Why choose César Ritz Colleges?
3 campuses, 2 university partners, 1 business plan competition
César Ritz Colleges Switzerland is comprised of three campuses: the historic centre of Lucerne, lakeside at Le Bouveret, and up in the mountains at Brig. Bachelor students can choose between Le Bouveret and Lucerne for their first two years, before moving up to Brig for their final year. All Master students are based full time at our Brig campus. At Cesar Ritz Colleges, we provide our students with a truly Swiss journey through hospitality education. Our programmes give students the best of both worlds: a ‘Ritzy’ Swiss hospitality education in campuses drenched in history and tradition combined with an American/British approach to business management and entrepreneurship.
Their studies lead them to a fully elaborated, realistic business plan that is ready to be implemented after graduation. Close industry partnerships with global industry leaders, including the Ritz Paris hotel and UBS, in combination with strong university partners in the USA (Washington State University) and the UK (University of Derby), enable graduates to confidently implement their strategies.
As a member school of Swiss Education Group, all of our students are part of one of the world's largest hospitality alumni networks and have exclusive access to the International Recruitment Forum (held in Montreux) twice a year. As an extra bonus, Le Bouveret and Lucerne students share their campus with Culinary Arts Academy students, another of Swiss Education Group's member schools. This offers all Bachelor students the chance to organise events and develop their hospitality skills alongside future chef entrepreneurs.
