Profile of Career College/Trade School

Imperial Hotel Management College (IHMC) is a career training college which offers a 9-month Executive Hotel Management Diploma Program allowing students the opportunity to live, study and gain work experience in full service hotels across Canada.

IHMC is accredited by the Private Career Training Institutions Agency (PCTIA) of British Columbia. We are a client of the Canadian Education Centre Network (CECN), a member of the British Columbia Career Colleges Association (BCCCA) and a member of the Canadian National Association of Career Colleges (NACC).

IHMC uses the industry-endorsed curriculum from the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) as the foundation of the academic portion of our program. In addition to the AHLA curriculum students also complete workshops, assignments and group projects. Throughout the program students have industry specialists as their instructors and mentors.

What makes IHMC unique is that we have designed the hotel work experience as an integrated part of the curriculum. Instead of leaving students to look for internship themselves, we pre-arrange up to 500 hours of work experience for IHMC students at our hotel campuses throughout the 9 months. After the 3-week orientation period, students will immediately start their training at our hotel campuses. Students will be assigned a supervisor and are taught on the job, usually one on one. Students work 3 hours per day Monday to Friday, and usually spend 2-3 weeks in each department. At the end of the program students receive feedback from trainers, as well as reference letters from the General Manager or Department Head of the hotels where they have worked during the program. By the end of the program students will have worked in various departments (from accounting to executive office, from catering to banqueting to kitchen, from front desk to housekeeping, etc.)

Prospective students are welcome to drop by our administration office in Vancouver for more information on IHMC and also for a tour of one of our hotel campuses. Our office is open Monday to Friday 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Please email us at or call 1-604-685-3272 to set up an appointment.
