Located in the heart of Europe, Switzerland offers not only some of the world's finest landscapes, but also the cultural heritage of a multilingual population. Switzerland is a safe and friendly country, making it an easy place for students to combine study with the discovery of the culture and people of this beautiful country. Switzerland's infrastructure is one of the world’s most developed and the country has a long tradition in hospitality and hotel management enabling students to learn directly from the source of that tradition.
Switzerland’s political and economic system has brought decades of stability and provides a high quality of life and a secure future. This stability is the reason why international organisations such as the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the United Nations (UN), foreign corporations and international forums such as the World Economic Forum (WEF) value Switzerland as a secure and stable base and by doing so have made it an international hub. Many international companies have selected Switzerland for their headquarters because of the country's reputation for stability, safety and multicultural understanding.
Switzerland has an international reputation as a provider of world-class education. In particular, Swiss hotel management programmes are recognised by the industry as being of exceptional quality. Switzerland enjoys a long-standing tradition and reputation for educational excellence.
The Swiss economy is based on the development and production of goods of high quality and is dependent on a highly qualified and well-educated workforce. A good education system is therefore the basis for the international competitiveness of the Swiss economy.
