On behalf of the HTMi Faculty Board, I welcome you to HTMi. Over the next decade, the international hotel and tourism industry is forecast to maintain its position as the worlds largest employer of people, and largest provider of management positions. We are in a truly international industry, which demands an international mix of managers, to reflect the international nature of our hotels. HTMi’s role is to prepare students for a management career in this, the most exciting industry today.
To allow our students to research, study and train in different aspects of the hotel and tourism industry, HTMi Hotel and Tourism Management Institute has focused ‘centres for excellence’. They are: The School of International Hotel and Tourism Management, The International Hospitality Research Centre, The International Centre for Events Management Training and The Centre for Culinary Management (Swiss European Culinary Institute), and the Centre for Career Management. Our teaching faculty are all highly qualified and are fully dedicated to our mission of preparing all students for management positions in the hotel and tourism industry, ranging from trainee managers, middle managers to senior managers.
HTMi is supported by a world-wide support network of offices and international hotel companies. To assist us with our mission, each semester, international hotel companies visit us to recruit on campus. In this they are assisted by the HTMi International Department. Our graduates can be found in the leading hotel companies world-wide.
Welcome to the world of International Hotel and Tourism Management, welcome to HTMi.
