Housed in former traditional Swiss Palace hotels, Swiss Hotel Management School is focused on "Learning By Doing". Lavish banqueting halls, a grand theatre, fully equipped wet and dry spas and multiple restaurants combined with courses validated by our UK university partner enable a transformational hospitality management education. Our industry- ready and future-ready graduates are highly sought after by international hotel partners to start a successful career in the fast growing world of hospitality.
Swiss Hotel Management School’s vision is to inspire meaningful learning journeys that are intellectually, socially, and personally transformative. Their mission is to guide hospitality management students through intellectual, social and personal transformation that challenges old paradigms and inspires meaningful and interdisciplinary learning journeys for discovering how best and sustainably to serve the world.
Their pedagogical strategy is designed to be transformative and student-centred where learners take an active role in facilitating personalized and process-oriented learning. Intellectual, social, and personal transformation is stimulated by using a variety of approaches, including flipping the classroom and challenge-based learning in authentic environments. Technology is fully integrated in their teaching, learning, and assessment strategy on a one-on-one basis and fosters deep and enriching collaborative learning experiences.
Their goal is to produce the best and most employable, industry-ready and future-ready graduates. The faculty continually explores the optimal ways for students to learn applicable and transferable skills needed to achieve their future success.
“We submitted for the HEA Global Teaching Excellence Award to learn from the process and improve our educational offering so that we may achieve our goal to produce the best and most employable, industry-ready and future-ready graduates.”
