Hilton ties up with Indian university

Hilton Worldwide and Christ University’s Department of Hotel Management, Bangalore, have signed an agreement to groom talent for the country’s rapidly growing hospitality industry. Under the Hilton Class programme, Hilton Worldwide will offer students from Christ University rigorous on-the-job practical training and a theoretical curriculum designed to equip them for successful careers in hospitality.

“The introduction of the Hilton Class programme reiterates our commitment to developing our portfolio in India. Besides providing Hilton Worldwide with access to best-in-class talent to support our expansion, we believe this initiative will also benefit the industry as more trained students enter the workplace,” said Martin Rinck, President – Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide.

Under the partnership, every year, 15 first-year students will be selected for the Hilton Class programme by Hilton Worldwide and Christ University. Each student will be offered a 24-week internship at hotels and resorts operated by the leading global hospitality company through the four-year Bachelor in Hotel Management (BHM) course at Christ University. In addition, Hilton Worldwide will organise guest lectures, on-site visits and e-learning programmes specially designed to prepare students for the workplace. Upon graduation, outstanding students would also be able to secure job offers from properties operated by Hilton Worldwide.
