"These are dynamic times and we are witnessing tumultuous changes. To be ahead of others, hospitality professionals need to be forward thinking, innovative, open to adopting new technologies and strategically inclined to address a wide range of customer expectations. The Hospitality Management Program (HMP) prepares managers to combine innovation and execution for a sustainable competitive edge. Our participants take their learning and adapt them to real venture environment and gain from actual execution," said Kannan Vijayaraghavan, CEO and Director of Sathguru Management Consultants while announcing the eighth Hospitality Management Program (HMP) to be jointly delivered by Sathguru Management Consultants and Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration, the world's leading hospitality management school. This year the HMP will run from 18 to 22 June in Hyderabad.
With a significant rise in the number of tourists and travelers and a changing, volatile market, it has become imperative for hospitality ventures across the world to gird themselves with a deeper understanding of new and emerging market trends, innovative services and changing customer preferences to remain profitable and stay ahead of their competitors. HMP is known to attract the participation of general managers, functional heads, strategic planners, revenue management professionals and other functional specialists to converge and undergo collective learning through a unique experiential learning process that Cornell-Sathguru delivers. HMP participants come from a wide range of Asian countries and other emerging markets. Participants to the program thus have the opportunity to learn from the leading professionals and academics specializing in the hospitality sector and also interact with their peers from other brands and nations.
