Prepare for success

The most effective leaders are those who are open and committed to the principles of life-long learning and ongoing reflection. Through promoting this approach, the César Ritz Colleges’ Leadership Programme helps to prepare you for a leadership role in your career in hotel and tourism management.


Leadership is something that can be learned, as well as being a natural attribute. The Leadership Programme provides insights in to what it takes to get to the top and techniques that ensure you stay there! Students learn, develop and effectively apply the technical and business skills needed to succeed, as well as the attitudes and standards that make our graduates so successful.


Get a leading edge

The Leadership Programme delivers a complete set of skills that enables you to confidently achieve the goal of becoming a leader in your chosen field.


Many of the Leadership Programme components are embedded in the main course framework, however there are additional modules including Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity Training, as well as developing networking and mentoring skills.


Our Leadership Programme runs throughout the entire course, requiring students to achieve specified outcomes each term.


Real-life projects

Academic Director, Professor John Swarbrooke, has developed a new initiative within the Leadership Programme that gives students the chance to undertake real-life consultancy projects requested by hotels.


The first of these projects was launched when César Ritz Colleges was asked by an Icelandic hotel for help to develop a new marketing strategy. Based on its success, consequent projects have been undertaken, such as assistance in developing a luxury property in Zermatt, with César Ritz students playing a critical role.


Two cosmopolitan campuses

If you are the kind of person that embraces different cultures, peoples, customs and etiquettes then you will be excited by what César Ritz Colleges Switzerland has to offer.


The hotel and tourism industry is, by its very nature, cosmopolitan, requiring workers to adapt to an international environment. César Ritz graduates work all over the world, building their careers at home or abroad, where dealing with colleagues, customers and partners of varying nationalities is always a key requirement.


At César Ritz Colleges Switzerland this internationalism begins on campus, where over 60 nationalities are represented.


So, in a typical day you can lunch with classmates from South America, play soccer with German colleagues, share a tutorial with students from Kenya and China, chat with your roommate from Australia and spend the evening with your Swiss friends!


Through interacting with your peers you are encouraged to look at life in a different way, learning the ways of other nationalities. This multicultural environment at César Ritz Colleges offers a unique learning atmosphere, fostering true cultural awareness.
