Global Reach, Global Success

The Northwood experience carries with it numerous benefits, including the participation in the global, multicultural environment in business right in the classroom. Students from more than 70 countries have attended our institution here in Midland and at our International Program Centers around the world. Yesterday, we celebrated our global presence with the graduation of our students in Switzerland.

Since 2002, Northwood University has partnered with Hotel Institute Montreux (HIM) in Switzerland. More than 1,400 students have enrolled in Northwood’s bachelor of business administration in hotel management since the partnership began, and we are proud to have such success at our International Program Center in that country. Some students even choose to come to Midland to finish their final year in the program and enrich our campus with their personal experiences. Those in the program gain the valuable skills that come from learning about the cultural differences among us and how we all bring a fresh and important perspective to learning.

Graduates of HIM/Northwood University have a proud legacy among some of the most renowned names in hospitality, including: Armani Hotels and Resorts, Crown Plaza, Disney, Inc., Emirates, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, The Ritz-Carlton, Sandals, Shangri La Hotel, Swiss Air, Taj Hotel, Waldorf Astoria and many more. Truly, they are shaping the world of business in their industry.

We are proud to graduate this class of hospitality students, and know the future is bright for all of them!

Have a great weekend!
