Hospitality - Tourism – Leadership – Entrepreneurship - Heritage

THE CÉSAR RITZ PHILOSOPHY

Our programs are based on the teachings of César Ritz, the world-renowned Swiss hotelier and founder of the famous Ritz hotels. Widely recognised as the pioneer of luxury hotels, the pillars of luxury, excellence and service are worldwide standards that are passed on to each of our students.

A SWISS JOURNEY

Bachelor students can choose to start their studies in French-speaking Le Bouveret or German-speaking Lucerne, spending their third and final year at the Brig campus.

HOSPITALITY WITH A PLAN

Seize the opportunity to explore the world of hospitality and graduate with a ready-to-implement business plan. The final year of the Bachelor degree is focused on the creation of a viable business plan. Over a nine month period, create a springboard for your future career opportunities.

Discover the César Ritz Legacy

Born in 1850, as the thirteenth son of a large family from the Swiss Alps, the now legendary César Ritz had to face multiple challenges and setbacks in his career but managed to overcome these to write hospitality history. He went on to become the pioneer of true luxury hospitality known as “The King of Hoteliers, and The Hotelier of Kings” with his most prestigious accomplishment being the Ritz Paris, which still carries his name to this day. His relentless focus on guest and customer experience within his teams was made clear in the famous phrase: “The customer is never wrong”.
 
Just the way César Ritz was able to partner and excel with the famous French chef Auguste Escoffier, our students also have the privilege to collaborate with and share their campuses with our artists of the culinary, pastry, and chocolate arts, who in turn will become future chef entrepreneurs around the globe.

HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT PROGRAMMES

Bachelor:

The programme of the Bachelor of International Business in Hotel and Tourism Management (recognised by Canton of Valais) has a strong professional focus for students seeking a career in international hospitality and tourism management.

Students combine practical courses and management subjects with the development of a personalized business plan in the final year.

Qualifications have been designed to deliver an appropriate blend of skills and knowledge in academic disciplines, professional hospitality and tourism management and personal and social development.  

The joint Bachelor programme in partnership with Washington State University offers students the fantastic opportunity to graduate with both a César Ritz Colleges Bachelor's degree in Hotel and Tourism Management and a Washington State University Bachelor's degree in Hospitality Business Management. From the first day at César Ritz Colleges, students will study for both the César Ritz Colleges and Washington State University Bachelor's degree.
The Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Business Management is awarded by Washington State University (WSU) and requires students to achieve a minimum of 2.50 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) after Term 4 to apply for this qualification.

The same CGPA is required at the end of Term 8 to be awarded the WSU degree.

Those who do not have a 2.50 CGPA but are above the César Ritz pass grade will be awarded a Bachelor of International Business in Hotel and Tourism Management.

Master:

The Masters of Arts in Entrepreneurship for the Global Hospitality and Tourism Industry provides a contemporary curriculum preparing graduates for employment and work in today’s global environment, achieved in an accelerated 22-week academic programme.

Accredited by the University of Derby, students will graduate ready to launch and maintain a sustainable and profitable business within a challenging global environment. Students will graduate with a:
  • Master of Arts in Entrepreneurship for the Global Hospitality and Tourism Industry awarded by University of Derby, UK
  • Master of International Business in Entrepreneurship for the Global Hospitality and Tourism Industry awarded by César Ritz Colleges Switzerland (recognised by Canton of Valais)
Successful graduates will have the opportunity to achieve in a wide range of stimulating and fulfilling careers. In the current economic climate, intense competition within the hospitality and tourism industry has led to the emergence of global companies that demand a high level of innovation and commitment to the job and who require high-calibre graduates to ‘make things happen’ – these postgraduate students will amply fulfill these criteria. Graduates can go on to set up their own businesses but are very likely to have to demonstrate intrapreneurial knowledge and skills within organizations where innovation and the necessity to work smarter are some of the key skills required in the global marketplace.

The MA in Entrepreneurship for the Global Hospitality and Tourism Industry gives a new perspective to the vital role and effective practice of entrepreneurship in one of the most dynamic, unpredictable and fast-changing industry sectors in the world. Entrepreneurship deals with studying the tools to take up a business idea/concept, source the resources to turn it into reality and make that idea into a viable product or service whereas the concept of corporate entrepreneurship or intrapreneurship refers to the development of new ideas and opportunities in established businesses leading to change. This focus is on developing new business models where the entrepreneur must manage innovation, which often involves risk-taking and a legal understanding, in accomplishing their new ideas/concepts.
