Tourism and hospitality management can be considered as one of the most booming education sectors within the country. India has been a country since centuries that has invited tourists from all around the world to discover its rich flora, fauna, and vegetation. Apart from this, the cultures and traditions of the country have been of major interest for history and architecture enthusiasts around the world. It also is one of the eight countries in the world that is the house to a wonder of the world ‘Taj Mahal.’ All of these together account for a major source of income for the country via tourism.

Catering to the needs of tourists is an art in itself and hence requires formal education before you can actually become a professional in this field. Indians especially lead their lives by the code of ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’, which means that visitors are equivalent to gods. In the real life application of the same motto, Indians follow a code and a respect for all the foreigners who visit the country.

If you are good at communicating with people as well as know how to understand someone’s needs well enough, hospitality and tourism management course can open new doors for you. If you graduate from a good college within India you might as well get a chance to work with a private company to meet the needs of the tourists for a handsome fee or better yet work with the government of India to enjoy all the perks of a government employee.
