Recently one of India's largest Hotel School Chain, the International Institute of Hotel Management was awarded as India's Best Education Brand 2017 by Economic Times. The quality delivery of Hospitality Education is what matters the most and there are numerous institutes in the country, training professionals to handle the requirement. However, arguably one of the best private hotel school chains in the country is IIHM which is offering training opportunities in globally recognized skill development programs, with an international degree in Hospitality Management in collaboration with University of West London, London.
International Institute of Hotel Management was founded in 1994 as a part of the IndiSmart Group which not only runs hotels of its own but also provides a vast array of services in the field of Hospitality Management Education Training and Consultancy in India and South East Asia.
IIHM is the largest Hotel School Chain in International Hospitality Management with campuses at Kolkata, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, and a state-of-the-art campus at Kasem Bundit University, Bangkok, Thailand.
In addition, because of its affiliations and tie-ups, the Indian students at any campus have the option as well as the facility to study, at different stages of their management program, at University of West London or KBU University. It has further tie-ups with universities and institutes in the USA, Australia, Mauritius, Middle East and South East Asian countries.
The institute can boast of remarkably talented alumni across the world serving some of the world's best, most celebrated and largest hotel chains. With a figure of more than 10,000 IIHM alumni, the institute has produced some of the finest human resources, who not only indulge in all types of services related to the hospitality industry, but also help make the world a better place through the creation and spread of highly technical knowledge.
With a striking vision, IIHM has painstakingly created a multicultural environment in all its campuses. Both due to the immense popularity of the institute and its various affiliations and tie-ups; students from Thailand, Armenia, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Bangladesh and many other countries consider IIHM a preferred destination for hotel management programs.
Not only students, the mentors at IIHM have also assisted in creating a multicultural environment that is quite helpful in building a global character of their students. A highly dedicated and professional team of more than 300 tutors, mentors and professors belonging to different nationalities who are experts in their chosen disciplines help students learn enthusiastically.
The learning experience also becomes unique at IIHM as teaching takes place in state-of-the-art classrooms in a real-time environment and all campuses are connected. Such multicultural educational environment helps students develop their personality as well as becomes helpful during their international or multicultural placements.
All campuses of IIHM contain food production labs, state-of-the-art food and beverage labs, housekeeping labs as well as a hi-tech IT lab connected with high-speed Internet line. Through the specialized hospitality programme, students are taught the practices and issues of the hospitality industry with regular practice in the practical labs to hone their skills. The students are also challenged intellectually through a learning environment to help them develop their analytical thinking and become responsible managers by adopting a holistic approach to solving problems in the real world.
IIHM has partnered with the George Brown College in Canada with a target of helping students develop not only technical hospitality skills, but also a career and then make a living in Canada. Looking at its impressive record of more than 10,000 graduates who have successfully established their career in some of the world's best hotel chains in Europe, USA, Canada and South East Asia, a successful institutional stint in Canada would be undoubtedly successful.
Its career-building programs are nationally ranked and internationally recognized. The international curriculum and progressive teaching methodology prepares students for domestic as well as global career challenges. Though its campuses have national as well as international presence, the education is standardized.
