Do you dream of a successful career in the hospitality business? Do you see yourself cooking up a storm in a kitchen or handling day-to-day operations of a luxury hotel? With India attracting more and more international hotel chains and restaurants, this is a great time to be in the industry and build your career.
Hospitality industry is a huge market of opportunities. It doesn't confine you to stick to one career option, but provides you multiple options in the industries such as hotel, tourism, food, and aviation.
Before you step into this world, you need intel on how to acquire the skills you need to excel. A lot of it will come from experience, but you need a headstart that a great college can give you. As Fritz Van Paasschen, author of Amazon best-seller The Disruptors’ Feast and the former CEO of Starwood Hotels said to us, "It's important to focus on the skills you want to keep adding to your portfolio of abilities and along the way you find things that you are enjoying, then you make sure you do the job you're doing in the best possible way. If you are building skills to support your current job, the future will take care of itself."
If you are thinking of a career in this industry, we've got this country's five best hospitality and hotel management schools that'll help you, assist you and groom you to get where you want to be.

I think for us it's one of our key priorities to make sure that we can educate more women and develop more female leaders."
