Swiss Education Group plans to launch a research project on the impact of Covid-19 on the hospitality sector and how certain players in the industry are adapting. The findings of this important research, in collaboration with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and other leading Swiss industry partners, will be included in the curriculum of SEG schools.
When Covid-19 brought the restaurant industry to a grinding halt, 21-year old Lavr Kozlov, a Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland alumnus, left his head chef position at a restaurant in Austria, to return to his home city of Moscow. When he realised restaurants wouldn’t be opening anytime soon, he came up with a creative new business plan: an online cooking course called “Chef’s Voice”.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic, all five schools under the umbrella of Swiss Education Group have acted quickly to respond to this unprecedented situation, adapt accordingly, and ensure the safety and well-being of all staff and students.

Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland will host its very first online culinary competition, Cook ‘N’ Battle, in a positive twist to students’ current inability to travel to campus. Highlighting a local ingredient from where they live, participants will be challenged to surpass themselves and push their skills to the limit of culinary excellence.
