During the speech from Simon P. Rindlisbacher, he talked about his experiences after graduating from a hotel management school. For more than 16 years he was on the road as General Manager in various hotels and cities in Asia. Among other things, he gave the young hoteliers the following tip: "Never forget where you come from and maintain the network that you have built up here at the school but also in the practical semesters and will continue to expand. Learn every day, be open for new things and never give up. Even if it will sometimes be very hard in the professional world".

Popular managers thanks to practical training
The higher technical college trains managers for the hotel and catering industry. The "Dipl. Hôtelière-Restauratrice / dipl. Hôtelier-Restaurateur HF" course is recognised by the Swiss Confederation and classified as tertiary education. The degree is highly regarded in the industry because it teaches a wide range of management skills in strategic and operational topics as well as sound and comprehensive practical knowledge. This high level of professional competence opens doors to exciting careers, both nationally and internationally. But no end is without a new beginning - SSTH students can return to Passugg in the future to deepen their education with the EHL Bachelor.
