From The CEO's Desk Message
Welcome to the world of Hospitality, Travel and Aviation. The Hospitality and Tourism industry is one of the fastest growing Industries in the world, hence the requirement for the skilled workforce is enormous. Total contribution by the travel and tourism sector to India’s GDP is expected to increase from Rs 15.24 trillion in 2017 to Rs 32.05 trillion in 2028. Overall employment in the industry is expected to rise to 52.3 million jobs by 2028. The Government of India has set a target of 20 million foreign tourist arrivals (FTAs) by 2020 and double the foreign exchange earnings as well.
The launch of several branding and marketing initiatives by the Government of India such as ‘Incredible India!’ and ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ has provided a focused impetus to growth. Under the ‘Swadesh Darshan Scheme’ 13 thematic Circuits have been selected for development of tourism infrastructure.
Goal-oriented students who know where they are heading in life can settle into an exciting, lucrative career. Choosing a career path should be driven by the desire of what student wants to do. Days are gone when priority was given to traditional courses; now there is a perceptible shift by students in adopting non-conventional courses.
At THS, We focus on enhancing the learning experience of our students through regular practicals, assignments, workshops and various extracurricular activities. The ideal mix of hands-on training along with the world-class curriculum designed by academicians and industry practitioners will provide our students knowledge and insights needed to be successful in this challenging world. Our exceptional and highly skilled academic staff focus on the personal growth and development of each student by incorporating teamwork and collaboration with numerous activities and events.
We also polish our students and make them employable by providing various sessions on communication, personality development and interview preparation by guest faculties and industry experts. The appreciations we receive for our students from the industry motivate us to deliver quality education consistently. We make sure that the learning experience at THS is exciting, colourful and challenging, yet also an enriching experience.
We are thankful to councils and bodies like Tourism and Hospitality Skill Council ( THSC ), Tata Institute of Social Sciences - School of Vocational Education (TISS-SVE), the students, their parents and the industry in reposing trust in THS and its initiatives. I convey my best wishes to all concerned.
