Message from Director Desk - Pune

It has been nearly two years that I have been in the city of Pune and the city still does not cease to amaze me. Its people, weather, culture, nightlife, weekend getaways at close proximity and wide choice of food joints make Pune an unbeatable destination for the “IT” generation. Once known as a pensioner’s paradise, the city today boasts of a large figure of youth population, one of the highest in India. Not only this, it is growing everyday with a number of malls building up in and around the city at prime locations, the same goes for restaurants, lounges, five star hotels, B-schools and universities amongst others.
Is that not what today’s college going youth looks for?

Pune beckons! Come to Pune…come to IIHM.
IIHM is today India’s largest Hotel School Chain. It has evolved and our presence is now global. You may wonder why you should join IIHM. Well, the answer lies in its teaching methodology which is crisper, student centered, contemporary and more visually exciting and that is not all, you will find elsewhere on this website ten more awesome reasons to join IIHM. You will also be able to find us on the facebook and follow us.
IIHM has an ongoing interest in the topic of innovation. This is not surprising, of course; in the world of hospitality, innovation is the name of the game. Under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Suborno Bose ,today IIHM is poised to be the largest hotel school chain not only in India, but in Asia.

The Indian hotel industry, which is a significant stakeholder in the tourism sector, witnessed the effect of global slowdown, though for Pune, thanks to its IT & Auto sector, hotel industry remained in good health.
As per some recent reports, Pune will see 4,500 to 5,000 more hotel rooms across categories by 2011-12. The IT boom is continuing to impact Pune in a big way. This is proved by the number of IT parks coming up in the city. Pune which is known as the Oxford of the East is fast becoming a technological capital of the country. It is, therefore, with high expectations that I continue in the position of the Director of IIHM at Pune. In this capacity, I look forward to carry on expanding the valuable brand of IIHM in the western region of the country.

I look forward to keep on working effectively with my colleagues and partners to make IIHM one of the world’s leading institutes of hospitality. IIn the coming years, IIHM will continue to build on its strengths and advantages. Institutions, like organisms, must evolve and adapt. Continuous adaptation is essential for every successful Institution.

   Mr. Rupinder Singh Khurana,
   Director-IIHM, Pune
