SEG, Swiss Education Group

The Hospitality Industry is growing rapidly around the world – investing in the right education offers you a great future, says the Swiss Education Group.

With the hospitality industry one of world’s largest employers, accounting for one in every eleven jobs in 2013 (UNWTO) there are hundreds of exciting career opportunities for suitably trained professionals.

Switzerland has a long tradition of hospitality education and is considered to be the birth-place of the modern hospitality tradition. Today, these traditions continue and graduates of the Swiss system are highly respected for their ability to function and take charge in the competitive, international hospitality environment.

Jennifer Lombard Knight, a graduate of one of the Swiss Hotel Management School, knows the excitement of an international career in the hospitality industry, currently working with the Intercontinental Group in Doha. Jennifer, was recently named Young Hotelier of the Year in the Middle East and says that, “the hospitality industry is like no other. It will allow you to experience every aspect of what makes a business successful from HR to operations to sales.”

The five schools, which form the Swiss Education Group, SEG, prepare students for leading roles in the hospitality industry through intensive programmes, which combine academic study with practical experience. As a part of their studies, students are required to complete periods of internship, which allow them to gain valuable experience in their chosen field.
“I did my first internship at Claridges in London and it was a phenomenal experience in such an iconic property and with such high service expectations,” says Euan Cunningham, a second year student from the UK.

The Swiss Education Group fosters close relationships with many of the world’s leading hospitality companies including, Hyatt, Hilton, Four Seasons, Accor, Kempinski, Marriot, Ritz Carlton, Intercontinental and the Mandarin Oriental, who visit Switzerland in order to employ graduating students.
