Hotel Management

Overview

The hotel and hospitality industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. It, however, faces a constant shortage of qualified manpower and hotel management specialists to lead it. Currently, approximately one out often people around the world are employed in the hospitality industry.

Countries like China have moved way ahead of India in several sectors including tourism and hospitality. Even smaller countries like Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore are earning a lot through this industry.

India has also realized the importance of the hospitality sector and the Central Government, along with the State Governments, are now planning to revive the tourism, hotel and hospitality industry. An immediate step towards helping this industry is to pay attention to the scarcity of trained staff in this field.

One can notice several initiatives being taken in setting up educational institutions to train students in the field of ‘Hotel Management, Hospitality, Catering Technology, Travel and Tourism’. There seems to be no doubt that these students will see tremendous job opportunities and have great growth potential.

Job Opportunities

Global growth and development of tourism have provided several job opportunities for graduates in the hospitality sector.

It is clearly a myth that Hotel Management is only for those who want to become chefs or cooks. Hotel Management graduates can get jobs in the Service Sector and this stream has today emerged as an academic stream that is creating specialists for several sections of the Service Sector such as airlines, ships, cruises, banks, insurance companies, travel and tourism agencies, etc

Further with India emerging as a popular tourist and business destination, one can foresee huge job opportunities for these students in firms within the travel and tourism industry. Today, Health and Fitness are also emerging as important sectors that promise great growth potential. Hospitality graduates are in great demand by organisations in these sectors.

This academic stream also  provides  several Entrepreneurship opportunities. These students can start catering agencies that serve corporate houses or institutions or even private functions. The students can start their own confectionery, bakery houses, etc. These sectors definitely provide lucrative business opportunities for students.

Metropolitan cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Gurgaon, etc. have seen a spurt in huge Shopping Malls. The Hospitality graduates can very easily be absorbed in these service-oriented organizations also.
