Immerse Yourself in the World of Hospitality
The academic pathway of our bachelor's degree in hospitality begins with a Preparatory Year (or AP as we often call it, based on the French title "Année Préparatoire"), which is delivered on the Lausanne campus in Switzerland. This year-long introduction to the world of hospitality will teach you everything you need to know about hotel and restaurant operations and create a professional foundation for the managerial and strategic courses of the degree.
During the first six months, you will rotate through the campus’ diverse food and beverage outlets and the reception and room division departments to give you first-hand knowledge of hotel and restaurant operations. Then, you’re off to internship for a 6-month adventure in the real-world, where you will test your skills and develop your sense of independence and professionalism in a hospitality workplace.
