Lexicon Institute of Hotel Management is the first of its kind hotel school, ‘By The Hoteliers, For The Hoteliers’. From the curation of the curriculum to the design of the infrastructure, Lexicon IHM is the result of eminent industry leaders coming together to nurture future hospitality leaders. At Lexicon IHM, the focus is on providing a comprehensive hospitality education that goes beyond just textbook knowledge. The institute aims to create a learning environment that simulates real-world situations and enables students to develop the skills and competencies required to excel in the industry.
Lexicon IHM gladly announces entering into an MOU with Hyatt Hotels Corporation, a prominent worldwide hospitality corporation with 26 distinctive brands and more than 1,100 sites throughout the world, with the goal of offering a full hospitality education. It is an element of a novel effort by Lexicon IHM to forge a strong partnership between the sector and hospitality education. A comprehensive ecosystem for aspiring hospitality professionals has been developed by Lexicon IHM in partnership with a renowned hospitality chain like Hyatt Hotels Corporation. Hyatt Hotels Corporation is a world-renowned hospitality company with a long-standing reputation for providing exceptional service to its guests. This partnership presents an excellent opportunity for students at Lexicon Institute to gain valuable industry experience and knowledge from a global leader in the hospitality industry.
“As a leading hospitality corporation, we recognize the importance of supporting the development of a skilled workforce in the industry. This partnership between Lexicon Institute of Hotel Management and Hyatt Hotels Corporation is a significant step towards achieving that goal. By working together, we can provide students with hands-on experience and exposure to contemporary industry practices, preparing them for long-term success in their careers. We are excited to share our expertise and knowledge with the students and believe that this collaboration will not only benefit the students but also contribute to the growth and sustainability of the hospitality industry in India and beyond.”, says Arif Khan, Regional VP of Human Resources – India & Southwest Asia, Hyatt India Consultancy.
A unique feature of this collaboration is the launch of India’s First Hyatt Classroom at the Lexicon IHM. Here, students will learn from the experiences of Hyatt industry experts, who will conduct Guest Lectures and Master Classes to share valuable insights and introduce them to contemporary industry practices. Further, the students will be assisted in projects where they can gain exposure to real-life hotel challenges. This will open internship and placement opportunities for the students to be exposed to a practical working environment.
The focus of this relationship is also to introduce future hospitality leaders to Hyatt as a brand and understand the Hyatt Brand Ethos and Core Values. A “Brand Advocate,” appointed by Lexicon IHM, will collaborate with the Hyatt India team to project and inculcate an awareness of the different brands that fall within the Hyatt umbrella and culture.
“For the first time, Hyatt Hotels Corporation known for its exceptional service and customer experience, has partnered with a hotel school – Lexicon IHM, reflecting the company’s commitment to providing authentic hospitality education. This collaboration extends our efforts to bridge the gap between industry and academics in order to create a healthy and sustainable environment for aspiring hoteliers.
