Good aspects of the college are: 1. The campus is located in a very good area in Dadar locality of South Mumbai. 2. The faculties are very experienced and helpful. 3. The college holds its rank in the top 3 all over India. Bad aspects are of the college are: 1. The campus size is really very small. 2. There are rarely any sports facilities inside the campus because of its size. 3. The college timings are too long i.e. from 9 am to 5 pm. 4. The food in the mess is not that great in comparison to what you would expect in a hotel management college. The admission process is easy. You just have to give the entrance exam and on the basis of rank and quota, you get to the college. I chose this college over others because it is a reputed college and students get to explore more opportunities in the hospitality industry when they pass out from a good college.
I chose this course because I was interested in cooking and I loved it. Also, we get to learn about the management part of a hotel and everything about a hotel in this course. The class size is generally near 65 to 70 per class and there is one teacher alloted per subject for teaching. The classes are huge in size. The faculties are mostly from a hotel management background and faculties teaching accounts and finance are from a finance background. Faculties are very experienced as they have worked in the hotel industry earlier. There are a total of 4 exams round the year. 2 exams per semester. If you study good and can remember concepts then exams are easy to pass.
All the 5-star hotel is open for internships in all the four departments. I got placed at Oberoi Gurgaon for a 3-month internship where I got to learn a lot. I gained practical knowledge from there but due to covid the working of the hotel was not normal and had many restrictions.
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.
IHM Mumbai comes under a class city and so the fees of this college are a bit higher as compared to other IHM colleges in India in other cities. The fees are around 135000 to 145000. This amount is excluding the hostel fee. You get hostel only after completion of 1st Year that too on criteria basis. Students can take a loan from banks as financial assistance. There are scholarships for people having quotas but no scholarships for general category students.
Every year in March we have a food fest named Cornucopia which is the biggest fest in our college. It is basically a food fest where students prepare food from different region and cuisines and sell them on the stalls. It is generally a 2-3 day fest. There are many books available in the library but you cannot just go anytime and sit and read. Each section has alloted day and time in the weekly schedule. There are no such sports activities on regular basis but once a year. We have a sports competition in 4-5 sports.
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.
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
