Swiss Hotel Association
For more than a century the Swiss Hotel Association (SHA) has set the standards in hotel management education for the rest of the world to follow.
Founded in 1882, the SHA is the official organisation of the hotel industry in Switzerland and in 1893 it opened the world’s first hotel training school – Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne - recognised as the best European style hotel management school. Today the SHA has more than 3000 members from a variety of hotels, hotel chains and restaurants. In 1992, the Swiss Hotel Association played a major role together with the South Australian Government, in the formation of ICHM.
It is only natural that a large number of hotel schools have been established, each placing a slightly different emphasis on various aspects of their courses. Aspiring hotel managers of today are advised to look closely at each course to ensure that their final choice is truly capable of delivering the professional education and training that they seek. ICHM was the first, and is currently the only SHA School outside of Europe. It is now also the only school approved to offer the SHA Bachelor of International Hotel Management. It is the emphasis on contemporary relevance, close links with industry and academic strengths that sets the SHA schools apart.
The Swiss Hotel Association has been working with the International College of Hotel Management for almost nineteen years. And we are pleased that they will now deliver the very first SHA endorsed degree. The quality for which Swiss Hotel Association is famous is delivered in Australia by ICHM, and young men and women can enrol in Adelaide and be confident that they will benefit from our reputation. Many students will also benefit from the possibility of studying in Australia and its proximity to the dynamic Asia Pacific Region. We are extremely proud of this successful partnership.
“One Program, Two Degrees”
ICHM prepares students for management roles based on the acclaimed Swiss Hotel Association (SHA) model that stresses the importance of learning all aspects of the hotel industry. At the completion of their studies students graduate with two degrees, first the Bachelor of Business (Hospitality Management) and then the Bachelor of International Hotel Management (Swiss Hotel Association). The first degree is “nested” inside the Bachelor of International Hotel Management; ICHM is the first institution granted permission by the SHA to offer a degree that they endorse.
Each year at ICHM is comprised of six months full time study, followed by a six month full time industry placement throughout Australia or even overseas! Along with the formal academic study, these industry placements play a vital role in their education as well as their career development, providing a wealth of networking opportunities. By the time they graduate, ICHM graduates can enjoy excellent career prospects with many obtaining highly sought after positions around the world.
