The infrastructure is above-average, and the faculty members and principal are the best.

Placements: Due to the covid 19 crisis in the industry, there were hardly any campus interviews. But the college tried to bring some companies and conducted the interviews online. About 40-50 students got placed in various companies.

Infrastructure: The college infrastructure is good. There is no Wi-Fi access for students. There is an area for gym, but no equipment is present. The hostel is very good, especially the first-year hostel block. There are separate blocks for all the years. Food quality has improved over the year...

The college is good, but the faculty members are little strict with the college students.

Placements: The placements were great on the campus. Many companies like Four Seasons, Leela, and Taj came for the placements.

Faculty members are good, and the college is worth your money.

Placements: There is a placement cell in our college (IHMCT Kovalam). From my experience as a student, I can say that there are good placements in college. As it is a hotel management institute, some of our major recruiters are The Four Seasons, Sheraton, Hyatt, Taj, Dominos and IHG. Most of my seniors got placed in some of these good properties. Almost 95% of the students got placed from our batch and our senior batch.

I was groomed by this college and I am very happy to be a part of this college.

Placements: Placements were amazing. The placement percentage of my batch was 87%. The average salary offered was Rs. 20,000 per month. The companies like Oberoi, Taj, Hyatt, Mc Donald's, and Karfi International-Dubai, Four Seasons, Maldives etc. visit the campus for placements. All the students get the internship from the college. There were few students who got through the management trainee programs, and few got through cooperate trainees as well.

Placements: The college has a good placement record. The range of placement is in between 75-85 %. The companies that come for placement are Taj, Hyatt, Marriot, Leela, Burger King, IHG, Dominos, Yes Bank, Puma.

The college used to be good but has faced a huge downfall.

No recommendations are given by the teachers upon course completion and no one helps the unemployed students to get a job. The placement opportunities here are truly disappointing.
