The world of food and beverage is not only exciting but extremely competitive as well. One must be prepared to persevere, learn and stay ahead of the game to succeed. The hospitality management course at Institute of Advanced Management (IAM) seeks to help students do just that.
Catering to aspirants from India and other parts of the world, IAM not only helps students understand the concept of hospitality management and its relevance in today’s world, but also makes sure that students earn recognition through their hard work and expertise, be it in India or anywhere else in the world.
“Hospitality management is a dynamic and versatile industry where candidates are not only placed in core sectors such as hotels or restaurants but also other service sectors such as banks, insurance companies, retail, facilities management healthcare and more. The rigours of hospitality training make a student flexible, interactive and able to handle situations with calm. This is what makes hospitality graduates sought-after. In a world where multitasking is a key factor, it only increases their employability,” said Maitreyee Chaudhuri,director, IAM.
IAM’s global approach to hospitality management has helped students get placed in renowned companies all over the world. Sandip Gupta, a student of IAM, is currently the executive director of Dining Concepts in Hong Kong, a
Fortune 500 company, and runs 16 Michelin-star restaurants.
“Students are placed across hotels and resorts in the US, Europe, Malaysia, Maldives and West Asia. More importantly, the global curriculum, which is also followed by the BA students of hospitality management, University of West
London, gives the students a cutting edge in global hospitality industry,” Chaudhuri said.
The main focus at IAM has always been on making sure students are industry-ready. Even during the pandemic, when physical classes had to be discontinued, IAM held classes online and supported their students through multiple sessions with nationally and internationally acclaimed experts of the industry.
The curriculum is dynamic and accommodates the current trends of the market. Sessions conducted by industry experts keep the students focussed on their careers. “Where traditional careers such as engineering and management are getting saturated, hospitality is on the rise,” Chaudhuri summed up.
