How and Why IAMD was Launched...
On January 31, 2015. IAMD plunged in to an abyss of darkenss when chairman Prof. K. Pandurangaiah suddenly expired, unexpectedly. The instant death occurred leaving the IAMD, which he so lovingly nourished, almost orphaned.
The late professor a doyen amongst educationists spent most of his life as an educator and a constant researcher. Although he was on the teaching fraternity of U.A.S Bangalore his interest and initiative spread to other fields of education.
He nurtured and encouraged rural youth to take up education and was responsible in shaping their future career.
Once he retired from U.A.S Bangalore in the year 2007, he immediately launched IAMD to offer vocational courses to school passouts. Obviously, all those youth who either could not afford higher education or denied opportunities were soon attracted to the courses IAMD had launched.
Over the years, IAMD has grown into a major institution offering a number of job – oriented courses. Prof .Pandurangaiah was particular that every student passing out of IAMD portals found a suitable placement Owing to his vision and guidance today IAMD trains a large number of hotel executives, air hostesses and fashion designers. New courses such as retail management and bakery & confectionery courses have been added. Prof. Pandurangaiah 's foresight helps IAMD to move vigorously on the path of expansion and progress.
Prof. H. S. Rao
It is our earnest endeavour to spread the vocational education amongst the large populace who are deprived of opportunities to pursue formal higher education in a regular institution. We at IAMD shall strive to provide high class instruction both theoretical and practical so that the students are moulded into readymade executives to serve the respective industry.
Because of the unprecedented growth in the hotel and airlines industries the demand for trained personnel is skyrocketing. The demand is not only for replenishment staff but also to fill in new positions which are being created by innovative entrepreneurs every day.
Our special courses are Hotel Management Diploma & Air hostess & cabin crew training. Even in the fashion segment, the supply of skilled personnel is lagging behind the demand. We have devised a one-year fashion designing diploma.
Another sector which is now bursting at the seams is retailing. Keeping in view the very large openings at the malls and other retailing networks, we are offering a One-year diploma in retail management. We have tie ups with large malls where we arrange on the job training and placements.
The situation today is that employers are prepared to compensate the recruits commensurate with their experience and skills. They no longer are pegged into pre slotted grades. One can demand and get his/her price.
We at IAMD are geared to impart such training that the industry is seeking today. Come and join us. Together we shall realize our dreams.
The idea of launching an educational institution was persistent in the minds of the educationists led by Prof. K. Pandurangaiah. However, the consensus veered around the proposal to start an institution which would show results instantly. That is how it was decided to go in for a gamut of vocational courses which would not only render instructions in various fields but also mould the students to take up positions in the industry.
In today’s world hospitality, aviation, retail and online business ventures take the cake. These industries need live wire executives who can fill in the ever growing vacancies. We have designed the courses in such a way that students who engage in theoretical studies will also participate in the practical side of studies. Expert faculty will take care of the direction to and coaching the students.
IAMD has provided spacious class rooms and well planned work places. Our library can ensure that the students are offered the best possible exposure.
