Why Did I Choose SEG?
There are numerous hospitality school across the world, yet I believe SEG is always a great option when planning for overseas studies. In particular, SEG core values that truly differentiate them from other schools.
First and most importantly, SEG is an alliance of four top hospitality schools in Switzerland – the cradle of the hospitality industry, each has different specializations, from entrepreneurship and hotel management to culinary arts and hotel designs. Hence, students are offered a wide array of programs to help them decide which is the most suited for their future career prospects.
The second value of SEG is the world recognized certification, thanks to the partnership with prestigious universities in the U.K and the U.S. As a result, students are awarded with double degrees, either Swiss – U.K or Swiss – U.S. The Hospitality bachelor degree can help enhance the employability of students in the job market; many employers in international hotels and corporates are truly impressed and tend to recruit candidates with international education backgrounds. As well as this, the U.K or U.S degree offers academic accreditation for students accomplishing the higher education level and allows students to apply for government positions.
The third value is the internship and career opportunities. SEG has a vast network of partnerships with 5-star hotels and businesses in Switzerland and internationally, to offer students a valuable amount of time for practical experience at work during their mandatory internship. Moreover, students can participate in SEG’s exclusive International Recruitment Forum to network with employers and apply for their desired positions.
The final value is the opportunity to learn the extra language. Students can choose either French or German, both languages are commonly spoken in Switzerland, as one of the mandatory courses during their studies. This will allow students to work in other countries outside Switzerland, as well enhance their competency at work in the future.
I owe my success to the time spent learning at this excellent hospitality school and recommend it highly to others.
