Testimonial *Hotel Management

Lena Dukhovenko
“Joining the Swiss ALPINE Center for my hospitality management higher education was the best decision I made in my life. Throughout the years studying for my Bachelor’s Degree, I have gained the invaluable knowledge and experience to become who I am today  and what I have achieved so far!  Alpine gave me wings to fly. I set out to do my internship in Shanghai and then found myself applying for a position with a leading hotel in New York!  These experiences prepared me for the next move to become a Business Development Executive at  Burj Al Arab, the World’s Most Luxurious Hotel in Dubai!   Now few years after graduation, I miss the ALPINE culture and the family of teachers & friends acquainted throughout the years of studying. Thank you very much for preparing me so perfectly well to the complex working environment of hospitality!”
