Established during a time of acute grain shortage, IHM Mumbai was born out of a noble initiative to sensitize Indians about alternative grains and conservation efforts. Spearheaded by visionaries like Ms. Lilavati Munshi, Ms. Thrity Taleyarkhan, and Ms. Leela N Jog, the institute started with a modest beginning, offering a one-year program to six pioneering students. Over the years, IHM Mumbai expanded its offerings, including diploma and degree programs, catering to the evolving demands of the hospitality industry.

Recognized for its commitment to excellence, IHM Mumbai has garnered prestigious accolades, including the Times Education Award for the Best Hotel Management Institute and recognition from India Today. The institutes emphasis on holistic development is reflected in its diverse range of courses, which not only includes traditional hospitality programs but also specialized courses in cookery, bakery, and hotel consultancy.

In line with its milestone anniversary, IHM Mumbai is hosting a series of celebratory events culminating in a grand finale on Saturday, February 17, 2024, at NESCO, Mumbai. The event will be graced by esteemed dignitaries such as Mr. Amitabh Kant, Sherpa of G20 India, and Mr. Nakul Anand, former executive director of ITC Hotels, among others. Alumni, industry leaders, and stakeholders will come together to reminisce and celebrate the institutes remarkable journey.
