Many studies have revealed the motives of students of various countries to encourage them to study on the programmed for hospitality and tourism. Most of the foreign studies have found out what motivates students to choose and study in the hotel business and tourism program. In foreign studies, the influence of gender features and the course of students’ professional training on the differences in the motivation of training for Scientific and Technological Progress were also studied.

We studied the importance of the motives “educational and cognitive”, “professional”, “working”, “obtaining a diploma”, “prestige of the university”, “approval of others”, “legal aspects”, “material support” for students of the specialty “Tourism”. It confirmed that the motives of educational and professional activity of students of the specialty “Tourism” are related to the success of specialized disciplines. Statistically significant gender differences were identified in the success of the training of junior high school students in practice and in all the specialized disciplines studied. It is shown that the most significant motives of professional training for Ukrainian students of the specialty “Tourism” are the motive “working”, “professional” motives and the motive “obtaining a diploma”. Studying the gender differences of students in motivation for studying in the field showed that the motive of “material supply” and “professional” motives are significant for Ukrainian men, and the motives for “obtaining a diploma” and “Prestige of Higher Educational Institutions” are significant for Ukrainian women.
