Imperial Hotel Management College:
Located in the heart of the financial district in downtown Vancouver, British Cloumbia, Imperial Hotel Management College offers a unique, comprehensive and balanced hotel management program where academic learning is mixed with hands-on work experience at hotel and resort properties. IHMC specializes exclusively in hotel management training, and is the only hospitality training institution in North America that offers programs where students actually live, work and study in full service hotels and resorts. The academic curriculum is industry endorsed from the American Hotel and Lodging Association and graduates receive dual diplomas, reference letters, and up to 500 hours of hotel practical training.
Executive Hotel Management Program
The 9-month Executive Hotel Management Program is designed to provide students a complete overview of the operation all the departments of a full-size hotel. Students are given the opportunity to put the theories learned in class into immediate use on a daily basis. The theory-plus-practice approach in teaching hospitality management requires students to spend half their time in class and the other half in practical training.
Our academic curriculum is broad-based, which means it covers all the disciplines necessary to run a hospitality business, for example, accounting & finance, general management, marketing & sales, information technology, human resources, food & beverage management, and rooms division management.
Part of our academic material is based on the highly regarded professional training curriculum from the Educational Institute of the American Hotel and Lodging Association. Our lecturers are experienced executives in the hospitality field with a passion for the industry, and are certified by the American Hotel and Lodging Association.
Each of the following 12 courses are required to pass the academic component of the program:
- General Introduction Course
- Hospitality Today: An Introduction
- Food and Beverage Management
- Rooms Division Management
- Managing Front Office Operations
- Housekeeping Management
- Human Resources
- Managing Hospitality Human Resources
- Supervision in the Hospitality Industry
- Hospitality Sales and Marketing
- Basic Hotel and Restaurant Accounting
- General Management
- Hospitality Facilities Management and Design
- Management Technology in the Hospitality Industry
- International Hotel Management
- Understanding Hospitality Law
Upon completion of the program, students will receive two diplomas: one from the Educational Institute of the American Hotel and Lodging Association, and the other from Imperial Hotel Management College.
Practical Training Component
As in other professional training programs such as law, medicine or business administration, the importance of practical work experience cannot be underestimated. As previously mentioned, once enrolled in the program, students will be placed in training positions at affiliated hotels to work side by side with hotel staff members. Students will gain invaluable work experience in practically every department of a full-size hotel, for example:
- Front office
- Human resources
- Guest services
- Food & beverage
- Sales & marketing
- Information systems
- Accounting & finance
- Convention management
- Maintenance & engineering
Upon completing the Executive Hotel Management program, an IHMC graduate would have gained work experience in not one, but all major departments of a full-size hotel. In most cases, our graduates would have experienced training in two to three different types of internationally branded hotels in Canada, from downtown business hotels to resort centres.
In summary, the Executive Hotel Management Diploma Program focuses on creating practical competence and therefore confidence. The program meets the challenge of providing students exposure and effective training in a fully operational, standards-oriented environment. This unique combination of management plus practice means that when students graduate, they will be immediately operational in almost any entry-level position in the industry. More importantly, it means students will have the business know-how to become an effective member of a management team.
