Enjoying close ties with HM institutes, where lies a wealth of semi-trained, Cultured manpower, the hotels constantly invite students for internships, special occasions, competitions, sports and, indeed, for placement. Conversely the hotel managers visit institutes for delivering lectures on the best practices adopted by them, to make the students aware of the emerging trends in hospitality and to be part of the institute’s meetings and celebrations.
These close interactions build a sense of industry-academia bonding and create an atmosphere of proximity and teamwork.
