Switzerland's reputation as the home of hotel and hospitality management, was established over a hundred years ago when the first palace-style hotels were built. These grand hotels catered to an exclusive clientele of royalty, aristocrats, and wealthy individuals lured by the alps and alpine tourism.  Guests of this era demanded the highest levels of service excellence and the leading Swiss hoteliers responded by systematizing the processes for hotel operations. These processes were the foundation for the enviable reputation Switzerland has today in hospitality management.
The profile of the international traveler may have changed since then, but the principles of good hotel management remain the same: 

  • practical innovation
  • immaculate precision
  • discreet discipline
  • dependable quality
  • professional leadership
Those are the cornerstones of the “Swiss Hospitality Touch“ and the education at SHMS.
