    Thanks for the above information pertaining to best top ranking hotel management colleges , in this regards we have left out one more important university located in Uttarakhand which plays a significant role in shaping up the career of the students. Quantum University Roorkee is a great hub to study hotel management courses and many more other undergraduate and post graduate courses university offers Bachelors in hotel management and short term certificate courses at a very affordable fees. The best part is interdisciplinary education where students can study majors along with minors without paying extra.
