When people hear the phrase “Hotel management”, they imagine visuals of a male chef in a white coat and a tall, white hat. For most people, the idea of a career in Hotel Management starts and ends with a job of cooking and serving food. But the reality is entirely different. Hospitality & Tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in the world today.

In this article, the principal of the Jindal School of Hotel Management debunks some of the common myths about Hotel Management.

Myth No:1-  Hotel Management is only for students who are weak in academics.

It is unfortunate that our society brackets students into categories such as intelligent and weak based on academic performance. The grading systems of our schools have no criteria to judge individuals on their creative abilities, social skills, leadership skills, entrepreneurial abilities etc. Hotel Management studies offer a chance for students with these abilities to shine through and hence disprove the above misconception.
