HTMi Switzerland Dubai, Dubai’s newest hospitality and tourism school, announced the formal agreement with the Hotel and Tourism Management Institute (HTMi) Switzerland to bring the highest quality of Swiss educational programs and experiences to UAE’s hospitality and tourism sector.
Set to open this month, HTMi Switzerland Dubai campus boasts contemporary new facilities and cutting-edge programs for both Emirati and international students. Offering year-long courses with Swiss accreditation as well as a variety of short courses, graduates, industry veterans and those switching careers are invited to apply to HTMi Switzerland Dubai, where training will centre around the UAE’s bid to become the world’s number one tourist destination by 2025.
With a wide range of the HTMi Switzerland Dubai certified courses in the hospitality and tourism sector, multiple opportunities for fresh graduates and skilled individuals to enlist on professional and vocational education programs with practical internships in the UAE are on offer.
Courses begin this month, led by teaching staff with both international and UAE-based experience to empower students with applied, hands-on learning, thus advancing student career opportunities.
Emirati graduate studies commence in April with HTMi’s Diploma course in Hospitality Management, the first ever Swiss-Certified UAE National Diploma. Simultaneously, the first Cabin Crew training program will begin, preparing international students for multiple career options in the aviation and airline industries. Later in the year, HTMi Switzerland Dubai will launch its Diploma in International Hotel and Tourism Management, Higher Diploma in International Culinary Arts and Diploma in Restaurant Management programs, with training commencing in August 2019.
Ahmad Bin Byat, managing partner of HTMi Switzerland Dubai, said: “Our training focuses on the future of hospitality in the region, teaching specific guest-experience techniques required for the evolution of the industry. In the last two years, the UAE has witnessed the opening of numerous theme parks and tourist attractions, along with continuing building projects to deliver an additional 40,000 hotel rooms in anticipation of Expo 2020. This rapid development requires numerous new roles to be created to ensure those projects succeed, highlighting the need for a highly-trained hospitality workforce.”
