Studying at César Ritz was an amazing experience in which I got exposed to relevant coursework and relevant internship opportunities at the heart of Europe. The only downside of my learning experience is the lack of opportunities post-graduation however the exposure of getting this degree after graduation is enormous but outside of Europe.
It was a diverse program, as i engaged with the double degree with Washington State University and we did courses like Food Chemistry, Calculus, Statistic, Law, Psychology, International business to mention a few and i graduated with double degree both from Switzerland and Washington State University.
It’s a nice university but they oversell their image to what’s here
