Priyanka SwarupAs a toddler I entered Sacred Heart Convent School, Jamshedpur in 1989 in L.K.G. and after 14 years passed my 10th in 2001 and 12th in 2003 from the commerce stream. While at school, I was the President of the Duke of Edinburgh club and I also had the privilege to be one among the sixteen to represent India in ‘Duke of Edinburgh’ after passing the Gold Level in 11th standard.

After passing out from the school, I opted for Hospitality Management as my career option. In order to excel in the chosen field, I joined International Institute of Hotel management in Kolkata. After finishing Diploma in Hotel and Catering Management, I got selected to go to Edinburgh (Scotland) to finish my Degree in International Hospitality Management. While studying, I got an employment offer from Holiday Inn, Edinburgh (North) in Front Office department. With time, I moved on to do MBA in International Hospitality Management from IMI, Switzerland. Now after finishing my MBA with a Gold Medal and Distinction and exploring a few places, I have returned back to Edinburgh as my new employer, Malmaison, offered me much better position and career prospective.

I plan to keep doing all good I can and hope to climb up the career ladder at a brisk pace.
