IHM-A gave me some of the best years of my life. From making new friends, learning everything I know about food and cooking, to spending time in the biggest and best library (on food books) in India, it taught me so much about the industry in which I am today. It taught me the basics, gave me opportunities, pushed me, challenged me, yet nurtured me with the guidance. I always do Thank IHM-A and all my professors for everything I am today. It is an integral part of my learning and I cherish everyday spent there.
A transformational experience that helped me learn critical thinking, practical analysis and the value of hard work early on. The faculty are closely involved and customise their guidance and mentoring to each person, and am glad to say still in touch with their students so many years later!
Time spent at IHM-A gave me a strong professional & personal foundation that shall always be the base of my growth. All credit to the faculty & team that inculcated learnings and values in me. Most memorable three years of my education!
I enrolled into B.A ( Hons.) In Culinary Arts Programme due to my Passion and Interests in the Field , IHM -A Made sure that I had enmassed enough potential to compete and excel in the competetive world , It was a 360 degree exposure and learning which has equal measures of both on the job training and Theory which always kept me at par in the industry.
Academically, the course was structured and designed in an effective, efficient and engaging manner . This was in turn delivered by faculty of the highest quality which made it easier for the student to comprehend and understand what was being taught. This was important, but not my biggest takeaway from the three years spent there.
My biggest takeaway was the life lessons that IHM -A teaches you – lessons that one uses till now. It prepares you for the world to come, It prepares you to embark on that journey called life. It was the best thing that could happen to a 18 year old out of school – the amalgamation of knowledge, skills and behaviours that one picks up from there is something I still use till date.
IHM-A, without a shadow of doubt has made me what I am today.
B.A. (Hons.) Hospitality Management
From classroom learning to industry exposure, IHM – A helped me evolve into becoming the strong confident woman that I am today. It challenged us on so many subjects and developed our critical thinking abilities like I never imagined before. The faculty’s guidance and the resources available at the institue were absolutely unparallel to any. I have been in the hospitality industry for almost 8 years now, having started my career as a Marriott Voyager, working for them at different properties in India for almost 6 years and now continuing it here in San Francisco. I am very thankful to my IHM-A family for giving me such a memorable experience that I will cherish forever.
“Before joining college, I was a shy kid for whom cooking was only a hobby. IHM – A not only broadened my horizons to have a global career but also trained and polished me to become a focused and confident chef.”
