Q4. What are the specializations Shoolini provide in HM course?
Shoolini’s Hospitality School does not provide specialization in its 3-year graduation B.Sc. Program as the objective is to prepare a “Jack of all Hospitality Operations”. After graduation, when the student starts his working life, it is then that his mind realistically settles onto a particular Area of Specialisation, where he wants to be the master of one interest.
Shoolini’s goal is to create a “ready professional for the industry as well as hospitality fraternity”, who will be able to adapt & mould himself as per the organization’s requirement where he is being selected. Success & acceptability of such a student lies in his ability to integrate with the organization’s needs, something Shoolini prepares every student for.

Q. What about placements?
Apart from providing indepth academic knowledge, our endeavour is to enable students for the jobs of the future. All efforts are made to prepare students for placements in their graduating year, which includes helping with their resume, and conducting mock interviews and group discussions. The university also invites several leading companies every year for a successful placements drive. However, placements are largely dependant on the graduating student's performance on the day of placement as they come with face-to-face with prospective companies by way of group discussions & personal interviews. Here, it is the student's ability to express his knowledge and impress the company, which will win him the placement.
