Hi kooky,
I had done my engineering in 2010, but was never into making my career in this field. One should always do things that he/she enjoys.....rather than what the society says. So if you are interested in hospitality then you should go ahead with this course. I had done a course in event management and public relation from this very institute that I have mentioned above and I can certainly vouch for them that they deliver what they say.
