Best 6 Career Options for Hotel Management Students in Nepal

Hotel Management Degree educates and trains students on in-depth hotel operation. In Nepal, education in the hotel management begins at the higher secondary level. Science, Management, and Humanities are the three programs available after secondary level (SEE) in Nepal. Hotel Management in +2 is within the management branch of hospitality management.

In this degree, students must also pass practical exams in courses, including food production, front office, food and beverage service, and housekeeping. Students must complete a few months of industrial training as part of the BHM in Nepal program.


1) How many years should students study to complete Hotel Management courses?

In Nepal, colleges offer 4-year hotel management course. During the 4th year of study, students are sent for internship in which they learn about the basic practical aspects of hospitality business. The interns can get employment opportunity at the very hotels where they have internship training or they can apply for other hotels.

2) Can I do a diploma in hotel management after SEE?

Yes, we can study diploma in hotel management after SEE. A student must receive at least a C on the Secondary Education Examination (SEE) from a recognized academic institution in mathematics, English, and science.

Some colleges in Kathmandu provide these diploma programs: A La Carte Hospitality (Diploma in Global Culinary Arts), Gateway College of Professional Studies (Diploma in Hospitality Management and Diploma in Global Culinary Arts), GATE college (Diploma in Culinary Arts and Higher Diploma in Hotel and Restaurant Management), IST college (FHS Diploma in Hotel Management).

3) What should we study ahead after Hotel Management?

After completing graduate level education, students can pursue Masters in Hospitality Management, Masters in Tourism or MBA in Hotel Management.

Most students, on the other hand, believe that further education is the quickest way to a hotel management career. However, this is not the case. Job experience is important. People with operational experience and the appropriate skill sets are sought by hotels. Hotels will not hire you into a managerial role just because you have an MBA in Hotel Management. Mid Valley Int’l College provides best MBA in Tourism in Nepal with international Master’s Degree.

4) Which is the best book for the hotel management entrance exam?

The Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) is a national entrance exam for admission to management programs by TU affiliated College throughout the country.

There are several books in market that will help prepare for CMAT entrance exam. It depends on the experiences and academic level of authors. Mid-Valley International College also runs preparation class for CMAT. The students can find a book ‘A Highly Essential Entrance Preparation Book CMAT’ by Hari Bahadur Baniya Chhettri, Sharma Milan and Bijay Ghimire, as useful one for the purpose.

5) What are my career options after my Hotel Management Degree?

Hotel Management has broad scope and is not only limited to hotel industry. Our career option is determined by the area of internship. If I did internship in kitchen then I cannot apply for a salesperson. One can be appointed to the position of captain (F&B) or supervisor based on the performance during internship. If we want to go beyond hotel industry then one can achieve position of banquet manager or event manager.
