Ivyties Banner


IMI International Management Institute Switzerland first opened its doors on July 30th 1991. Our founders Mr. Heinz Bürki, Mr. Tom Maher, and Mr. Rudolf Fischer and 10 staff members welcomed 55 students. Today IMI’s 60 strong staff welcomes around 200 students per semester from all over the world to our Luzern campus.

Our International Hospitality courses in Hospitality, Tourism and Events management at undergraduate level, are all validated by Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK as well as a prestigious MBA in International Hospitality Management.

At postgraduate level, we also offer the IMI Luzern MBA which allows you to specialise in Swiss Hotel Management Operations and is validated by the Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality. This programme allows those with little practical experience the chance to complete a professional practice placement.

All programmes are in English, but you can also learn French and German as a second (third or fourth...) language.
