Course Significance

According to a recent report issued by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India, the tourism industry in India is expected to become the world’s second biggest employer by 2019. As one of the most important sectors of tourism industry, hospitality is expected to have the biggest share in the number of jobs projected. It offers career in all areas of hospitality such as Food Production, Food and Beverage, Front Office, Housekeeping, Sales and Marketing, Human Resources, Accounts/ Finance, and Security, apart from promising better prospects of career growth and top positions in hospitality management.

In fact the hospitality industry needs a large number of skilled and semi-skilled employees, but here again there is a huge gap between the supply and the demand. As the demand is much more than the actual supply, there is a requirement for a large number of hospitality management professionals competent to take on the challenge.
