The SwissStudyPlus Program (SwissStudy+) is a study and internship experience designed specifically for students in the School of Hospitality Leadership (SHL) within the Driehuas College of Business. This program is open to SHL students ONLY. International training is quickly becoming essential within the field of hospitality and Switzerland has emerged as a leading location to gain such experience. DePaul partners with César Ritz Colleges Switzerland (CRCS), an international hotel and business management school with three campuses throughout the country, on a program that fits the requirements for hospitality leadership majors and minors and provides high quality international training for their future careers. In this incredibly flexible program, students choose to study in Switzerland for either one or two three-month quarters, and they may follow up two quarters of study at CRCS with a six-month paid internship in the lodging or foodservice industry. They may also base themselves at different CRCS campuses in each term of the program, combining experiences in French-speaking and German-speaking areas of the country. Students participating in SwissStudy+ are invited to study with world-famous instructors, explore Europe outside of classes, and even add an international work experience to their résumés.
