Hotel schools, business schools and liberal arts programs produce thousands of graduates each year with all sorts of skillsets.

Hotel school students are taught from day one that their career will be to serve their guests, their employees, their employers, and their other stakeholders. Most business school graduates go into services such as banking, accounting, sales, marketing and law, but they are often not even aware that serving others is what their jobs are all about. Hotel school students do not reject service - they embrace it.

Question is whether you think that hospitality schools and universities still deliver talent with the sorts of competencies and skills you are looking for today, or whether graduates from generic business schools stand an equal chance during the hiring process.
