There is a particular profile that we're looking for in associates, certain career attributes that we want them to have," says Mohit Nirula, Dean of OCLD. While this year's admission process for STEP has already been completed, the recruitment process for the post- graduate programme is set to begin in September.
That's fairly simple." Just like the educational background of a future manager, OCLD is also not particular about the number of associates it will train per year.
About 90 per cent of The Oberoi Group's General Managers are OCLD pass- outs, while 30 per cent of OCLD's intake come from the STEP programme.
Nirula and the entire faculty at the centre are either from OCLD or have previously worked as managers in the Oberoi Group of Hotels.
