Career Switch from Hotel Management to Risk Management

Hotel Management to Risk Management

Spandan Banerjee, PGDRM Jan’22-23

Hi, I am Spandan Banerjee and I am an ex hotelier. The decision to pursue further studies and branch out of the hotel industry came after the pandemic hit us and I eventually was left with no other choice due to the deterioration that the industry and my career went through.

Initially, a generic MBA/one-year MBA programs was what I was aiming at, however, upon further research and the desire to be different from the herd, I came across Global Risk Management Institute where i chanced upon their curriculum and realized that risk management careers in the near future will be a game-changer and I would want to be a part of that growth story when it occurs.

Our world, now more than ever is volatile and uncertain. And with uncertainty comes the certainty of risk and an intelligent task force that could act as the think tank for companies to carve out paths around various risk facets, is the need of the hour.

Although I was doubtful about adjusting to the curriculum especially because I was from the hospitality industry which is completely unrelated to risk management as a field, the institute eliminated all my worries with the bridge programme, a one-month programme with basics of business being taught to get everyone on the same level, to begin with. All in all the journey till now has been great and worthwhile and I am confident of a fulfilling remainder year at GRMI and hopeful about my career in risk management.
