Why is Switzerland a reference for Global Hospitality Education?
Switzerland is renowned for its tradition in providing high class, state-of-the-art hospitality. The country has built an unquestionable reputation in the sector which spans nearly two centuries since the inception of castle-like hotels in the luxurious region of the Montreux Riviera.
During this period, Switzerland attracted the attention of the affluent who visited the country in search of remarkable outdoorsy experiences in a picturesque and snowcapped mountainous land.
These distinguished guests, among them dignitaries and aristocrats, demanded nothing but the best in terms of accommodation and service, which prompted hotel owners to go the extra mile to provide what would become the Swiss standard of hospitality.
Switzerland has also become synonymous to industries that rely on rigour, precision, attention to detail, timely service and discretion. An industry that relies heavily on such skills is Hospitality.
Key pillars of Swiss Hospitality Education:
- Attention to detail
- Impeccable presentation
Today, Switzerland is a reference for premium high-end hospitality and hotel management techniques and education.
Swiss Experiential Learning Model
Swiss hospitality education is driven by core values such as precision, rigour, discretion and respect for the customer. HTMi curriculum is based on a pedagogical model that relies heavily on experiential learning which has students immersed in practical modules and workshops also known at HTMi as Work Integrated Learning (WIL).
HTMi students will be equipped to apply these transferable skills in management functions, in hospitality, tourism, and general management.
