I followed my father’s footsteps and mastered skills to become a part of the education industry
I started my career with the IT Industry before moving to the Education Sector. I have worked with various corporates. My late father was a pioneer in the field of Educational Institutions here in the capital city of Odisha. I practiced and mastered certain skills and decided to follow in his footprints to contribute to this industry with my hard work. Perhaps that ultimately also propelled me to continue to study further. And slowly I developed my passion to be an educator looking to build a professional career for future business leaders who would be shaping the destiny of India by bringing about economic development and prosperity to our great Nation.
I inherited the leadership qualities from my early days and that gave me a direction to move forward
I encourage my team to set goals that also focus on organizational goals. I also believe I have a good team who is self-capable of taking decisions. They are able to carry the responsibilities in a smooth manner. Whenever we have any critical decision making, I come forward and contribute in a precise manner. Being a true leadership, I believe one needs strong confidence, positive attitude, and good temperament in taking decisions.
We have high competition in the field of education here in Odisha
Lot of colleges are coming up with these courses understanding very well the requirements of this industry. But, I genuinely feel that today’s youth is not still aware how vast this Hospitality & Tourism industry is, and the level of opportunities and employment this sector can provide. We are focusing and nurturing our students to be flag-bearers of Tomorrow.
- Motivate the students to undertake hard-work and intense brain exercises.
- Assign the students with homework and study real-life cases towards brainstorming
- Nurture and groom the students as Managers of Tomorrow through change of attitude.
- Analyze the students’ performances to pinpoint their shortcomings and weak-points.
- Grade the students’ performance routinely to inform their progress to parents.
- Evaluate the students’ overall performances through project work, presentation, etc.
- Review the students’ overall performances to point out their strengths and weaknesses.
In Hospitality & Tourism Industry, a candidate needs to be driven in a good, structured manner
No doubt our country’s study culture focuses mainly on theory aspects specifically the syllabus that has been designed and prescribed by respective Universities whereas in foreign countries we get more practical exposure. And when it comes to the Hospitality & Tourism Industry, a candidate needs to be driven in a good, structured manner for getting more exposure in the practical field in order to have a good industry exposure before completing their respective courses. We are also sending candidates for Industrial training to multiple units in the form of internship in between their course completion to get a strong and practical experience before going head for placement in later semesters. We have installed highly equipped laboratories so as to give them a practical field. Our trainers are highly experienced and come with a good amount of experience from the Industry. We are also focusing on the communication skills which are equally very important in this industry.
Both the Tourism & Hospitality Sectors comes under the upcoming and flourishing Industry Category across the World
Our curriculum is followed based on the University practices which is thoroughly designed following the current sector expectations. Both the sectors are in urgent need of trained professionals. As per various reports, there was an urgent need of more than 2.03 lakhs trained professionals for recruitment in Tourism & Hospitality Sector just before the COVID – 19 Pandemic that has temporarily affected the Industry very badly. The demand is growing steadily from year to year. As against such ever growing demand, only about 21,000 trained professionals are passing out presently from the existing Institutions in India. Considering such a huge gap between demand and supply of trained professionals in the Tourism & Hospitality industries, there is 100% employment opportunity even before passing out from IMB School of Hospitality to fit with the current Industry expectation.
Students should be sincere and complete assigned tasks in a timely manner with good quality
Students should take ownership of their tasks. They should attend and participate in classes, labs & Industry training. They shouldn’t give excuses when it comes to studies and when it comes to achieving success in life. Students should be sincere and complete assigned tasks in a timely manner with good quality. Institutions and faculties are always focusing on identifying means to develop and implement plans to help students achieve their goals.
