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.
This course teaches you on how to be hospitable with your client and technicalities of hotel industry which a lay man might not know. Most of the part is practical in this course so it is fun to learn new things every week. The teachers are well qualified having good experience in this field. There are a total of 4 theory(2mid term and 2 final) exams in a year. There are 2 final practical exams for each semester. But we have practicals and assessments almost every week where we get to know how much we have learnt during the week.
The campus placements are very good. All the big 5 star hotels come to our college for recruitments. Though the starting salary is not very good but you will progress depending on your skills and experience.
The biggest fest at our college is Cornucopia generally held in the month of February where students arrange stalls preparing different food and beverages from around the world. Also there are many social activities held by the college where students can participate and express their talent.
The fee for the year has to be made in two installments i.e, one per semester. There are no such scholarships for general category students but there are some scholarships for sc, st and other category students. Loan facility is also available for students. There are no such on campus jobs.
The quality of meal is not very good but okayish. You get one veg and one nonveg preparation for your meal along with rice. Hostel is not that great as the building is really old but it is quite cheaper as compared to other rental services in that area. Dadar is really an expensive area to reside.
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.
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.
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
