What made us relevant in the past, does not hold true today, so it’s all about how agile, adaptive and resilient we can be to prepare ourselves for future challenges.
“Any crisis brings a lot of opportunities, and we need to reinvent and realign ourselves to suit the industry needs and demands.

Addressing the gathering, Rajan Bahadur, CEO, Tourism & Hospitality Skill Council (THSC), stated, “Amity is not only an educational institution but is also a socially responsible organization which believes in giving back to the society.
“Vocational Education consists of practical courses and Vocational Education and Training is an important element of employment generation and sustainability. This partnership with Amity will elevate skilling not only in India but also overseas and will produce highly skilled professionals as per the industry standards, imperative for competitive growth.
“Through this MoU, students will be trained in the field of Tourism, Travel, Hospitality and Aviation by different Campuses of Amity University through the various programs specified, under this MoU.”
Dr Ashok K. Chauhan, Founder President, Amity Education Group, stated, “Through the Signing of this MoU, we are certain to contribute to nation building by developing the skills of our students.

The Signing of this MoU is a testimony to our commitment of making our students industry ready so that they contribute to the development of our country.”
Highlighting the significance of the signing of MoU, Prof (Dr.) Balvinder Shukla, Vice Chancellor, Amity University, Uttar Pradesh, added, “The Pandemic has changed the scenario of the Travel and Hospitality industry in India. The use and development of technology, as in the case of all industries, has changed the face of hospitality and tourism industry in India. Businesses have been impacted but the spirit has remained intact.
“We, at Amity, firmly believe that if our activities do not contribute to the society, industry and nation, we have not achieved anything, therefore, activities must be outcome-based. In line with the vision of our honourable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, skill development is our top most priority and we have to see how we can nurture and provide the right talent to industries.”
