Director's Message

Prof. (Dr.) Alok Sharma
Director of IITTM

It gives me immense pleasure to be a part of the Indian Institute of Tourism and Travel Management family. I take this opportunity to welcome the students coming from all parts of the country, joining the institute in Under Graduate, Post Graduate and Ph.D. programmes in the arena of Tourism education. Their teachers, seniors, and peers all form an extended family whom they can look up for any guidance, support and help to move ahead in life as professionals in the sectoral domain of tourism. It is essential that we create vibrant and enriched teaching as well as learning culture that inspires innovation and entrepreneurship. Traditional pedagogies need to be re-assessed to facilitate a more interactive and trans-disciplinary learning experience.

IITTM is India’s Premier Tourism Management School, highly renowned for its excellence in research and education. IITTM’s Doctoral programme in collaboration with Indira Gandhi National Tribal University, Amarkantak contributes to the institute’s mission by supporting the pursuit of cutting edge research in the sphere of tourism domain.

As regards faculty in IITTM, we recruit highly motivated individuals with outstanding academic background and exceptional experience. IITTM alumni have been contributing and owning high responsibilities in the country and abroad. The institute has already grown into an Institute of Excellence and has been producing outstanding professionals for the tourism industry in the country and abroad. I wish and assure my students on behalf of the IITTM family that we shall strive hard to shape their future in order to enable them to pursue their objectives of life under the valued social, cultural and economic environment and make the IITTM family proud of their attainments.
