Academic Subjects And Descriptors

The ICHM course of “One Program, Two Degrees” has been specially designed to give its graduates the competitive edge in the international hospitality environment.

Students can choose to conclude their studies upon completion of their Bachelor of Business (Hospitality Management) degree. They may, however, choose to undertake the more advanced Bachelor of International Hotel Management (Swiss Hotel Association) which provides additional internationally relevant and emerging business management knowledge and skills.

Below is a breakdown of the Program subjects and descriptions; some subjects in later years may require successful completion of subjects in previous academic semesters (pre-requisite subjects).
