I had a great time studying for my postgraduate diploma at IMI. I gained a profound knowledge of how the hospitality services industry works, made good friends and memories that will last a lifetime. The placement opportunity gave me the practice I needed to easily find a job after graduation. The top-notch quality of IMI education gave me the confidence to work with the VIP and VVIP guests at the Swiss First-Class Lounge at Zurich Airport. IMI has connected me to Switzerland, given me an opportunity to explore the country and played a pivotal role in the establishment of my career. Thank you IMI!
