How to save money on International Hospitality studies

The hotel and service industry has become one of the largely sought after industry these days since the spurt of Tourism in the modern age. Professional Hotel Management Qualifications have become a requisite to get jobs in reputed properties.

Switzerland is known as the birthplace of Hotel Management Education & Swiss Hotel Schools is among the most reputed Institutions. They have good reason too. Swiss hotel schools are the most acclaimed in the world. The first ever Hotel School was started in

Switzerland hundred and twenty years ago. Since then a lot of good schools have come into being. Now the students have more options than ever in the case of selecting a school for education and training. The advantages include better recognition, higher pay, and a faster growth in career.

The only fault one can find with the educational institutes in Switzerland is the fee structure, which may seem exorbitant at first look. The Swiss Franc or Euro is stronger than most currencies of the world & thus when you convert the fee to your local currency the fees look astronomical. As for the regular person, to pay the fee, he/she might have to take huge loans, where interests might be too high, due to the sheer volume of the loan.

Here is a suggestion for Barodians to reduce the international education expenditure. In search of International students, Swiss Hotel Management colleges have tied up with Jindal School of Hotel Management (JSHM). JSHM provides same standards of education at local prices; this makes the course affordable to students. The best part of this system is that a student studying in an affiliated college gets internationally transferable credits. What this education also does is that a student may be able to do further higher education at a lower price since a part of the course has already

been completed or scholarships are available. This truly presents students with the opportunity of attaining international exposure in the field of hospitality, it is simply invaluable!

How to select a good hotel management college

If you have opted to pursue hospitality studies, choosing a good hotel management college to join is a crucial decision. The options present are plenty. You can choose to study in your own country or in a foreign land. You also have to worry about the fee structure & living expenses in an alien land. However, the most crucial part is finding out the quality of the school.

The general parameters used to rank an educational institute are:

  • Quality of course content
  • Affiliations & recognition of various universities
  • Quality of faculty
  • Student-teacher ratio
  • Classrooms, facilities etc.

Before deciding on the hotel school, one has to answer the question; “why am I doing this course”. Once you get the answer to that question, it is very easy to find out if the school is suitable for you.

Let’s look at an illustration: If your aim is to be employed as a chef in a reputed hotel after finishing the course, the most important criteria to select your college would be to check:

  • The quality of food production laboratories.
  • Number of alumni in kitchens across the world.

The above two factors are in fact the most important for any top hospitality school. Since you will end up spending more hours doing practical than studying theory, the equipment & quality of the laboratories will be a very important factor to rank the hospitality school.

It is said that the proof of the pudding is in eating. The reputation of the school, course content, the quality teaching staff is of no use if the alumni of the college do not end up with successful careers. It will be wise to keep this in mind & speak to few ex-students from the hotel management institute before deciding to enroll there.
