Welcome to Chavara Institute
The Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (C.M.I.) is the largest Religious Congregation of Pontifical right in the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church. St Kuriakose Elias Chavara, the founder of the CMI Congregation is the guiding light and the heavenly patron of our institute.
Chavara Institute of Management and Media Studies (CIMAMS) commenced in 1984 under the leadership of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) priests, to promote higher learning and educate the citizen-leaders of our modern society. The brand new seven-storey CIMAMS building houses the Administrative Office, Library, Auditorium, Seminar Halls and the various Departments offering educational programmes in Hotel Management, Professional Cookery, Airport Management, Tourism, IATA and IELTS. CIMAMS has under its roof, the Alliance Française( French Language learning centre ) and " Goethe-Zentrum " ( Germen Language examination Centre ) in Cochin. All our courses are inclusive of modules for employability skills and soft skills development that prepare the students to meet the requirements of the industries of their choice.
Located in close proximity to Ernakulam South Railway Station, KSRTC bus stand, and two Metro Rail stations, CIMAMS is a great place to explore Cochin city at its best. All courses offered at CIMAMS are overseen by our faculty. The class sizes are on average below 40 allowing for a closer student-teacher relationship and thus contributing to the sense of community in campus.
