The entrepreneurial path

After having served in the industry for a couple of years and gaining enough experience, one can even start up one’s own business and become an entrepreneur. There are plenty of examples where people have achieved great success by launching business ventures like hotels, restaurants and the like.

In 2010, India saw over 50 lakh foreign tourists and 40 crore domestic tourists. The tourism industry employs over two crore people in India.

The increasing number of tourists has resulted in an expansion in the hospitality sector. With an upcoming large number of leading international hotel brands, there has been a tremendous increase in demand for hospitality professionals in all areas. Some of the big brands entering India are Hyatt, Hilton, Marriot, Kempinski and Accor.

There are now 40 international brands operating in India and new players are still joining. Each brand in turn is building chain operations across India. The biggest boom has been in the Quick Service Restaurant segment like MacDonald’s, KFC, Pizza Hut and Domino’s to name a few. Specialty restaurants have also seen a growth as the demand for specialty food like Italian, Mexican and Thai cuisine is increasing.

There is a direct correlation between the booming tourism and hospitality industry and demand for good talented people. This is a service-based industry, which wants young and energetic individuals, with creativity, passion, ambition and knowledge. In the future, students would be seeing a phenomenal growth. Now being part of this industry has become a global career choice for many. The pay scale offered by the industry is at par with the IT and engineering sector.

“An estimated one lakh career oriented professional jobs are to be filled in the current year. The demand will further increase to two lakh per year by 2015.”

Our institute was established in 1999 and since its inception it has trained more than 700 students. Most of our students are working in leading 5 star hotel chains, in different parts of the world, like U.K, U.S.A, Australia, Canada, Singapore and Thailand among others.

Despite the numerous opportunities available in the hospitality industry, the number of students pursuing a course in the field of hospitality is low due to ignorance of the job opportunities in this sector, which is still increasing. We would like to enlighten you by putting forth the career prospects that this course has to offer. We are pleased to inform you that we even offer scholarships to deserving candidates.
