V. M. Salgaocar Institute

The Covid-19 pandemic, the subsequent global lockdown and its impact on the economy is something the world hasn’t been prepared for. There are no doubts that there is a major challenge ahead of us across industries, with the hospitality industry being no exception.

The revival of the industry is certain. However the new normal will include greater use of technology, contactless processes and innovation in the sector.

Companies therefore have to adapt to the changes and need a skilled, motivated and technologically-savvy work-force who can match up to the needs of the changing industry.

The need for a world-class institute in India which meets this criteria, has never been stronger. Trained professionals will have a clear advantage over untrained graduates.
