundamental transformation from the primary level to the tertiary level, which including curriculum, program offering, pedagogy, andragogy, research, training, and learning environment. The chapter concludes in the hope that these necessary measures will embellish this industry that will convert human forces to human capital and create a great impact on the country’s GDP and the growth of the international market.
