Message from the Director & Chairman
With immense pleasure we warmly welcome you to Munnar Catering College (MCC), the largest Hospitality Management Institute of its kind in India, assuring you a highly enriching and rewarding journey with us.
The Hospitality Industry is ranked as the largest employer in the world offering a broad variety of employment opportunities in many different sectors. The Hospitality business continuously demands new services, new ways of presenting existing services and new ideas for enhancing the experience of their demanding clientele. It is in view of this and on the basis of the ever increasing demand for qualified professionals in the industry that MCC was established by Thachankary Foundation, a Trust governed by the Indian Trust act 1882. The college is the first self-financing catering college in the state approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Government of India; and the Directorate of Technical Education, Government of Kerala. MCC is also affiliated to the National Council for Hotel Management & Catering Technology (NCHMCT), Ministry of Tourism, Government of India.
By offering training in international hotels abroad as part of the course, MCC aims at creating qualified professionals in a globalized context. In view of the technological growth and development at the national and international level, the college has introduced many new facilities in the campus for operational efficiency and convenience. All students are provided with a co-branded International Debit Card in association with SIB and Master Card. An ATM Machine has been installed inside the campus itself, giving our students the unique convenience of withdrawing cash without having to go outside the college. Thus the 100% Wifi Campus of MCC has become the first 100% Cashless Campus among all the professional colleges in the state. The College has already been branded as a totally Alcohol Free, Tobacco Free and Ragging Free Campus.
The College has also introduced the ‘Buddy System’ offering guidance, assistance and motivation by two senior students and a faculty, to all newly admitted students, for their exclusive personality and professional development. For inculcating a healthy competitive spirit in each student, all students are compulsorily enrolled in the ACHIEVERS GUILD; categorizing them under Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond groups based on strict parameters. Elevation to a higher group will attract more exposure and better opportunities even for employment.
Our International Academic Partnerships with some of the most prestigious and oldest universities in the world gives Munnar Catering College students unparalleled access to exclusive international Higher Diploma, Degree and Masters pathway programs, dual qualifications and global opportunities to accelerate their Hospitality careers. Munnar Catering College has academic collaborations and MOUs with: Royal Roads University, Canada; HTMi Hotel and Tourism Management Institute, Switzerland; and Munnar Catering College, UAE
For our students, campus life is a period of transformation into responsible global citizens, making them capable of facing the future with resilience and optimism. Therefore graduates of MCC are highly sought after in the industry and the workplace, valued for their education, range of skills and professionalism.
With this introduction we wholeheartedly invite you to join hands with us, to strengthen your capabilities in order to achieve excellence beyond imagination.
