This gave me a spirit to explore the world and enhance my knowledge as well as empower managerial skills and abilities to grow as a successful hotelier. I choose SHG Lyon because it provides a diverse culture, quality education and extra curricular activities to the students which helps to chase their dreams and achieve it. The social life in SHG is really overwhelming, a personal kind of friendly feel and courteous people and I felt like a second home. I prefer SHG for their professional faculty who has a great knowledge about the courses and helping students to understand each and every subject in detail, also helps to the students doubts by giving a clear picture to them in the class or even through messages or emails very quickly. The case studies and exams in the school gives a broader eye view and great impact to understand the overview and great insight. 


INTERNSHIP  

I did my internship in Marriott Brussels Grand Place, Belgium.The internship provided by SHG is a glorious opportunity to me because it is an on-site exposure in a multi-national company which helps you to gain professional real time experience. Marriott international is a largest chain group in the world with more than 6000+ hotels in 130+ countries and also a global brand in producing the finest professionals. I feel like really blessed and blissed to be a part of this brand at least for a particular period. In this internship, I have gained vast knowledge and performing skills in guest relations and delivering consistent professional services to the guests of the hotel by exceptional facilities  and guest preferences during their stay, also satisfying the guest stay up to the core by giving my best as knowing the real need of the guest, properly utilising the resources, proving the brand loyalty as well as mine to the guest and taking a positive feedback for the repeat business. All the skills that I acquire in this internship is inevitable and took me to the next level in my career. I would like to specially thank SHG for this wonderful opportunity to prove myself and to seek an impeccable professional background which leads to a successful career.
