TESTIMONIALS

"At the end of the day, if I have problems I can always go to any of my professors and ask for help. This is a major advantage of a smaller school."

Popthon Kirawit

from Thailand , graduated in 2021

What I really like about the Advanced Swiss Diploma is the opportunity to experience everything. In this program I received training in IMI's restaurant, in housekeeping, sustainable tourism and also learned how to do accounting and operations management. These are the skills I will need if I want to own a restaurant or a hotel in the future. At the end of the day, if I have problems I can always go to any of my professors and ask for help. This is a major advantage of a smaller school!
