AcademicsDear Students, I Am Grateful To You

A New Year, a new decade and so much to be grateful for at Hotel Institute Montreux

Looking back on the year that has been, it feels like a good time to reflect on all that has taken place at HIM in 2019.

I start with you, students…

who on a daily basis inspire us to be the best we can be! It is a true pleasure to be a part of your hospitality journey.

To our alumni…

thank you for staying in touch and giving your time so generously to continue to inspire, motivate and guide our younger students.

Our industry partners…

you are so very appreciated! Thank you for all that you do to support us in developing tomorrow’s hospitality and business leaders.

Thank you to the entire Team at Hotel Institute Montreux… it truly is a privilege working alongside such a dedicated team.

2019 has been an exciting year for HIM! We received international Recognition of Excellence from THE-ICE with number 1 ranking in Application to Offer Satisfaction, Arrival Overall, Good Contacts and Visa Advice and number 3 ranking for Overall Student Satisfaction. HIM also rose in the QS university rankings to the 15th institution worldwide for Hospitality and Leisure Management and 6th in Switzerland.

In 2019, we welcomed 4 new industry partners strengthening even further our specializations and programmes.

The new year and start of a new decade will bring even more new projects and prospects to our institution as we celebrate HIM’s 35th anniversary. Looking forward, we plan to continue to focus on Gen Z, listening to their needs and wants as we prepare them for the workforce.

As an education institution fixed on the future, we will continue to incorporate AI in the classroom while continuing to reinforce the importance of hospitality soft skills. At HIM, high-tech and high-touch go hand in hand.

Like Brad Paisley once said, “Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365-page book.” I look forward to writing this book with our students, our alumni, colleagues and peers and our supportive industry partners!

As the new year and new decade approaches, best wishes from all of us at HIM with hopes of a peaceful, healthy and joyous New Year!
