IIHM – Best Hotel Management College in Kolkata
MESSAGE FROM DIRECTOR DESK – KOLKATA
IIHM has completed 27 years of existence and as I sit back and reflect on the last three decades, the first thought that strikes me is ‘How time flies!’
These three decades have undoubtedly been wonderful and satisfying for me as Director of the Kolkata campus of this prestigious institution. Established on a solid foundation of truth, honesty, dedication and innovation, IIHM was built to lead in the field of hospitality management training and education, buffered by a passion to create global leaders in hospitality. Today the institution is one of the largest Hotel School chains in India and abroad with campuses in Kolkata, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Goa, Bangkok and Samarkand in Uzbekistan. IIHM provides an array of choices to students who want to study hospitality management with AICTE approved national level certifications and highly acclaimed International degree programmes.
Although conducted in different geographical locations, the course curriculum is supervised through regular review and validation by University of West London, UK, the British Higher Education Quality Assurance body QAA and by the National Academic Review and Approval Systems activated through the AICTE. The courses are designed to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills required by hoteliers of the 21st century. Beside creating managers for the hotel industry, IIHM has also created opportunities for students to study, do internships and be employed in international hospitality brands. IIHM today runs world class infrastructure comparable to top hotel schools around the world. Our faculty have extensive industry experience and take professional development programmes to keep themselves up to date.
At IIHM we realize that knowledge and personal development come from stepping out of our comfort zone. Boundaries only limit possible discoveries and new understanding, thus, while we tenderly nurture young students through individual attention, care and inspirational counselling, on the other hand we create realistic platforms for students to experiment their acquired knowledge and skills. Perhaps this is the reason why IIHM students bag enviable management training programmes and stand apart in their jobs. I would also like to mention that behind the success of the institution is the core value of service to the community, the people and the society at large. This value is strongly ingrained in the students from the time they take admission. All students are encouraged to take part in charitable activities by IIHM that extend beyond the four walls of the classroom.
