Pune, April 26, 2022: The hospitality industry in India now views academia as an important part of their success story. This is one reason why there is a growing amalgamation between hotels and educational institutions. The best part remains however that most hospitality educational institutions are constantly evolving and updating themselves, to keep at pace with the changing demands and needs of the industry.
To facilitate this, many top-notch hotels today, seek opportunities to visit educational institutions to share their experiences, interact with students, indulge in brain storming sessions, and are encouraged to undertake shadow visits.
Hospitality education is going through a huge paradigm shift where integrating actual on-the-job experience is becoming an important part of the academic learning process. Additionally, many such educational institutions are also investing in training and upskilling their own faculty and staff, besides inviting prominent hoteliers over Guest lecture sessions too.
Besides, collaborating with one or the other premium name in the business of hospitality is also becoming a popular way to nurture talent from a nascent stage. At the Lexicon institute of Hotel Management for example, all this has been made possible, with their tie up with Marriott India, that has helped to create a learning ecosystem of Certifications which are offered by experts from their relevant fields. This has helped students master new forms of learning in areas like Neuro Linguistic Programming, Emotional Intelligence, Digital Marketing, Conflict Resolution, Memory Techniques, Spirit and Wine Certifications, Supply Chain Management and Personal Branding to name a few. All these are conducted by industry leaders.SEE ALSO
“Educational institutions will have to diversify and include areas of learning, that have been unheard of. Besides, the operational subject’s academia needs to inculcate those which will help managerial development, especially in the human relations and conceptual skills. When industry and academia work hand in hand, they will reach new heights of knowledge and become a powerful engine for innovation and economic growth. The academia needs to be proactive in reaching out to the industry to achieve this goal. And in turn the Leaders need to step out and make a difference to the academic world. That will be an amazing cycle to complete.”Mr. Gladvin Rego, Principal, Lexicon Institute of Hotel Management
