Welcome to IAM Kolkata!

The 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 1995 the Institute enhanced its academic programme by delivering a BA-International Hospitality Management programme, of the ROBERT GORDON UNIVERSITY, Aberdeen (Scotland, UK) in India, which was a FIRST, for a Hotel-Management-Institute, in the country. This was a 5-Year long association. Thereafter, in 2000, IAM had another 5-Year long collaboration with the QUEEN MARGARET UNIVERSITY, Edinburgh (Scotland, UK). In 2006, IAM entered into an academic collaboration with EDINBURGH NAPIER UNIVERSITY, Scotland UK. This collaboration with Edinburgh Napier University, had a long innings of 10 years, up & until 2016.

The Institute continues to look forward to achieve new landmarks 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 10 years.


Besides all the classroom sessions, we firmly believe in the power of extra-curricular activities and how they can mold a certain individual into a smart, confident and self-reliant person. These activities take place throughout the year and give students an opportunity to showcase their skills with hands-on experience at work. Events like these take the student to a new level of learning as they are focussed on team work, communication, financial planning and other requirements that make for a successful manager or entrepreneur. These events are based within the city and also out of the city.


At IAM Kolkata, we offer UGC approved curriculum with 100% placement opportunities. We are the only institute to offer a Degree program in the state. We also offer 6-month Industrial training and 1-Year additional International internship opportunity. Apart from degree courses, the campus offers short term certification programs in Hospitality Operations, Culinary Skills and Patisserie & Bar and Beverage Management for 10th pass students.
