Many studies carried out (at individual country level and also inter-country comparative level, encompassing varied subjects in primary and secondary education as well as at university) have examined the influence of learning motivation on academic performance and satisfaction level of students. It is within this research framework that we explored the learning motivation, learning performance, and learning satisfaction level among students of hospitality and tourism course. A comparative study is being carried out between students from two institutions THTC, Taiwan (Hualien) and OSHM, India (Wynad). Students majoring (3 year programme) in hospitality & tourism programmes were selected and a structured 5-point Likert questionnaire is being administered among 200 students from THTC and 120 students from OSHM. By administering the questionnaire, we obtained information about demographic profiles of students and the three basic components about learning (motivation, performance, and satisfaction). Both sets of data about students from Taiwan and India were analysed and found to be reliable and showed a good fit. Data analysis revealed some interesting facts about student’s levels of motivation, performance, and satisfaction from the two countries.
