Who are we


SKILLSTON (National Institute of Culinary Arts and Hotel Management, Formerly NICAHM) launched its first campus in Karachi in July, 2014.

SKILLSTON aspires to be the finest institute of professional excellence and a hub for international culinary & baking arts and hospitality management.

The Institute delivers professional courses with our international partners which are based on international standards.

The institute provides individuals in Pakistan with a platform where they can express their artistic skills pertaining to the hospitality industry.

We welcome exceptional students from all backgrounds to be future leaders in the hospitality sector around the world.
