Apicius International School of Hospitality is the first International School of Hospitality in Italy. The city of Florence – a top global destination for millions of tourists and a thriving center of cuisine, wine, hospitality and art – offers an unparalleled natural environment to the School of Hospitality. Founded in 1997, the school is now an internationally respected leader in academic, professional and career oriented education. All of the above academic areas have been developed and expanded with the rapid changes in higher education and the demand for international experiences. The school has grown to offer 1 four-year program, 5 career programs, and postgraduate studies.
Whichever program is chosen, students are immersed in career situations from the first day of class, with courses designed on the basis of real world, hands-on projects and the latest industry input. Strong experiential education opportunities, interdisciplinary activities and active engagement with the community are essential for the school learning strategy.
Each program is designed so that students gain the knowledge and skills to succeed in this sophisticated ever-changing industry.
