MESSAGE FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
NATHM has certainly grown to a higher level with its recently started Master of Hospitality Management (MHM) in affiliation with Tribhuvan University in its thirty eight years of glorious history of inception. Adding this new feather in its hat, it has turned itself into a pool of academic and vocational trainings that comprises Bachelor’s in Hotel Management (BHM), Bachelor’s in Travel and Tourism Management (BTTM) and a range of supervisory and crash courses on front office, housekeeping, food preparation, tour guide, trekking guide and so on. The trust with which TU bestowed upon us the great responsibilities of producing academic disciples has been the result of continuous engagement of NATHM in establishing itself as a centre of excellence in South Asia; excellence at par with meeting the growing demand of qualified middle and higher level supervisors and managers of the hospitality industry nationally and internationally. Moreover, NATHM’s agreement with International College of Hotel Management (ICHM) in Australia has provided our students with an opportunity not only to transfer all the credits earned at NATHM to ICHM but also continue their fourth semester in Australia.
The amalgamation of excellent resources for conducting indoor and outdoor classroom activities including splendid kitchens and dining halls, practice hotel rooms, practice bar and lounge along with fully and technically equipped library and sports facilities have created conducive environment for effective learning and teaching for students and faculty as well who come with diverse and experienced background in their own sectors. In addition, a practice hotel is being constructed for the students at NATHM’s premise which will provide hands-on real life experiences to its students.
NATHM’s journey to success at this level has been possible only with the support and cooperation of its various stakeholders and partner organizations and associations such as NTB, HAAN, TAAN, NATTA and International Hotel and Restaurant Association of which NATHM is a member as well. On the one hand I extend my heartfelt thanks to all our well-wishers and supporters and on the other hand we promise to strive for the best to guarantee optimum satisfaction to all our valued stakeholders.
