LIVE AND LEARN HOSPITALITY IN A SWISS PALACE
Established in 1992, the Swiss Hotel Management School (SHMS) has been leading the way in combining traditional Swiss hospitality expertise and international management competencies. The school has also earned a distinct reputation for pioneering technology in hospitality education, as it is the first hospitality school in the world to receive the prestigious Apple Distinguished School recognition.
The academic programmes reflect the diversity of the service sector and are designed to meet the needs of the competitive and rapidly changing industry. The Bachelor’s degree, Master of International Business in Hotel Management and Master of Science programmes are awarded by the University of Derby (UK), a leading institute in the fields of tourism and hospitality.
Housed in beautiful and historical former palace hotels in Caux and Leysin, these traditional settings are seamlessly blended with 21st century learning technology, providing students with innovative ways to support their learning goals. Students also share a campus with IHTTI School of Hotel Management, offering them a larger selection of pathways and the collaborative learning environment enable students to thrive collectively and individually.
