The year 2020 will stay in all our memories, with the worldwide Covid pandemic impacting upon each and every one of us.
Although our school was no different in having to respond rapidly to the ever-changing situation, we are very proud of how our students and staff pulled together to support each other and ensure school life could continue as normally as possible.
And we like to think that IMI's 2020 will also be remembered for continued academic achievement and success...
The year began with yet another rise in the QS World University Rankings, where we were named the 11th best hospitality school globally - a tremendous achievement for a school of our size.
As Covid became more widespread in March, we were proud of how rapidly our Academic and ICT teams implemented both online and hybrid learning options, meaning all our students could continue with their studies uninterrupted (whether they were able to be physically in the classroom or accessing the lesson remotely).
Our BIG Weeks continued – also making use of Microsoft Teams and other virtual tools – meaning all our new students received the special “IMI Family” welcome that our school has become famous for. 2020 was also the year when we introduced our Alumni Coffee Chats – a hugely popular feature where we catch up with our worldwide alumni via an Instagram live video to get an update on both their lives and careers.
Further validation and audit success (see our other Newsletter story for full details) was topped off towards the end of the year when our Swiss Degree programme achieved federal recognition, making IMI the only Swiss family-owned school to be able to offer this qualification in English.
Most of all though, we will remember 2020 proudly for the way in which our students dealt with all challenges faced with good humour, determination and positivity. We certainly hope for a more straightforward 2021, but will always remember the great strength of character shown by our school community over the last 12 months!
