Creativity is generally regarded both as an essential capability for hospitality graduates that will enable them to meet the challenges they will face, in the initial years and beyond, as career professionals and as a key element in enabling hospitality managers to operate businesses successfully. Many studies have already found that creativity can be promoted or fostered and is not a special talent found in only a few individuals. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the influences of the classroom learning environment (CLE) and motivation to learn on hospitality students' creativity. The findings of this study revealed two critical insights: (1) the important direct and indirect effects of CLE on creativity and (2) the mediating effect of intrinsic motivation (IM) on creativity. This study found that both CLE and IM to learn can independently and interactively affect hospitality students' creativity.
