The origins of hospitality

Located in the heart of Europe, Switzerland is respected and celebrated around the world. Its reputation as the birthplace of modern hospitality was established in the 19th century when wealthy tourists, aristocracy, and royalty from around the world arrived en masse to breathe the pristine mountain air and experience the breathtaking landscapes. The first palace-style hotels were built to accommodate them and cater to their needs. 

The world’s first hospitality management school was established in Switzerland in 1893, leading to a long tradition of excellence in hospitality, business, and culinary education. The Swiss commitment to innovation is perfectly tailored to today’s dynamic, rapidly evolving world. It is world-renowned for its commitment to luxury, quality, and service. The Swiss savoir-faire makes our graduates highly sought after within the industry and beyond.
