The Lexicon Institute of Hotel Management has teamed up with Marriott Hotels India to provide employment-driven educational facilities to aspirants for a career in hospitality.

Having spent more than 20 years in the hospitality industry, it has become important for me personally to contribute to the ‘Making Next Generation Leader in Hospitality’, primarily with Marriott International and now as CEO of Education – The Lexicon Group of Institutes. Together with industry colleagues Gurmeet Singh, Nikhil Kapoor, Gladwin Rego and Anup Seth, we form the Governing Council of the Lexicon Institute of Hotel Management Institutes and Multifit.

The focus of the hotel school is not only to impart theoretical knowledge, but also to develop the skills of the students so that everyone can live by the principle of “believe in yourself”. In line with its vision of creating “Day Zero Professionals”, the institute’s partnership will be seen as a purposeful step towards engaging the industry, nurturing the people it will employ in the future.

Under the partnership agreement, Marriott India will own a class in the second and third years of the program, where students will receive mentoring and be given career guidance. The latter will be assisted in their projects and will be part of the problem solving teams at their hotel, understanding the problems through research and analysis. Senior leaders will assist in curriculum design, thus bridging the existing skills gaps in traditional hotel management programs.

In addition, students will enjoy input through guest lectures and faculty development programs that will keep students and faculty informed about the latest in the hotel industry. Lexicon will be supported by IHM’s Executive Leadership Program, Marriott Leadership, which will help young hospitality aspirants develop into confident hospitality professionals.

In addition, Lexicon IHM students will receive preference for internships and placements at the Marriott Hotel. All this is going to be backed up by consistent evaluation and performance grading.

The Marriott Hotel brings with them ‘Putting People First’, ‘Act with Integrity’, ‘Parsu Excellence’, ‘Embrace Change’ and ‘Serve Our World’ – some of the most valuable values ‚Äč‚Äčthat professionals in various industries can learn and take inspiration from.
