With close to 40 years of experience, César Ritz Colleges Switzerland’s (CRCS) academic programmes are based on the core values of sustainable business practices, entrepreneurship and innovation, combined with the philosophies of César Ritz, pioneer of luxury hotels and founder of the famous Ritz hotels. It is his tradition of luxury, excellence, and service that has set the standards for hotels and restaurants throughout the world.

Students in the Bachelor’s programme specialise in hospitality and tourism, in partnership with Washington State University (USA). This programme culminates with the development of a comprehensive and realistic business plan as part of every student’s curriculum. The Master’s programme, accredited by the University of Derby (UK), provides a contemporary curriculum preparing graduates to launch and maintain a sustainable and profitable business within a challenging global environment. Both programmes also benefit from the industry experience shared by our partners such as Ritz Paris and Switzerland Tourism.

CRCS has three campuses - the historic centre of Lucerne, up in the mountains at Brig and lakeside at Le Bouveret. The Le Bouveret campus is also home to The Mosimann Collection which features a fascinating collection of rare culinary publications, photographs and menus in partnership with world-renowned Chef Anon Mosimann OBE.

As an extra bonus, Le Bouveret and Lucerne students share their campus with Culinary Arts Academy students, This offers hospitality students the opportunity to organise events and develop their hospitality skills alongside future chef entrepreneurs.

CRCS is an integral member of Swiss Education Group, the global leader in hospitality education. With over 21,000 members, the Group has one of the largest hospitality alumni networks in the world.
