As I was enrolled at the college through the entrance exam the admissions process was easy and quick. Only had to submit a few documents and pay an admission fee. The college has very good infrastructure and instruments and space which is needed for hotel management is well provided. It also shares its campus with MBA And BioTech .
BHMCT stands for Bachelor in Hotel Management and Catering Technology is a 4-year course of hotel management which is similar to IHM course, IHM is a 3-year course and BHMCT is a 4-year course which allows students to choose a subject for specialization. University exams are held every semester which are moderately tough but if focused during lectures are easy. Faculty of the college is well trained and well educated with everyone having atleast 7 years of experience in the hotel industry. The technique of teaching of each faculty member is different in their own way. Sometimes it is normal that you won't understand but the teachers are always ready to solve all the queries Kitchen faculty does not speak english compared to other faculties but their knowledge about the subject and skills are very high there are about 20 faculty members
In this course, the 6th semester is especially for industrial training in which students compulsorily have to work in a hotel for 5 months and gain some experience Students can work in any establishment across the country they want. If atleast 5 people are opting for the property the college will approach the hotel and if the hotel is also willing they will conduct an interview either through Skype or if possible then in person
Many of the renowned hotels from the country and a few from abroad come for placements But compared to other colleges fewer number of people are selected College does good marketing about placement but actually, only about 60% are placed through campus interviews. The Oberoi Itc Holiday inn Jw marriot Hyatt Sheraton Are the hotels which comes for interviews
College is flexible about paying fee either in 2 or 3 installments.No special scholarship is given except sc st obc and EBC which can be availed by anyone and will have to pay only half of the fee will be paid by the govt. There is no fee hike for students who enrolled in 2017 But in the year 2018 the fee was hiked to 132000 and in the year 2019 it was 150000 As far as a student' who enrolled in 2017 is concerned there is no fee hike for them
Uniform and tool kit provides by the college but is charged separately and doesn't include in a huge amount of fee. The campus of the college is very nice and the infrastructure is also good 3 basic kitchen 1 advance kitchen 1 bakery kitchen and 1 quantity kitchen are available which is more than enough for 4 practicals being conducted at a time for 4 different classes 2 F&B restaurant for FnB practicals Housekeeping labs Amphi theatre Gym Basketball court everything is available for students Every year the college food festival is conducted with a pretty good response every year . Cultural days and other occasions are also celebrated Various seminars are conducted for students and future opportunities. Sports activities and outdoor visits are carried out. The library is available which has a good collection for hotel management students
The students are eligible after the 6th sem to apply for a job or further education. The ferns, The Oberoi, The Taj, etc have visited the organisation. Most of the students get placement. After my degree, I am planning to persue further education.
The campus interview starts from our last year that is 4th year. Many companies like Oberoi, Taj group and much other conduct our interview. Besides students can go to other hotels for interview. We also have training in our 3rd sem. There are 100% placements.
About placements - Students from the 5th and 6th semester are eligible for the campus interviews. The rate of students getting place every year is very high. The top recruiting companies of our course are Taj, Oberoi, ITC, JW Marriott and so on.
I chose this course because I wanted to explore the hotel industry. The faculty is very supportive and very educated. They all were working in good 5 star hotels 30:70. Term exams were semester wise and there was the internal assessment that helps students in knowing the pattern of semester exams. And the internal assessment marks were added to the semester. So if u didn't perform well in the semester assessment marks can save you. It's not that difficult to pass you can go through the past year papers and study.
All the reputed 5-star companies come to our college for placements such as Tah hotel, Oberoi group, four seasons, st.regis, ITC hotel, Starbucks, and many more such brands. The salary you get after is course is nearly about 16000 to 22000 per month. Generally 90%+ students get placed from the campus itself but due to covid reasons in 2020, the placements were affected.
Our college has a record of getting 100% placement every year to date. In the third year of your college, you will be eligible to sit in the placements. In the 5&6th semester, companies start to come and take interview and conduct test for the recruitment of students. Huge properties like Taj, Oberoi and many other properties come every year. And some quick service restaurant's also come for recruitment.
The students are eligible for campus placements in the last semester. Companies like Hyatt, JW, Conrad, dominos, Radisson come in to recruit the students. A minimum base salary is offered to the students by the companies based on their selection of department for specialisation. A good 80% student population are promised a good package job by the companies. It also depends on your merit scores in the past 4 years. My plan after graduating is to do my masters in sales& PR abroad.
IHM Mumbai is the oldest Hotel Management institute in India and is a prestigeous college. The faculties are also very experienced, helping and friendly. The campus is very small as compared to other colleges annd also the infrastructure is not very well maintained. The building has many cracks as it is very old. The campus is neat and clean and hygienic. This college offers one of the best placements and exposure in this field.
There was an online Join Entrance Exam for the admission i.e, NCHMCT JEE. It was a 200 question MCQ paper which was held online. It was quite easy to clear the exam, the level was not very difficult. It included aptitude, situation based questions, grammar, vocabulary, basic maths and calculations, current affairs and general knowledge.
Since you didn't get the hostel in the first year so the expenses for living will be very high as sky touching. The pg will take upto 13000per month for six sharing plus deposits and other charges. So i suggest you to take flat in sharing. Also for the night you have to arrange your dinner from yourself and morning breakfast also. Because college is going to provide you only the lunch
