Would you like a hands-on approach to your education in an impressive, service-orientated, culturally sensitive environment?

 

Housed in former traditional Swiss Palace hotels in Caux and Leysin, Swiss Hotel Management School’s generous facilities allow for a hands-on delivery of Hotel, Resort, Events, and Spa management programmes.

This “Learning By Doing” approach has long been the stronghold of traditional Swiss hospitality education. Lavish banqueting halls, a grand theatre, fully equipped wet and dry spas and a multitude of inclusive restaurants with various cuisine options enable students to experience hospitality operations first hand. In tandem with its strong UK university partner, the school develops graduates who can both implement their ideas in a working environment and lead the required processes, making them absolutely employment-ready.

The Swiss Hotel Management School offers an exciting range of programmes founded upon the internationally recognized Swiss traditions and focuses on global trends, business strategy and operational leadership. Students who join the international hotel school learn the art of Swiss Hospitality Management and develop the principles of the Swiss Hospitality Touch.

Students from more than 80 nationalities study in two exceptional settings, which offer a unique learning environment, steeped in the heritage of the Swiss hospitality tradition. The historic Caux Palace campus overlooks the Swiss Riviera and the Leysin campus is housed in two former hotels in the stunning Swiss Alps.
