In the milieu where change in inevitable, everyday brings forth new challenges. The hospitality industry too over the years has evolved ways and means to keep pace with the changing times and demand. Hotel business is the oldest commercial endeavour, know to mankind. Hospitality is one of the Worlds fastest growing Industries. Today tourism is the single largest industry in the world employing over 150 million people globally. One out of ten people in the world are employed by this industry. Today 4 million people in India are employed in Hotel, Catering and Tourism industry. The industry is growing at a healthy rate of 5% annually. In the year 2006 itself tourist arrival in India recorded 5.5 Lakhs. With the onset of globalisation the hospitality industry in India is witnessing a burgeoning growth with the demand for more rooms growing every year throwing open ample opportunities for employment. The Demand for hotel rooms have doubled with special international events round the corner, like the 2010 Commonwealth Games as well as the 2011 World Cup Cricket.  With foreign investment pouring in stock markets crossing the 20000 mark in early 2008, and with FOREX earning recorded at  3,400 Crores. There is one crucial need in the industry and that is the need for TRAINED MANPOWER. Gone are those days  when only large 5 star hotels engaged trained staff, now even medium sized establishments desire trained staff to provide their guests with professional service. It is estimated that within the next few years approximately 2 Lakhs Trained Hotel Management Professionals are required in India alone. It is but obvious that there is unlimited career opportunities in this field. Similar opportunities are available for students from Bhutan and Nepal in their own countries too.

 One of the predictions for global economy is that the growth of tourism is to be more pronounced in the Asia- Pacific region, including India. Therefore an exciting variety of career choices are available in these respective areas:
