Confucius once said “Choose a job you love and you won’t have to work a single day of your life’. The choice of a career is one of the most important decisions a person can make in his/her life. It is also one of the most difficult.
Studying hospitality management should not be a chance or a trend neither a fashion. One must have a will, an ambition and a passion for this field. Hospitality Management is now a major area of academic study, research and publishing.
The School of Hospitality Management (SHM), Ansal University with the academic collaboration of Vatel International, France has been a pillar in the hospitality industry and an invaluable talent resource, as well as a beacon of hope for many aspiring students. SHM is one of the most esteemed and well-known hospitality management school in India and abroad. This is due to its four core elements: Our cutting-edge programs that are dynamic, our state-of-the-art infrastructure, our faculty members that are very professional and internationally experienced and certainly our talented students who are our future ambassadors in the hospitality industry worldwide.
The School’s objective is to nurture all-round individuals who will be able to contribute to the advancement and betterment of the hospitality industry within the region and beyond.
As the world evolves and the industry with it, we need to continue to evolve our curricula, in order to maintain that delicate balance between education, industry, and students. Students need to be prepared to meet industry demands. At the same time, our industry needs graduates who can lead and drive innovation and growth.
We want our students to develop their academic knowledge but most importantly their cultural and ethical values and the respect for others. At the School of Hospitality Management, we prepare our students to be life-long learners, innovators, and professionals capable of being the next new generations of leaders in their careers, committed to personal integrity and civic responsibility. It is now our pleasure to show you how we are fulfilling that mission.
The School offers a dynamic, vibrant and motivated teaching and learning environment with committed staff that have substantial industry experience, high-level teaching abilities and academic strength. In addition to various forms of classroom learning, significant emphasis is also placed on industry engagement and training, site visits and case studies, as well as other relevant industry activities.
The SHM is building upon the model that has produced so many successful alumni over the years, but our sight is set on raising the bar. We aim to redefine hospitality education. Future graduates will have the option to focus on growth areas, such as food and beverage science, Facility planning and Entrepreneurship development and, with faculty collaboration, hone in on research and innovation.
We encourage our students to develop a positive, motivated, enthusiastic and forward looking attitude. They are expected to participate in extra-curricular activities and to cultivate their awareness of social responsibilities. We also believe that an international perspective with understanding of different cultures will strongly contribute to students’ development and future career potential. Vatel’s Marco Polo program gives the platform to strengthen this aspect. Upon graduation, students will be not only competent professionals but also effective communicators, good team players and critical thinkers.
Building upon the legacy of the leaders before me, now more than ever, we will focus on student success, the cornerstone of Ansal University. We’ll forge intimate industry relationships to amplify resources for the students, while we strengthen the existing relationships that make us unique and set us apart, such as our collaboration Vatel International, France.
I embrace this responsibility and will devote all my time and energy to preparing and educating those who will lead us in the future.
