B.H.M.S. is one of the world's leading hospitality schools, located in the heart of Lucerne, a vibrant and beautiful city in Switzerland.
The B.H.M.S. campus buildings and student residences are located in the heart of the beautiful city of Lucerne, within walking distance from each other and from the city center itself.
B.H.M.S. 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 as in other Swiss hotel schools. As a result, the B.H.M.S. students are able to complete 12-14 academic subjects within a 6-month period without overloading them.
B.H.M.S. (together with The Robert Gordon University) has designed one of the fastest track BA Degrees in Switzerland without compromising its educational quality. At B.H.M.S. students can achieve a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management in 18 months of studying plus an 18-month paid internship period. A similar education in another Swiss hotel management school would require 24 months of studying plus a 12-month internship period. This gives B.H.M.S. graduates an advantage of studying 6 months less while gaining 6 additional months of paid work experience in Switzerland.
Industry training is an integral part of any study program offered by B.H.M.S. 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 B.H.M.S.. In addition, B.H.M.S. 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.
B.H.M.S. strives to develop future managers and leaders for the hospitality and tourism industry by emphasizing on core competencies, operational training and the uniqueness of every individual.B.H.M.S. hosts no more than 400 students per year so attention is given to each individual skills and traits.
The five B.H.M.S. Student Residences in Guetschstrasse, Baselstrasse, Bernstrasse and Ladelistrasse offer accommodation in modern rooms equipped with a bathroom, a kitchenette, wardrobe, study areas and Wi-Fi.
