Ever wondered how it would be to work with a wide number of people, discover new cultures and languages on a daily basis? If yes, then a career in travel and tourism is your calling.

With abundant natural resources and diverse culture, Nepal is a flourishing tourism destination and career prospects in the field are ever growing. Different institutes offer different courses, ranging from trainings, short courses to well- established academic programmes. Courses like the Bachelor’s in Travel and Tourism Management (BTTM), Bachelor’s in Hotel Management (BHM), Master in Hotel Management (MHM) and Master in Travel and Tourism Management (MTTM) equip you with theoretical and practical knowledge of hospitality and the tourism sector.

Silver Mountain School of Hotel Management offers world recognised education at affordable prices to students, where they not only get job opportunities but also develop strong entrepreneurship skills for career prospects.

Citing that NCTTM is a pioneer institute in the field of tourism management studies in the country, Sushant Marasini, Coordinator at NCTTM said, "We aim to be the premier institution in the travel and tourism education sector of Nepal in imparting world-class education, providing the industry with quantitative, competent and professional graduates and a promise to build a global career for the younger generation of Nepalis as well as students from neighbouring countries in the rapidly emerging global travel and tourism sector ."

NCTTM is the first college in Nepal to run a travel agency where students can gain information regarding travel and tourism management and can do their internship abroad. Besides providing theoretical knowledge, the college has opened up a Global Distribution System (GDS) lab inside the college offering practical knowledge to students.

The charm of Chartered Accountancy


Chartered Accountancy, a highly prestigious and globally acclaimed career option could be your option too

With merely a decade-long history in Nepal, Chartered Accountancy (CA) has become one of the most preferred subjects for students these days. Instead of a university, the CA programme is entirely regulated by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of a country. Thus the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nepal (ICAN), established in 1997, has been regulating the programme here since its introduction in 2000. At present there are roughly less than 1,000 Chartered Accountants (CAs) registered at ICAN both from Nepal and India. Going by the statistics, this can be considered as tremendous growth as compared to a decade ago. However, this growth too is not sufficient to meet the demand in Nepal and the world at large.

“The unique and enormous career prospects that CA enjoys has created a buzz among people and the figure will certainly rise,” states Naba Raj Burlakoti, Founder and Chairperson of Prime Chartered Academy who considers business transactions stretching worldwide is increasing the demand for more CAs. He also points out to how people are attracted to the CA profession because of the phenomenal career options it has in trade, industry and commerce. “The prospects laid down by this career path does not limit itself to trade and business,” he states, trying to clarify the flexibility that it offers to work in varied sectors from manufacturing companies, government offices, public services to banking and financial institutions besides starting CAs their own private practice.

According to Burlakoti, the four years and three months long CA course demands a lot of dedication and hard work from students. CA is that one course that also comes with low education cost. “Nevertheless it is considered a prestigious and rewarding profession,” he says. “Students who complete their course in India and willing to practice in Nepal must go through a year’s training at a Nepali Institute and should pass the exams on Law and Tax conducted by ICAN,” informs Burlakoti.

“The CA course is in high demand and various CA institutes have been established resulting in a considerable slowdown in the number of students going to study in India,” says Deepesh K Thapaliya MD of CCMA College. According to him, CA course is the combination of theoretical, practical, technical and more learning of accountancy, taxation, auditing and overall management of business transactions. The course is divided into three levels; CAP-I, CAP-II and CAP-III. The duration for the first two levels is six and nine months respectively, whereas the final level is three years long which includes practical training too. “Talking about the most appealing aspect of CAs besides their job, is the ability they have towards making decisions and the tact they display in enhancing profits for the company,” he shares.

The CA course does not put any barrier to entry of students in terms of their performance at the plus two or the faculty they come from. This, according to Burlakoti, should not discourage anyone from the management background because every subject included in this course is taught from the foundation level.

• Course duration: 4 years 3 months (almost five years)
• Fee structure: Rs 200,000 to Rs 300,000 (depending on institute)
• Scholarships: Most of the institutes in Nepal provide certain amount of scholarship depending on the students’ performance in plus two and during the course
• Eligibility criteria: Plus two and A-Level or equivalent from recognised educational institution
• Examination session: June and December
