Aissms college of catering technology and hotel management is a perfect place to learn about the hotel etiquettes and the academic education that they provide. They offer a huge amount of options of subjects to choose from and also provide you with abroad/domestic industrial training in the 5th semester. Overall an excellent college. Cons about the college can be that they can do better in the selection of students for the admission. Instead of choosing through quota seats, they can give preferences to open category students who excel with their merit. This way the quality of education also improves and they stand a chance to make their college's public image a whole lot better. Otherwise, they pose an excellent teaching staff and ace with their teaching facilities.
I chose this course because I had the instinct and a major interest in doing hotel management since I was in school. The faculty: student ratio is quite impressive as the faculty can easily figure out who is passionate and who isn't. They personally help and train the potential students and help to improve the weak student's skills and knowledge. Overall they take extraordinary efforts in teaching the entire class. Several presentations, out of textbook theories, various skills which come handy on hands while working day today in the industry, communication skills, presentation skills etc. Most of the faculty is from the alumni group and hence know the college academic status word to word. The term exams happen as per the fixed schedule which the uni releases. Even if students can't score well, additional assignments and mock tests are given to the students to improve their scores Of the textbook, the portion is never included in the exam syllabus.
Several places like Dubai, America, Mauritius, Maldives, France and India have certain hotel organisations that have a tie-up with the college to recruit students for the industrial training. A 3-4 step interview has to be attempted by the students to be recruited.
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.
The fee structure is affordable for all categories. The fee structure is broken down for the theory and practical academics and the additional infrastructure fees & essential needs etc. A government scholarship is provided by the uni to the students who are from certain categories of the cast. They can continue availing the scholarship on the word that their overall scores of every academic year are promising. The overall course can cost you 8-10 lakhs. The 5th semester industrial training promises you a stipend provided on the fact of the place where you working at. Initially, you pay a cost for the internship but that is covered and redeemed by the offered stipend that is given to you by the end of the training. It's a 5-6 months training which can happen either abroad or domestic. This industrial training is only offered for the bhmct course and not the BSc course. After the industrial training, the students are to choose their speciality subject and graduate with it.
An annual fest is conducted in the month of January called Athitya.

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.

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
