Since 1966, SSTH Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality has prepared young people for their professional career, with a particular focus on hospitality and gastronomy. All of our programs, at all educational levels, have a strong emphasis on practical experience. Thanks to their well-founded knowledge and practical work experience, our graduates are immediately employable and ready to accept responsibility.

Throughout their SSTH education, our students are in demand as personnel in the hospitality industry. With their competent service know-how and their courteous and efficient manner, our students support local hotels at special events and banquets. And it is not without pride when we state that SSTH is the only hotel school which takes part each year serving participants of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Alongside external events, students also have the opportunity to be involved in banquets and other activities organized in the school hotel. These can be for up to 200 guests, or even over 2000, as is the case with our annual Food Festival. Taking place each spring, the Food Festival attracts visitors from far and wide to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere filled with music and shows, and accompanied by the multi-cultural dishes prepared and served by our students.

All of this practical experience is the foundation for the management skills that our graduates are well known for. As much as the first two semesters are filled with operational experience, the final two semesters set the students in supervisory and management tasks that are invaluable for understanding and learning the skills needed for their future careers.

With only around 300 students, personal contact within our close-knit community of students, staff, and faculty is one of the main strengths of SSTH. We set a high value on our learning environment, which involves a combination of trust, respect and professionalism.
