Is mahatma gandhi university tourism managment is good for campus placements??

Chetna Guglani 17th Aug, 2019
Hey aspirant!
Mahatma Gandhi University has been graded 'A' by NAAC so it's a good University to study in.
Their programme is designed in such a way that you'll get an understanding of components of tourism industry, acquire practical knowledge in all the areas included and will also develop entrepreneurial skills. In the other words, it will bridge the gap of availability of trained manpower for tourism industry by training you that way.
They ensure very effective placement, they have placement cell for the same that will assist you through out. They also provide intership with duration of 2 months called tourism services internship (TSI) during the final semester to get you ready for jobs. One month training will also be provided after the end of first semester.

Hope this helps,
Best of luck!
