kolkatacampusThe Institute of Advanced Management was established in 1989 with the mission to provide world class education and training in Hospitality Management by constantly innovating and improving upon the discipline through state of the art methods of training, meaningful research and close relations with the hospitality industry, business and other institutions of India and abroad.

The Institute was formed by a group of young academic entrepreneurs to provide need based professional qualifications to young students. The qualification was aimed at imparting skills training to candidates in order to find gainful employment in the Industry. The IAM HOTEL SCHOOL was a relatively new entrant in the area of professional training and manpower development. Within a span of twenty years it has become recognised in the country as a leading supplier of trained manpower for the hospitality industry.

The market leaders of the Indian and International Hospitality Industry have been major recruiters of our Hospitality Management Graduates and the Institute gained the Institute of the Year Award in 1995. Over the years, the Institute has developed global partnerships with Institutions in the UK such as Robert Gordon University and Queen Margaret University, and offered the first franchised degree programme to be delivered in India.  In addition, the Institute is also the approved centre for BTEC EDEXEL, United Kingdom and City and Guilds.

In 2002 the Institute further enhanced its academic programme by delivering a BA International Hospitality Management programme in India. In 2006, with the academic collaboration with Edinburgh Napier University, the Institute looked forward to achieving a new landmark in Hospitality education and in 2008 was ranked as the top centre for excellence in hospitality education as per the Global Human Resource Development Centre – Competition Success Review, and has held on to this ranking over the past 8 years.
