BA Leadership Visit

19 May 2021

Our BA (Hons) Hospitality Leadership and Innovation students visited nearby Seehotel Kastanienbaum as part of their capstone project work...

Leadership is a core skill that we teach in all our degree programmes here at IMI.
 
We are training our students to become future leaders in the hospitality (and many other diverse industries) so the ability to manage both their own workload and that of a team is crucial.
 
One way in which we expose our students to the challenge of leadership is through the capstone project work undertaken by our BA (Hons) students following the Hospitality Leadership and Innovation module
 
The students were taken on a site visit to the nearby Seehotel in Kastanienbaum where they were tasked with creating an innovative new concept for the hotel (which could incorporate the rooms, restaurant, event and outdoor space).
 
They are then required to pitch their concept to the hotel's director when he visits the school and offer a full explanation of their concept, the costings and the implementation.
 
This project really tests the students time-management, organisation and research skills as well as their ability to present their ideas in a clear and engaging manner. It is also a great way of connecting them with a professional network here in Switzerland while leading an authentic industry project in their local community.
 
We can't wait to see the concepts the students come up with which, in the best case scenario, may even be implemented by Seehotel and bring a real benefit to a local business.
