In 1992, when the members of the AIM team, all hospitality professionals, and also from Cornell's Master program, opened the school, the only program recognized in France for the Baccalauréat (High-School Diploma) graduates was the BTS Hôtellerie. The subjects taught were limited to cooking, room service, reception desk, and housekeeping procedures, including some bookkeeping.
After the launch of the innovative AIM program, inspired particularly by that of Cornell Hotel School, with the Bachelor title*, almost all private establishments in France and in Europe, including Switzerland (about 4 years later, after AIM), added “Bachelor” to their schools.
Did they all adopt the content of the program it covered? That’s another question!
*AIM is the very first institution in Europe (EU) to offer the title Bachelor to its students.
At AIM, students always benefit from an education, validated, among others, by the professional certifications of the American Hotel organization AHLEI, which facilitates in obtaining management positions, in particular, in palaces and large international hotels.
AIM will be happy, at the student's simple request, to cover 50% of the costs of these courses with a limit of 2 per year, and limited to the time that they are a full time student at AIM.
