Whether you are going to study the undergraduate and graduate programs in tourism and hospitality or you have decided to pursue your further studies at Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hotel Management (NATHM), I want to congratulate you on your decision to pursue a degree in Tourism and Hospitality. By choosing Tourism and Hospitality as your area of higher studies, you have chosen the area offering you not only the opportunities inside national border but also countless prospects across the globe.
Tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. The number of international travelers is expected to grow to 1.8 billion by 2030. According to World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), one in ten jobs is created by tourism industry.
With an experience of almost half century, NATHM has become the first choice for the students like you. NATHM is proud to have produced more than 50 thousand human resources, of whom 95% are employed or have established themselves as entrepreneurs, and have created their own image in the national and global tourism industry. From this year NATHM has expanded itself to three provinces Birtamod of Province number One, Bardibas of Province Two and Nepalgunj of Lumbini Province. Through this expansion, the aspiring students will benefit the quality courses offered by NATHM.
NATHM has been and will continue to be a ‘Centre of Excellence’ to groom the trainees and students with the expertise and professional culture so that they can have distinct skill, knowledge and attitude.
Very soon, NATHM will have a fully functional training hotel, first of its kind in Nepal, which certainly will add strength to our already existing academic quality. NATHM, at the same time is strengthening its national and international network to bring in innovations in the industry and open innumerable opportunities for its graduates.
Finally, I express my best wishes to all the aspiring students contemplating to be a part of NATHM. Our team of qualified instructors and administrators is here to make your time at NATHM fruitful.
