    I thnk u were not aware of the hotel management exam which had been conducted by NCHMCT and by BHMCT u are late now. Nowu r having the option to opt private colleges but there fees will be higher i prefer u to wait this year and opt for the IHM exam which will be good option for ur future.

    HM is better for those who have a great peronality…and for those who wants to go in front office……….other than its wastage of time and money plus negative comment by frnds.i have spend 4 years in HM and i have 68% marks.so m suggesting to u all do ur own business…business man can do anythings..bye

    I think only those students who have very poor grammar and English standards are against this course. It is evident from the above comments. Well, what kind of hospitality can you show if you can't converse properly with your guests/clients ? That's why you don't get a good job or a good salary. My sister studied at IHM, she works at a hotel in London. Of course, she is sophisticated and not gawar like you.

    Sunny,

    We all believe IIN ad of idea internet is so stupid…. But the hotel management ad is the one which is not stupid at the base. In order to achieve success in hotel industry u don't need a hotel management degree you join a 5star hotel as apprentice and carry a smartphone 24*7. If you have willing to learn and strong Ass to sacrifice you will be all set.
    post +2 join a 5 star hotel and bang on
    All the best

    Still u want to join then do one thing just do 20 days vocational training from any 5 star hotel they easily hire u & believe me when u complete ur 20 days training u will definitely realise how stupid this industry is & no respect no money no personal life 13 - 14 hours shift…

    The other option is , go to Singapore for HM, as they also offered Paid Internship. More over u will have international exposure.

    If you like cooking and cutting veggies food prod
    if you like serving and get urself tagged as waiter den F&B
    if u want to save rent and stay somewhere for free then bakery confectionery
    if u want to become receptionist front offce
    if u like cleaning toilet and life of janitor then Hosuekeeping
    MSC hospitality admin and other things is after that

    AS i mention earlier that there is a good scope in HM, Event mgmt , Tourism Mgmt…etc
    but u need to look at right place with right information.I know students getting good jobs abroad after getting diplomas only.
    It all depends upon individuals.

    PS- There are so many jobless PILOT , dost make any difference.
