IHM-A conducts the Admission process directly and has no admission agencies, tutorial classes, branches and does not subscribe to any channels or authorized intermediaries; electronic or otherwise to officially represent the Institute during the Admission process.

Please be advised that www.ihmaurangabad.ac.in is the only electronic official channel of registration. If you are unable to complete any part of this process, please contact our Admission Officer on ihm.aurangabad@tajhotels.com only and you will receive a response within 24 hours.

You must complete all prescribed admission processes ONLY through our authorized online procedure. Your admission to IHM-A and University of Huddersfield, UK would be governed by applicable regulations surrounding our collaborative relationship between Maulana Azad Educational Trust, Indian Hotels Company Limited (Taj Group) and University of Huddersfield.

  • Before you leave this site, make sure you have completed the detailed registration form by clicking on the registration button.
  • In order for you to be able to access the profiling test, you must make an online payment of Rs. 1,500/- (Indian Rupees One Thousand Five Hundred Only).

  • We will short-list you based on a collective assessment of your Profiling (weightage - 20%), Statement of Purpose and Group Discussion (weightage – 30%) and a Personal Interview (weightage – 50%).

The rationale behind taking this Online Profiling Test is to ensure that you can see your results immediately without causing any undue anxiety. This test will help you to see yourself in a new light, facilitate your growth and allow you to develop adequately before you meet us for the Group Discussion and Personal Interview. You will be advised to write a 1500 word Statement of Purpose to share with us - your perspective on the role this education at IHM-A would play in shaping your future by creating a vibrant personality who would succeed in the hospitality world.

Our Admission Team at IHM-A will conduct the group discussion and personal interview in coming months to ensure that we select you for a career rather than judge you competitively. You will have an option to meet us in any of these locations at a Taj Group Hotel in New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and at the Institute in Aurangabad.
