Future and Scope of Hotel Management in India
With the increase in the tourism industry, today Hotel Management in India is not only restricted to hotels but has gone a long way.
India is being considered as one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. Tourism contributed 6.9% to our country’s GDP in 2015 and almost 8.7% of the employment. And this sector is expected to grow tremendously, roughly 7.5% of our GDP by 2025. Today, Hotel Management is not only restricted to hotels but has gone a long way to catering, clubs, food and beverage industry,resorts, airlines, cruise and many more. The hotel management forms a big part of the tourism, and the government too is in favor of investing in it and supporting it in every way possible.
Apart from glamour which is being considered as one of the important factor for students opting for hotel management, the perks, lucrative packages, and a myriad of career opportunities crossing the social, cultural and national boundaries also attract students to see themselves in this profession. Being in this industry, one may be expected to work in the following departments, i.e. management, house keeping, hospitality, front office operations, marketing and sales, accounts etc.
There are a large number of degree/diploma/certificate courses which many institutes offer. You can have a look at this link. It is very important to keep in mind the institute from where you are pursuing these courses and the placement opportunities they provide. The Hotel management Industry is not looking for scholars, but is looking for professionals who are smart and have extremely great interpersonal and communication skills. Look for an institute which will garner these skills.
The demand for smart and skilled professionals in this industry is growing in a fast pace, not only in our country but also worldwide. India’s hotel industry is dealing with lack of skilled and retainable professionals. With this age of social media everyone is aware of what to expect in an hotel and the standards one need. The ease with which one can review and rate hotels are also of the reasons for every hotel/resort to maintain their standards and stand out from their peers. For this, we need skilled graduates/professional in the Hotel Management industry.
