VIABILITY / COMPETITION
In the Region
Tourism sector in India continues to witness encouraging trends despite the fears of global economic slowdown. The foreign tourist arrivals to India have touched 8.58 million by the end of 2017, which is an increase of 6.3% over the corresponding period of the previous year. The foreign exchange earnings for India in the tourism sector in rupee terms have touched 94,487 crores. The resilience of India tourism sector is also evident from the fact that while the growth rate of foreign tourist arrivals worldwide has been 12 % in 2017 and the average growth rate of Asia Pacific has been 9%. In the given context, there will be a growing need of trained manpower in the hospitality sector, having the right knowledge and skill sets, so as to be professionally competent to meet global standard of hospitality.
In Punjab specifically, there has been a huge boost to the hospitality sector. In the next 5 Years there are going to be 29 new properties ranging from service apartment to luxurious 5* hotels. There would be a need of approximately 10,000 trained professionals in various Departments. India’s hotel industry can be compared with the best hotels in the world. However, the hospitality based educational programmes offered by various Institutes and the curricular still focus on hotels only. As the move from hotel to hospitality, the term Hospitality is more holistic and encompasses much more than four primary functional areas in a hotel namely Front Office, Housekeeping, food & Beverage Service and Food Beverage Production. A Hotel is merely a type of establishment as opposed to hospitality, which is a phenomenon that prevails across diverse type of establishment such as Hotels, Restaurants, Airlines, Convention Centres, Events Destinations and related services. The management of these types of services requires a unique set of skills that cannot be addressed by the present hotel based curriculum being offered across the country. Keeping the above in mind and the uphill growth of the tourism industry, this unique course will be able to meet the need of the Industry & academia at all levels, offering full time course for new entrants, Diploma / Degree holder in HMCT and teachers in the hospitality tourism sectors.
The course familiarizes the students with the Hospitality/Tourism Business & Management. The course is blend of theory and practical to develop a professional attitude & skills for trade and leadership in students which are essential in the industry. Being professional in nature the course aims to inculcate professional values & ethics with focus on hospitality/tourism management & operations.
SCOPE (AS A PROFESSION)
Many hospitality careers exist in the hotels, resorts and restaurants along with allied industries such as Retail, Event Management, and Business Enabled Services. Like an MBA, the MHMCT prepares students to be theory-based, action oriented leaders of executive management teams and entrepreneurial ventures. MHMCT graduates can become entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, developers, analysts, consultants, corporate directors, managers and can also find interesting hospitality career options in related fields such as Teaching, counseling, Consulting, Marketing, Spa & Wellness, Human Resource Management or Travel and Tourism Industry.
In other words, career opportunities for students with MHMCT and several years of experience are quite different from those for individuals who are entering the hospitality industry without MHMCT.
