Every aspect of my job is something which IHMA has inculcated in me through its course structure! It is well balanced with hands on experience on the various job roles of a hotelier and at the same time academically well planned - this allows you to express yourself and be well informed of the decision you make.
IHM-A was the best thing that happened to me. It was the wisest decision on my part to be a part of the finest institution of the country. I must say I had the most wonderful time learning and evolving under great mentors like Mr. Rushad Kavina, Mr. Rakesh Katyayani, Chef Samir Mulaokar, Mr. Arun Sharma, Mr. Saurabh Krishna and all the other faculty. I’m grateful to each one of them for shaping me and giving me the wings to fly.
IHM Aurangabad gave me a rewarding experience to learn about the hospitality industry at grass root levels. The institute has been vital in helping me create a strong foundation and understanding of hotel operations and guest service management. The modules at IHM-A were designed keeping in vision a practical exposure of hotel operations and hospitality verticals. After graduation, I had the opportunity to work with Radisson Hotels as Guest Service Management Trainee and The Leela, Mumbai as Corporate Sales Executive. I currently work as a Sales Manager at my Family Business set-up in suburban Mumbai.
IHM-A is a college which made students from simple to stylish, shy to confident and emotional to wise. IHM-A taught me everything, from table service to holding a round table discussion. I think the best and my most cherished memory of college would be working on a project for the Indian Merchant Chambers & MTDC with Dr. Satish and Mr. Jamal from IHCL. The opportunity not only gave us a lot of insight on the industry, it also helped us interact with industry leaders and build valuable contacts for the years to come.
I currently am working at The Good Wife in BKC, Mumbai as a Restaurant Manager. I Love IHM-A. I am where i am only and only because of my faculty and University. I started off my Internship in Revenue Management with the Taj at the Corporate Office in Mumbai. I currently am working with Pebble Street at The Good wife as a Restaurant Manager. I personally believe the education i received at IHM-A is top notch. I really am grateful that I had amazing faculty like Mr. Arun Kumar Sharma, Mr. Gautam Sen, Mr. Saurabh Krishna, Mrs. Meena Sinha, Chef Samir Mulaokar, Mr. Rakesh Katyayani and Mr. Rushad Kavina who constantly supported me and taught me. This is my journey post IHM-A in a nutshell.
