Through it students got an opportunity to learn two important skills, that of both Bar-Tending & Flair-tending.” She further added: “In fact, keeping in mind the demands of current & future hospitality sector; we always want to ascertain overall development of our students. Thus, making them go for novel globalized trends and traditions, towards their relevant study programmes, we yearn to see them easily and preferably employed throughout the world.”
