Switzerland’s reputation as the birthplace of modern hospitality was established more than 100 years ago, and today it is home to the top hospitality management schools in the world whose graduates are highly sought after in the industry. Its strong economy is powered by a highly developed service sector led by financial services and a high-tech manufacturing industry. Alongside its natural beauty, Switzerland is ranked amongst the world’s top ten safest and most crime-free countries, as well as being voted the number one safest country in the world when it comes to COVID-19 (Forbes).
Set in the hills overlooking Lake Geneva, the Caux campus is a short train ride from the lively city of Montreux with its shops, restaurants, and cosmopolitan lifestyle. As a historic building, the Caux Palace offers a unique environment in which to study, steeped in the heritage of Swiss hospitality traditions. Regularly renovated, the campus offers modern facilities and a learning environment equipped with the latest technology.

The Leysin campus is housed in two former hotels, the Mont-Blanc Palace and the Belvédère, linked by the SHMS Skytrain.
