Why study Hotel and Business Management at BHMS Lucerne

Why Study at BHMS?

Ideal Location in the heart of Luzern City

The BHMS campus buildings and student residences are located in the heart of the beautiful city of Luzern, within walking-distance from each other and from the city center itself.  Living and studying in the heart of this unique city enable students to enjoy the urban qualities as well as the charm and exclusivity of Luzern.

Full Speed Bachelor of Arts Degree

BHMS (together with The Robert Gordon University) has designed one of the fastest track BA Degrees in Switzerland without compromising its educational quality.  At BHMS, students can achieve a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management in 18 months of study plus an 18 month internship period.  A similar education in another Swiss hotel management school would require 24 months of study plus a 12 month internship period.  This gives BHMS graduates an advantage of studying 6 months less while gaining 6 additional months of paid work experience in Switzerland.

Unique 5-week term system

BHMS has implemented a unique system of education by dividing a 20-week semester into four mini-terms of 5 weeks each. This system enables students to focus on only 3 to 4 academic subjects at a time instead of the usual 8-10 subjects in other Swiss hotel schools. As a result, BHMS students are able to complete 12-14 academic subjects within a 6 month period without overloading them.

Guaranteed Internship & Graduate Placement

Industry training is an integral part of the study program at BHMS. During every academic year, students are required to carry out a 4-6 month industry training period in a hotel or a restaurant approved by BHMS. In addition, BHMS works with numerous international placement agencies that specialize in placing graduate students in Europe, Asia and North America. A Career and Placement Counselor assists students with placements in hotels and restaurants in Switzerland and abroad.
