Welcome to BHMS, Business and Hotel Management school!

BHMS is one of the world's leading hospitality schools, located in the heart of Lucerne, a vibrant and beautiful city in Switzerland.

BHMS Swiss Education Concept

The four «pillars» at BHMS are education, internship, personal development, and international career placement. Each pillar plays a key role in our mission to provide the growing global hospitality and service management industry with quality employees, who are eager to demonstrate their management potential.

Quality academic education, as the first pillar, gives students the academic and theoretical knowledge. Internship, as the second pillar, allows students to apply the knowledge into practice on the job. Personal and professional development, the third and most important pillar, provides students with soft and social skills and discipline that motivates students, guides them, strengthens them and ultimately drives them to succeed.

The successful outcome of all three pillars leads to the fourth pillar, a successful career placement. BHMS has its own placement company «Masterwork» which assists all graduates to gain their first international career position.

What Makes Us Special

Fast Track British BA Degree:

The BHMS Business & Hotel Management School, together with Robert Gordon University, has designed a fast track BA Degree in Switzerland without compromising quality. At the BHMS Business & Hotel Management School students can achieve a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management or Global Business Management in 18 months of study plus 18 months of paid work experience in Switzerland or abroad.

Hands-on British MBA Dual Degree:

The BHMS Business & Hotel Management School, together with the York St. John University, offers an MBA Degree for young professionals to enhance their managerial knowledge and capabilities through applied learning using case studies, group work, and real business examples.

Transferable Skills:

Transferable skills are skills and abilities that are relevant and useful across different areas of life: socially, professionally and at school. Teamwork, leadership, personal motivation, organization, time management, listening, written and verbal communication, as well as information technology, are in the DNA of the BHMS education system.

Unique 5-week term system:

At the BHMS Business & Hotel Management School, we have 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 4 to 5 academic subjects at one time instead of the usual 8-10 subjects in other hotel schools.

In the Heart of Lucerne City:

The BHMS Business & Hotel Management School has four campus sites located in the heart of Lucerne city; Lakefront Centre, City Campus, Sentipark, and Baselstrasse 57. The City Campus, the main student residence, is situated right off the historical part of Lucerne, by the famous river Reuss.

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.
