The Asian Institute of Hospitality Management (AIHM) is an international hospitality institute founded by Minor Hotels, one of the world’s fastest growing hospitality companies, in academic association with Les Roches, a global leader in hospitality education.
AIHM has campuses in both Bangkok and Pattaya.
The Bangkok Campus is located inside Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel, right next to Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort. You’ll be in the centre of Minor Hotels’ hospitality complex, a thriving community of students and top hospitality professionals from across the globe.
The Pattaya Campus is located in Royal Garden Plaza Pattaya, near some of the most recognisable hospitality names in Thailand, including the Avani Pattaya Resort.
You can reach both campuses easily, either by private taxi or other budget-friendly options, including the BTS Skytrain, which operates in Bangkok, or by bus from Victory Monument to Pattaya.
AIHM unlocks a world of opportunity. Graduates with experience in hospitality will be highly qualified for leadership roles in the industry, including managerial positions in core roles. Through our hands-on coursework and internship programmes, you will have the chance to get your foot in the door early as you network with industry professionals from leading hospitality companies. On top of this, AIHM helps develop transferable skills and instils confidence that will prepare you to start and lead entrepreneurial ventures. AIHM's strong emphasis on cultural interchange prepares graduates for a truly global career, or the option of location independent careers favoured by digital nomads.
Our mix of Thai and international faculty members have strong hospitality backgrounds. Some come directly from Minor Hotels; all are approved by Les Roches. We’ve hand-picked instructors who are at the top of their field, with a strong global outlook and keen understanding of Asian cultures. Our diverse academic community makes us uniquely AIHM.
AIHM offers a Bachelor of Business Administration in Global Hospitality Management and a 20-week Intensive Hospitality English Language Programme at this time, with additional programmes planned for the future.
AIHM recognises certain credits earned at other accredited institutions, and student transfers are welcome. Applications for credits are considered on a case-by-case basis. The admissions department, in conjunction with the Academic Dean, will review and assess credit transfers and entry points.
For domestic students, it should take approximately two to three days to complete the whole process.
For international students who have sent completed application files and receipts of all required documents, it will take around one week to process the application and to send over a letter of acceptance via email. You will then be required to make a payment for the first semester before your visa-supporting documents are granted.
Student applications can be submitted through the online application form. Alternatively, students can manually complete an application form and mail it to AIHM’s Bangkok Campus address. Application forms are available for download here and will also be available during our Bangkok Campus tours.
The Bachelor of Business Administration in Global Hospitality Management programme is taught and assessed in English.
