TESTIMONIALS

"I can proudly say that IMI has turned me into a better person..."

Lady Yuhelva

from Indonesia , graduated in 2017

I started my study at IMI in 2014 on the Culinary degree and it has helped me develop a positive attitude towards my studies and allowed me to discover more about myself. The international nature of the students in the university has also been a major factor in terms of adapting to a new environment, which helped me greatly in adapting to other, new multicultural environments. The internship program improved my understanding of the hospitality industry. The education and experience in IMI really developed my knowledge of how to manage a business concept as well as how to be an effective leader. This will allow me to perform better and help me reach my future career goal as a restaurant owner. Lots of thanks IMI!

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.
