The International Culinary Institute Switzerland (ICI) is the international culinary arm of the prestigious IMI University Centre Luzern. ICI embodies the same qualities that have made IMI the number one choice of hotel school for so many hospitality professionals; a focus on career, a friendly and personalised approach to your education and an unforgettable international experience.
The personal attention you receive at ICI will allow you to perfect your culinary skills from first steps to the latest in fine dining. Today’s industry demands individuality. Our small class sizes allow our future chefs to develop their own flair and creativity. We allow you to cultivate your own style while ensuring that you have the highest quality education to support your dreams.
After every semester of study, you are entitled to an equivalent period of paid practical training which will be organised by our career and internships office. Each placement will build on the one before so our graduates are able to offer the complete package; academic excellence with hands-on practical training. This is what makes our graduates among the most employable of all culinary students.
Programmes are taught on campus in beautiful Kastanienbaum on the shores of Lake Luzern. Our modern kitchens have spectacular views over the lakes and mountains. In such a setting you cannot fail to be inspired.
