Education beyond Curriculum!

SAI is known for educating students beyond curriculum. We have created a beautiful educative environment such that our students naturally tend to develop their creativity, work ethics, management and leadership skills all of which are integral parts for a successful career. We also give them the needed ground to face and tackle challenges by probing, discussing and working close with peers to achieve a better understanding.

Students at SAI will not only learn about Hotel Management, Carving, Service Skills and Kitchen Operations, but also get specialized in Finance & Accounting, Marketing and Sales. As a part of their course, we have also included Tourism Product Knowledge.
