The Tourism and Hospitality industry in India has become one of the fastest growing services sector. With the Commonwealth games, Formula 1 and the likes coming to India, the hospitality industry is seeing a tremendous growth and India is fast becoming a tourist hub. As hotels fall under the service industry, the motive of the hotel/ hospitality management courses in India is to prepare students for the challenges up ahead in the competitive service world.
Also, it must be noted that as the Indian economy is growing, Indians have higher disposable income to spend, as a result within India, the tourists have become the targeted set for the Indian hospitality industry. The young crowd, including school and college going students, are opting for tourist hot-spots in India. This has fuelled the steady increase in the hotel occupancy and domestic tourism. It is important to note that a hotel management student finds acceptance in retail, aviation, event management, hospital management, etc as well.
