I enjoyed my time at IMI a lot, I loved meeting people from so many different cultures. It is great that IMI is not too big, the classes had the perfect size, so that the teachers were actually able to pay attention to everyone in class. It was a very work-intensive time but I learned a lot about myself and I gained a good theoretical basis, which I then could deepen and expand through several internship experiences.
My first position was as a Finance Futura Management Trainee with Starwood (at the Le Méridien Parkhotel in Frankfurt, Germany) which is a great programme to pave your way for a career in Finance. After that I worked as the Assistant Director of Finance for the Sheraton Complex in Zürich.
I have decided to leave hospitality for the time being and to further pursue my career in the eld of Controlling rather than Accounting. I am working for a retail company at the moment (HUGO BOSS) which is a great challenge and where I am learning so many new things every day.

Relocating to IMI Switzerland from a reputed university in Canada was the best decision I have made in my entire life…
While residing at IMI, the environment was what impressed me the most. IMI maintained exceptional standards of professionalism at all times. From polishing shoes to choosing the right words while expressing opinions, the staff at IMI upheld strict regulations. I learnt how to meet deadlines while managing time, maintain tidiness and more importantly, network with superiors and colleagues in a friendly, yet professional manner.
The courses and internships offered through IMI helped me reach my short term goals quite comfortably. From an overall point of view, I am very pleased to have studied at an institute like IMI and I am extremely grateful to my teachers and superiors.
