As India shows an excellent economic growth rate, the demand for a trained workforce increases. The transition is not accessible from campus to corporate. There seems to be an increasing gap in what the institutes teach and industry experts. When the corporate sector visits for campus recruitments, more often than not, they seem to get very few skilled candidates. They have a requirement that cannot be fulfilled. Integrating the learning and applying it in new and different situations is the key to a successful career. Therefore, one of the institutes’ significant challenges is getting their students at par with the industry requirements. Rapid expansion in the industry during the last decade of the twentieth century and the first decade of the new millennium translated into increased opportunities for hospitality and tourism programs graduates. Hence, the professional skills industry requirements must match the curriculum and teaching process to minimize the gap. To study the objectives, three questionnaire were designed for the population comprising of respondents from hotels, hotel management colleges and their students. The random sampling technique was used for data collection. The gap between the syllabus and the industry expectations is increasing gradually; therefore, it is necessary to act upon this and help to bridge this gap. The study has suggested methods to bridge these gap.
