Happy Birthday IMI!

04 October 2016

Last week we celebrated IMI's 25th Anniversary with a special party on campus where we welcomed back many alumni and friends of the school...

2016 marks a very special year for IMI as we celebrate 25 years of offering excellence in hospitality management education. 

First opening its doors on the 30th July 1991 and welcoming 55 students, IMI has since gone from strength to strength with a diverse international student body and a reputation for both academic excellence and personal care and attention.

To commemorate this landmark, we held a special Anniversary Reunion on the 28th and 29th September where we welcomed alumni, special guests and visitors from all corners of the globe. 

In the beautiful Swiss sunshine, our guests enjoyed the best of Swiss cuisine and hospitality, plus they were regaled with a graduation ceremony marking the achievements of our 2016 graduates.  Of course, no birthday celebration would be complete without a cake which was presented to IMI President Mr. Heinz Bürki and his daughter, and member of the Board of Directors, Ms. Isabelle Bürki, at the end of the celebrations.

The two days of activities were a fitting tribute to IMI’s history with the very best of hospitality, internationalism and family spirit on display.

The efforts of our staff and students to prepare for and host such wonderful events were truly remarkable. We would like to express our gratitude to every alumni and guest who came to join us to mark this occasion. As a school we pride ourselves on our sense of family and to welcome so many members of our extended family back was a real honour and privilege.

At 25 years young, we now look forward to many more years of hard-work, laughter, friendships and fun secure in the knowledge that the IMI family will be with us every step of the way…
