TESTIMONIALS

"I believe that ICI gives its students multiple skills so that they are prepared to branch out into different fields and are not limited in their abilities. "

Gloria Agustoni

from South Africa , graduated in 2016

I chose IMI because it is one of the fews schools offering a Bachelor's Degree in Culinary Arts, where thorough management theory is combined with practical kitchen skills. In the competitive world of hospitality and cheffing, it is important to understand these two aspects in order to excel in the industry. I believe that IMI gives its students multiple skills so that they are prepared to branch out into different fields and are not limited in their abilities.
