WEEK 1: Swiss Hospitality Excellence
This week gives a broad overview of the World of Hospitality, how the industry works, and how it is structured. You will be taught how to identify and explore trends, understand potential clients, and gain insights into how COVID-19 has shaped the global hospitality industry. The brand identity and positioning of hotel and restaurant chains will be explored to give a better understanding of the important role this plays in a brand’s success. Through engagement and interaction with our skilled teachers and industry experts, students will be given the opportunity to improve their verbal and non-verbal communication skills.
WEEK 2: Events planning
If you dream of organising a large-scale unique event, being able to think creatively, and having a thorough knowledge of the events industry, you will love this week. Our team of outstanding industry experts will cover all you need to know to plan an event from beginning to end, including choosing the right location, spotting trends, determining budgets, identifying stakeholders and partnerships, formulating a marketing plan, and managing logistics.
WEEK 3: Entrepreneurship & Leadership
During this challenging and exciting week the focus is on learning more about yourself and your character strengths, and what it takes to be an entrepreneur and leader. You will undertake personality tests, and participate in communication workshops, public speaking activities, and group projects. Students will be taught strategic thinking skills, along with the ability to identify the differences between a leader and a manager, and be given an understanding of management structures. At the end of this intensive week you will be able to create your own basic business plan for any future venture.
This region of Switzerland offers beautiful landscapes, picturesque mountain villages, and sparkling lakes. Every Saturday, students who are continuing on another week take part in a day long excursion. Destinations are alternated, and include city trips to Bern, the Swiss capital, Lausanne, the world's best small city, or Geneva, home of the International Red Cross and the world-famous water jet.
The evening is the best time of the day to relax, have fun, and enjoy the atmosphere of the program. Activities include an evening by the lake, a Casino Night, a talent show, Olympiads, cinema nights and karaoke. Evening activities are optional, however, they are a great bonding opportunity as well as an integral part of community life.
On Friday, the evening opens with a graduation ceremony where certificates are given out, followed by a gala dinner and a fun disco celebration.
