NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 19 – Alpine Center, the Swiss Business School for Hotel & Tourism Management Education is set to launch a hotel school in Nairobi in May in collaboration with the Boma Hotels Group.

This school will offer world-class training and education at all levels of hospitality operations and management.

An agreement between Boma Hotels Group and Alpine Center, the Swiss Business School for Hotel & Tourism Management was signed on February 14, 2015.

The agreement was facilitated by Rainbow Unlimited, a Swiss-based private company that advises and guides SMEs from Switzerland in their African business ventures, and which acts as strategic partner of Alpine Center Switzerland for Africa.

“The aim of Boma International Hospitality College is to address the current and long term needs of the industry and her graduates. We shall therefore concentrate on training for specialists, not generalists; craftsmen, not “chiefs” and allow enough time for practical training and couching in a top class hotel environment,” said Mugo Maringa, MD Boma Hotels.

“Our graduates will therefore be able to perform beyond their employers’ expectations from day one, and save the employer time and money that is usually spent on training new employees. This will make the graduates the preferred candidates in the job market,” added Mugo.

This school will pave the way for quality education to a broader section of the population, and most importantly will allow well trained Kenyans to stay in the country and help to develop the tourism industry.

The Boma International Hospitality College in collaboration with Alpine Center, the Swiss Business School for Hotel & Tourism Management Education will open its doors on May 25, 2015. There will be two intakes per year, May and January.
