Swiss Educational College: Excelling In Hospitality Education With Vision & Dedication
Dr. Amin Khandaker,Founder According to a report published by Unilever, the global hospitality industry is worth nearly $4.7 trillion in 2023, with forecasts predicting 23.8 percent in growth over the next four years. This has also boosted the demand for hospitality education across the world. There has been an emergence of various hospitality education establishments which are dedicated to providing students with the kind of education that is aligned with the changing trends of the industry.

Speaking about hospitality education, Switzerland has always been at the top of the list. Swiss hospitality is renowned around the world which is the reason why the country has the most number of globally popular hospitality schools. The idea here is to prepare students not only in the theory based knowledge, but also to make them implement the same in the industry.

Swiss Educational College stands out as one of the reputable hospitality schools in this regard. It follows the a “six classics” education program that subjects the candidates for six months of theory based learning followed by a six month long paid internship. This is followed by the college for every student in every year until graduation.

The college’s motto is to provide 360 degree learning experience to all the students. Apart from the core hospitality courses, it also offers several co-curricular courses that help the students understand more prospects in life. “Within the four years of graduation, two years of theory based learning programs are provided and two years of paid internship is also included.
The benefit for all the students is that by the time they finish graduation, all of them already have two years of certified industry experience. This gives them the added edge among the entire community of aspirants throughout the world. The ‘six classics’ framework that is specific to Swiss hospitality education has been game changing in this regard”, mentions Dr. Amin Khandaker, Founder, Swiss Educational College.
