    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

    Hi guys,
    I m in final year B.sc(Hospitality) from DIHM Lajpat Nagar & I learn only to serve guest, clean toilets in housekeeping, got abused by seniors at the time of my training in PICCADILLY Hotel janakpuri the worsts hotel I ever seen in my career & those want to join this industry plz don't join this , don't waste ur time don't waste ur parents money & don't play with ur future…
    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…

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

    It depends upon ur area of interest
    Eg:

    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

    maggy,
    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.

    This comment for all of them who is the hotel management is not good for us….
    Hotel management job is wonderful job
    I know i know the people thinking we are doing cheap job
    Bezc because you are still working like a labour not like a professional
    We are the future of hotel management
    First we want to change and we should change the hotel management
    Love our industry

    friends this is my experience in these industry which I am shareing …I Have done my bhm from Bangalore university. I spend 4 years for this I got a campus selection in leela bglore 1 month I worked then quite because we have to work like a donkey in hk . later I join crowne plaza almost 2 years I worked and later I quite due to health problem no salary hike no promotions nothing just wasted my energy . no family life also . now I am working with it sector ….. in my batch there where 35 student's in that only 2 are working in this industry rest all left so are in banking ,retail sectors now so please thing and go a head if you are really interested in bhm then go a head, and also you have a compateator like diploma students who spents 1 or 2 years and come to industry or bsc mgmt student so thing weather you need to spent 4 years for bhm its like waste of time and money ….
