INTERNSHIP

Studying the theory to become a leader, also requires that it can later be applied in the real world. That is why our internships are a vital experience towards becoming a true leader. After each semester our students will be given the opportunity to work for 4-6 months in the hospitality industry. Much of our industry is based on great communication skills. There is no better lesson than to be integrated into a new environment, learning to work with a new team and to prove one's worth. This gives our students the possibility to grow in confidence and gain the respect of other members of our industry. Being able to graduate with international accepted degrees as well as having been able to absolve multiple internships with working certificates, prepares our students to be in a leading role when they go out in search for the first step of their career. It must also be mentioned that the internships in Switzerland are paid (CHF 2’300 to 2’500/ Month). So this gives the incredible opportunity for some students to be able to finance part of their education. Our Internship support officer provides useful tips and also can direct you to the internship that most interests you. We have great connections in the hospitality industry and are proud to be able to introduce our students to them.
