Picture of Hotel Management School in Switzerland“IMI is a university like no other. With passion, dedication, and competence, professors and staff members forged me into the best professional I could become. The personal attention I  received during my studies and trainings reflected the ‘family-first’ ethos of the school. The design of the programme and the career services at IMI enabled me to do five different internships in  Switzerland and abroad, boosting my professional profile and opening plenty of doors and job opportunities after graduation. I believe IMI has played a major role in shaping me as a person and as a professional.”
