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 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 studing 6 months less while gaining 6 additonal 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 one 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 6 month period without overloading them.

Assured 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 graduated students in Europe, Asia and North America. A Career and Placement Counselor assists students with placements in hotels and restaurants in Switzerland and abroad.
