The Hotel industry is a glamorous industry involving direct and personal interactions with all kinds of people, including VIPs, celebrities, high profile business persons, company executives, etc. In fact, a skilled Hotel Management professional makes even an ordinary person feel like a celebrity. Tourism & Hospitality is one of the highest foreign exchange earning industries in India. According to Wikipedia, India’s foreign exchange earnings from Tourism was USD 2,889 million (INR 104 lakh crore) in 1997. This figure increased to USD 23,146 million (INR 1,573 lakh crore) in 2016. Obviously, this has also resulted in massive job openings in various sub-sectors of Tourism & Hospitality. Added to that is the fact that more and more Indians are travelling abroad for business and pleasure. Hence, the foreign job market for Indian hotel management professionals is growing also. However, this requires skilled professionals who have completed proper training in hotel management courses.
