Research at IMI

Since its first intake in 1991, IMI International Management Institute has been helping students from across the world to achieve their career goals and personal potential. Although vocational education and training has been at the core of what we do, we recognise that research is also of equal importance. At IMI we believe that excellence in teaching should be complemented by excellence in applied research outputs.

Our aim is to undertake rigorous research that advances academics' understanding about the management of hospitality and tourism organisations, addresses the needs of organisations and policy makers as well as enhances teaching and learning practices. We are committed to transfer the knowledge which staff generate in their work to the wider community, for the benefit of all.

We are determined to nurture a culture of research support and to develop knowledge and skill capacities in hospitality and tourism management so as to reflect the assurance to our students that IMI follows a highly personalised and individual approach to their learning. To achieve this goal IMI encourages staff and students to embark on research and publish in international conferences and academic journals across the hospitality and tourism disciplines.

As a truly international and multicultural school, we are also keen on collaborating with international organisations to identify opportunities and transform good ideas into applied research and practice.
