As we open our gateway to “Sattvik Centre of Excellence with IHM, Bhubaneshwar”, the student community can not only pursue courses in specialised vegetarian programmes in hospitality or management through IHM, but also secure a good job in the same. There is constant endeavour to improve academic administration and curriculum upgradation through involvement of subject-matter specialist from both bodies.”
“This was an important step that was needed as vegetarians have to take a step back from the bigger businesses in the world, and it is a drawback. Even though I respect all food choices, we cannot disregard courses in Vegetarian management or auditor. We are facing a huge unemployability after pandemic it has increased, now the students will able to earn a dispensable income after the competition of the course,” Satyanarayan Mohapatra said.
