SHML is Switzerland’s first Boutique Hotel School that was developed with the operating philosophies of luxury International boutique hotels and resorts in mind. It is designed to prepare and train students for a promising hospitality career. SHML operates within a real boutique hotel that is open to guests during the winter season. This offers an ideal environment for students to observe and take part in operations as they occur; which includes the fine arts of food and beverage production and services, rooms division, supervisory and management procedures, and guest services. Our College syllabi differ in that it provides the opportunity for our students to deal directly with professional hoteliers who have acquired the necessary skills to operate and manage some of the best hotels and resorts in the world. To ensure rigorous academic curricula and substance, our college has arranged a managed progression agreement with the University of Gloucestershire for a top-up degree BA (Hon.) in Strategic Hospitality Management at their campus in Cheltenham (UK). SHML aims at keeping the time-proven fundamentals of Swiss Hotel Operations alive by being kept in touch with the local Swiss culture. Swiss culture implies integrity, neutrality, unity, impartiality, respect, and individual responsibility towards the environment; which has allowed it to receive praise throughout the world.
