Learn More About AIHM
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 the Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel, right next to the 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 the 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.
