Postgraduate Diploma

Students entering the Postgraduate Programme typically hold an undergraduate degree in studies unrelated to the field of hospitality and wish to change their career path, drawn by the exciting career opportunities that the global hospitality industry has to offer. SHMS is uniquely qualified to equip these students with the know-how required by the hospitality industry to become the most sought-after interns and employees.

Students who complete the Hotel Operations pathway benefit from a substantial number of weekly real-life, on-the-job experiences in the many F&B outlets and simulation situations on campus. Practice plus theory are the key components of learning.

Students in the Hotel & Events Management pathway opt for a more theory-driven approach, as they typically already have some work experience and degrees. Sharing the same Core and Support Modules with their Operations colleagues, the focus of the pathway is on Events organisation, with a social and MICE event as the highlight of the semester.

The Swiss Postgraduate Diploma programme has been designed in such a way that, upon successful completion, students may progress directly onto the MSc in International Hospitality Management or the MIB in Hotel, Resort and Wellness Management programmes.
