IFTM and Swiss Education Group Join Hand to Offer 【3+1 Dual Bachelor】 Recognition Programme

IFTM has formed a partnership with the Swiss Education Group, one of the world's top tourism and hospitality education providers, to offer a dual bachelor's degree programme. It will enable IFTM students to study for a year in Switzerland and get a bachelor's degree from either of 2 schools within the Swiss Education Group, in addition to a bachelor's degree from IFTM.

The link-up "allows 2 internationally-respected" higher education providers to create a "unique" opportunity to enrich student learning, says IFTM.

The "3+1" scheme is available to those bachelor's degree students enrolled either in the Institute's Hotel Management programme or the Tourism Event Management programme. IFTM participants in the dual bachelor's degree programme can select the year of study, usually second year onwards, that they wish to complete in Switzerland.

Students can attend either the Swiss Hotel Management School, ranked fourth in the world for hospitality and leisure management studies by the latest edition of the QS World University Rankings by Subject; or the César Ritz Colleges Switzerland, seventh in the same ranking.

Another aspect of the partnership is that IFTM students on either the Hotel Management programme or the Tourism Event Management programme can also be issued a Swiss Diploma by one of the Swiss Education Group's schools. The diploma option does not require students to go to Switzerland: it is based on the Swiss side recognising the standards of educational excellence in place at IFTM.
