ESSEC Business School, in collaboration with The Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), has created a new scholarship specifically for the MSc in Hospitality Management (IMHI) program.
In an ever-changing and ever more complex world, ESSEC seeks to offer a wide range of outstanding programs for students at all stages of learning, regardless of their financial situation. As such, ESSEC, in partnership with The Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), South Asia’s largest hospitality company, has created a new scholarship. This new scholarship will be awarded annually to two deserving IHCL employees and the recipients will be sponsored for a 21-month long, fully paid MSc in Hospitality Management at ESSEC.
According to Professor Peter O’Connor, Academic Director of the ESSEC MSc in Hospitality Management (IMHI), “Since its creation, Indian participants have always been an important component of Essec’s hospitality management programs. Their different perspectives and experiences are appreciated by both professors and other participants alike, and they are consistently amongst the top performers in each class. Thus we are delighted to collaborate with The Indian Hotels (IHCL), one of the most prestigious Indian hotel companies to help both enhance our student body and help develop their future talent. We look forward to a brilliant partnership aligned with ESSEC’s mission to respond to the challenges of the future.”
Puneet Chhatwal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of IHCL also added, “We have always believed in creating a strong talent pipeline by enabling and empowering our employees with the best of learning and development initiatives. Our collaboration with ESSEC Business School is a vital step in that direction and in line with our vision to create future leaders for the global hospitality industry in general and build a talent pipeline for IHCL in particular.”
The IMHI is recognized worldwide as Europe’s leading hospitality management program and prepares future managers for high-level operational responsibilities in all tourism and hospitality sectors. The program is a mix of rigorous academics and hands-on field experience which includes various areas such as e-commerce, real estate and development, entrepreneurship and luxury services management. Besides the full tuition fees, IHCL would also cover the accommodation and living expenses for the two selected employees.
