Education: the best institutions in Zurich and beyond offering MBA studies.

IMI University Centre
IMI is the oldest hotel school in central Switzerland. Unlike many hotel schools it is 100 per cent Swiss owned. It is traditionally Swiss, but forward-looking with close links to the industry and welcomes all nationalities.
IMI University Centre’s ethos can be summed up in two words: personality and individuality. It prides itself on the family atmosphere it engenders – just one of the things that draws students from every corner of the globe. Fully accredited, the university is located on the lakeside in Luzern. With the Alps as a backdrop, IMI students are truly pampered.
Its dynamic approach to education ensures that students get to meet the leaders and entrepreneurs of the international business community, contributing substantially to their employability. The relationship with our Careers Service does not end with graduation—students become IMI Alumni and receive guidance and networking opportunities throughout their careers.
