On 12 April, Ambassador Philipp Stalder hosted a promotional event for hospitality education in Switzerland at his residence. Representatives of Sommet Education presented the well-known Swiss hospitality management schools, Glion and Les Roches. The promotional event was attended by potential students, parents, alumni, hotel representatives and media.

More than 50 students from Azerbaijan have already graduated from from these two hospitality schools. Both institutions offer an international dimension. Besides from Azerbaijan, there are students from all over the world (95 nationalities). Furthermore it is possible to study not only in Switzerland, but also at many other locations abroad. This is possible thanks to Sommet Eductions's well-established global network. Particularly worth mentioning is also the fact that these institutions are very keen on combining theory and practice. As a consequence, a part of the education is deepened through internships in companies. Students further have the opportunity to select from a variety of specialisations, which are also taking current trends in the hospitality sector into account.
