This Dual Degree in International Business in Hotel and Tourism Management from César Ritz Colleges Switzerland is in partnership with Washington State University. Students combine practical courses and management subjects with the development of a personalized business plan in the final year. Qualifications have been designed to deliver an appropriate blend of skills and knowledge in academic disciplines, professional hospitality and tourism management and personal and social development.

The joint Bachelor programme in partnership with Washington State University offers students the fantastic opportunity to graduate with both a César Ritz Colleges Bachelor degree in Hotel and Tourism Management and a Washington State University Bachelor degree in Hospitality Business Management. From the first day at César Ritz Colleges, students will study for both the César Ritz Colleges and Washington State University Bachelor degree. 

The Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Business Management is awarded by Washington State University (WSU) and requires students to achieve a minimum of 2.50 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) after Term 4 to apply for this qualification. The same CGPA is required at the end of Term 8 to be awarded the WSU degree. Those who do not have a 2.50 CGPA but are above the César Ritz pass grade will be awarded a Bachelor of International Business in Hotel and Tourism Management.

  • Limited partial scholarships available.
  • Every student studying at the institution for 6 months and more is eligible for a paid internship (~2,000CHF) in Switzerland of up to 6 months.
