IMI International Management Institute in Switzerland is a unique, private, hospitality school founded in 1991.
We offer a comfortable, family atmosphere on campus and personalised learning support and careers advice
for every student.
At undergraduate level, our courses in international hotel, tourism and events management are validated by
Manchester Metropolitan University and our international culinary arts programme by Oxford Brookes
Our prestigious MBA in international hospitality management is also validated by Manchester Met. and is
designed for those aiming for senior management positions within the industry. At postgraduate level we also
offer our IMI Luzern MBA which allows you to specialise in Swiss Hotel Management Operations or Luxury
Brands and Services Management.
In addition, we offer the Swiss Degree in International Hospitality Management (Diplom HF) which is recognised
by Canton Luzern and taught in English. This programme allows you to undertake three specialist internship
placements alongside three semesters of study. Students graduating from the Swiss Degree can then complete
their BA (Hons) degree in just one semester.
We have deliberately remained small, with a maximum of 200 students per semester. This way our students
can be assured of a highly personalised and individual approach to their learning. All programmes are in
English, but you have the option to learn French or German as a second language.
A qualification from IMI is a stamp of excellence on any CV and will ensure that you are top of the pile for those
first important interviews. Study takes place at our picturesque campus surrounded by the mountains and lakes
of Switzerland. Students are minutes away from the historical city of Luzern with its many shops, cafes, bars
The combination of quality academic teaching, Swiss practical training, excellent industry contacts and
breathtaking scenery are a recipe for success. Our graduates can be found in Senior Management positions all
around the globe. Their success shows that to reach the top it pays to start at the top!
