Das International College of Hotel Management (ICHM), die Partnerschule von hotelleriesuisse in Adelaide, Australien, bietet seit diesem Sommer einen zweijährigen Master of International Hotel Management an, der von hotelleriesuisse unterstützt wird. Mit dem Vollzeitstudiengang kann zwei Mal jährlich, jeweils im Januar und im Juli, gestartet werden. Absolventen der Hotelfachschule Thun sowie der SSTH - Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality werden zum Masterstudium direkt zugelassen und können sich zudem Fächer anrechnen lassen (verkürzte Studiendauer). Das ICHM präsentiert den neuen Master wie folgt:

The course is designed to provide participants with the opportunity to develop advanced knowledge and cognitive skills to understand and manage international hotel operations at a senior level, providing leadership in decision making processes and managing change.

Whilst the course focus is on international hotels, participants could choose to undertake their career paths in other areas of the international tourism and hospitality industry.

 Graduates of Bachelor Degree programs in Switzerland, and those who have completed the HF Diploma (EQF Level 6) such as Hotelfachschule Thun or SSTH Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality are permitted to directly enter the Masters program. 

The ICHM program comprises nine core subjects and three electives delivered over eighteen months; plus a final professional practice and research semester of six months in industry so the total course has a two-year duration.  But hotel school graduates such as those from Thun (or ICHM itself) can shorten the course by claiming credit in up to 4 subjects.

This gives the student significant flexibility: two years study in Australia, and access to #485 Post Study Work Visa (work in Australia for two years); or return to your home country after only 12 months and undertake the research project outside Australia. 

For students who commence in July ICHM is offering a scholarship based on English ability -15% for IELTS 7.0 (no band under 6.5) and 10% for IELTS 6.5 (no band under 6.0).

Just as ICHM’s undergraduate programs have prepared students for careers in hotels in Australia and around the world, the Masters degree has a strong hotel industry focus.  Applicants who did not study hotel management in their undergraduate program will study Food and Beverage and Accommodation subjects, ensuring they have knowledge of these important departments in hotels.

The six-month research project, where students work in a hotel in Australia or elsewhere, forms part of the program. 

The masters degree is badged by the Swiss Hotel Association, once again showing their support for and endorsement of ICHM and its students. The Masters Degree takes all the elements of ICHM professionalism, industry focus and high academic standards to the next level. It will fast track students to leadership positions.

ICHM is owned by Charles Darwin University (CDU), and is working with CDU to develop an online Masters in January 2020.
