Sports and Extra-Curricular Activities


The campus has its own private multi-use sports court where football, volleyball, basketball and badminton can all be played, as well as a private fitness centre. All students who like to socialise and play team sports after a full day of studies appreciate these facilities.

Brig is located within a one-hour drive from the famous ski resorts of Saas-Fee and Zermatt where students can enjoy a vast array of winter sports. During the summer months there is glacier skiing, horse riding, river rafting, tennis and an outdoor swimming centre for students to enjoy.


The campus is situated in two main buildings in the centre of Brig. The César Ritz Brig Campus is where all academic facilities are located plus the main restaurant. A five-minute walk away is the first-class accommodation called Themis & Xenius, which is the largest of the student dormitories.

The programmes are based on the philosophy of César Ritz, founder of the famous Ritz hotels, who is recognised as the pioneer of luxury hotels. With hard work, innovation, flair, and a touch of class, César Ritz accomplished an unprecedented career in the hospitality industry and rose to legendary status. It is his tradition of luxury, excellence, and service that has set the standards for hotels and restaurants throughout the world.

Bachelor students specialise in hospitality and entrepreneurship, and their Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Business Management degree (in partnership with Washington State University, USA) leads them to develop a fully elaborated, realistic business plan for a successful debut in the hospitality industry.

For graduate students, the Master of Arts in Entrepreneurship for the Global Hospitality and Tourism Industry provides a contemporary curriculum preparing graduates to launch and maintain a sustainable and profitable business within a challenging global environment. The degree is awarded upon submission of a business plan/dissertation.
