Although considered one of the most glamorous career, hotel management requires professionals who can keep their cool even in the most challenging situations.

Hotel management include Hotel & Restaurant Management, Cruise Ship Hotel Management, Hospital Administration and Catering, Hotel and Tourism Associations, Airline Catering and Cabin Services, Club Management, Forest Lodges, Guest Houses amongst others. Expansion of global travel industry and aviation industry is expected to boost hotel industry in next couple of years.

However, candidates who do not have 50% marks in +2 can do Diploma or Certificate course in hotel management which are being offered by various institutes.
