International School, International Staff

17 June 2020

As an international school we welcome students from around the globe, but this multicultural mix is also found in our faculty and staff...

The multi-cultural makeup of the IMI campus is a key factor in making our student experience so special.

Living and studying with classmates from around the world gives our students much greater cultural awareness and better prepares them for the international nature of the hospitality industry.

However, this broad international mix is not exclusive to our students - as of June 2020, of the 49 full-time faculty and staff, we had a spread of 26 different nationalities.

Representing five continents, Switzerland led the way (as you might expect) with seven staff members, followed by the United Kingdom (five), Italy (four) and the United States and Germany (both three). 

The value of having a diverse staff on campus cannot be overestimated. From a student perspective, it increases the chances of them having someone from their own country (or, if not, very close by) should they wish to speak to someone in their own language or discuss something specific to their culture or tradition.

From an academic perspective, it means we can offer students a holistic overview of different international hospitality traditions and practices, meaning that when they come to enter the career place, they are fully prepared for different demands and expectations.

Last but not least, it makes for a much more interesting and enjoyable atmosphere on campus, with the possibility to discover something new every day!

The below graph shows the nationality mix of IMI's full-time staff and faculty as of June 2020.
