What was started in 1991 is now recognised by the industry as the number one hospitality management school in Australia and Asia-Pacific (TNS Survey, 2013).
BMIHMS at Torrens University courses are delivered across two custom designed campuses. Undergraduate students study on campus at Leura in the Blue Mountains at the School’s Practical Learning Centre.

Postgraduate students also study at the Sydney-Town Hall campus, located in the heart of the city.
The school is known for its internationally recognised hospitality and business courses, all of which are highly regarded within the hospitality management industry.
