Nitte Education Trust through its constituent institution, Sarosh Institute of Hotel Administration (SIHA) has been providing quality hotel management education, since 1992. Our alumni who hold key positions as Director - Sales & Marketing, Director - Operations, F&B Managers, Restaurateurs, Inflight Managers, Concierge Managers, Catering & Logistics Officers, Chefs, Professors, Training & Placement Officers etc., are testimony of the personal & professional skills and industry-oriented competencies they were groomed in, at the institution.
In recent years, prospects for students of the traditional hotel management training programs have expanded. There is a realization that the competencies of hospitality, services management, interpersonal skills and communication skills are relevant for careers beyond the traditional “hotel management” sphere. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the hospitality industry and therefore there is a need for revisiting and restructuring educational programs for training hospitality professionals. Further, the new National Education Policy of 2020 emphasises the need for a more holistic, industry relevant training.
Keeping these developments in mind, the Bachelors in Hotel Management (BHM) program being offered at SIHA is being replaced by a new four-year BSc (Honors) in Hospitality Management program at the newly established Nitte Institute of Hospitality Services (NIHS) under Nitte (Deemed to be University). This program with an innovative curriculum will offer training in skills relevant for a broader range of hospitality services with greater academic flexibility for students.
