This program is no longer available in Lausanne. It has been replaced by a tertiary B-level program offered by the Swiss School of Tourism & Hospitality (SSTH), which was recently taken over by the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne.
The new curriculum, which is available in English and German, will incorporate the flagship elements of the diploma program. Through it, we aim to deliver the best professional training in the industry.
The last students on the diploma program will graduate in February 2015, after completing a two-year course organized as follows:
Semester I: Six months on campus, during which students develop and exercise their skills in each field.
Semester II: A six-month operational internship.
Semester III: Six months on campus, during which students develop their leadership skills by supervising groups of new students.
Semester III: A six-month management internship.
Diploma Project: students prepare for and develop a creative business project.
