About Creative Academy of Tourism

By 2020, 9.6% of the global GDP, 9.2% of total global employment and over 58 million jobs in India alone will come from tourism.

As a company, we have substantial experience in the tourism industry and one of the biggest pain points we come across is a lack of skilled manpower. There are many institutes and universities offering tourism courses, but we find that the quality is questionable or inconsistent. This problem of staffing is not only with us, but is something we have found with many of our colleagues in the industry.

This is where we found enormous opportunity to institutionalise our experience in tourism and help create best practises in the industry through the best possible tourism education. All our courses have been designed keeping in mind the short and long term needs of the travel & tourism industry.

The Creative Academy is spearheaded by a team of seasoned professionals with core competence in the travel & tourism education for over two decades. The depth of experience in the academic and visiting faculty helps us create the most relevant courses and also lends focus to our choice of affiliations and alliances.

Our state-of-the-art centre in Gurgaon will be the first of many centres planned across the country. With brightly lit classrooms with natural light, library and canteen facilities, we aim to make the Creative Academy a place not only to learn, but also to bond and create strong foundations and memories.

Our Commitment -
  from one parent to another....

Education is an investment, not only of time but also money. A good education leads to a great future. My family may won this venture, but we are also parents and we understand the concerns that parents have for the future of their children. The Creative Academy is a venture of love, of passion and commitment. Every student we send out in the world will be equipped with the highest levels of skills that can be imparted in Indian tourism education. That is our commitment to you, a parents or a student. To send out students who are well trained to take on the world is what we will always strive for.

This is the Creative promise.
