Hospitality training provides up-and-coming hoteliers with the perfect conditions to start a successful business. With the desire to have a fulfilling career, it is important for young people to explore the health and wellness avenues for major career opportunities.
César Ritz Colleges Switzerland, part of the Swiss Education Group, has created two new master's degrees that are dedicated to the hospitality industry. The college, which is the largest provider of private hospitality management education in Switzerland, has five schools stretched across seven beautiful campuses that offer tailor-made professional courses.
Studies will be undertaken at the college's Brig Campus, which only houses postgraduate students. The surroundings showcase the best that Switzerland has to offer, with a large variety of outdoor activities for every season. Students will also be able to integrate the health and wellness knowledge that they gain into daily life at the campus.
Branching out into the hospitality industry is a daunting task, especially in an age where guests can easily write negative reviews for potential customers to see on widely used websites. On top of this, the sector faces new challenges from competitors, such as Airbnb, that offer alternatives to hotels. These factors make it all the more important for students to have the right qualifications.
The master's in hospitality, health and well-being uses a contemporary curriculum to teach aspiring hospitality managers about the concept of well-being, which has become a significant trend in recent years; with technological advances and demanding workloads, 21st-century burnout is cited as the reason behind this trend's rise. The college's challenging hotel management degree and training programme will satisfy the academic, professional and personal needs of candidates that seek top management careers, in and out of the hospitality industry. Covering future trends is an essential part of the course, where students will learn about creating a positive employee and guest experience, and developing an understanding of the wellness tourism industry, among other subjects.
The master's in entrepreneurship for the global hospitality and tourism industry uses a modern curriculum to teach students about starting their own business. Postgraduates will also acquire essential skills, including crisis and risk management, and business sustainability. Consultancy projects are a vital part of the degree, where students conduct market research and produce a business plan for a tourism or hospitality-related business. Their work will include analytical, strategic and financial assessments, in order to ensure that graduates will be ready to launch, and maintain a sustainable and profitable business in a challenging market.
Both degrees will be accredited by the University of Derby, a leading university for hospitality management education.
