Hotels, resorts, cruise ships, airlines, clubs, restaurants and many of the related 
service sector industries are looking for qualified, multi skilled future managers 
to expand their businesses. The tourism sector is projected to continue growing 
and as it expands, employers around the world increasingly demand qualified and 
highly skilled managers. You have a great opportunity to develop your career in this 
fast growing sector.
Hotel and tourism careers are for young people with strong organizational and 
interpersonal skills. Some of the abilities necessary for a successful career include: 
people and communication skills, patience and tolerance, sales ability, being 
multi-lingual and having a sincere desire to continue learning on-the-job. Hotel 
and tourism careers are for those who enjoy the art of creating a pleasant and 
enjoyable environment for customers as well as for those who love the excitement 
of travel.

The hospitality industry is thriving and showing a double digit growth rate worldwide. Currently, it amounts to $6 billion annually and accounts for 10.6% or 1/10th of the world's GNP if you include travel and tourism. Studies of the WTTC (World Travel Tourism Council) base these figures on 174 countries and estimate that this industry sector generates 221,6 million jobs. It is estimated that by the year 2015, an additional 4.6% growth rate can be expected for the tourism sector overall, offering new and exciting opportunities.

Growth and increasing customer demand makes this industry flourish. Areas such as hotel management, resort management, cruise ship management, the airline industry, private clubs and resorts and many other hospitality sectors have an increased demand for highly qualified and skilled managers that offer them exceptional and multifaceted career opportunities. The tourism industry will offer you a chance to prove your organizational skills and social competencies. Young, communicative women and men, who have a natural talent for customer care, sales and foreign languages in social settings are highly sought after. They love to travel and understand the ideal environment and optimum requirements that international clientele demands. They want to achieve their private and professional goals and know that only a good, sound education and continued, broad-based specialized training will open the doors to a successful graduate career.

With BHMS and their educational partners, you will have the optimum conditions to acquire professional skills and practical experience, to develop and polish your personal profile. Thanks to our know-how and your competencies, you will be well prepared for the high demands guests make in first class service environments.

Student Services

Student Services at BHMS aim to enrich the overall student experience.  Student services offer counseling, personal development, pastoral care, mediation, and a great variety of indoor and outdoor recreation.  Each of the activities offered caters to the students' active and competitive drive for group and individual sports, outdoor adventure, creativity, or artistic needs.  In doing so, BHMS strives to provide students with an assortment of festivities to balance students' academic life while relieving stress, promoting emotional and physical health, and encouraging communication and interaction among the various nationalities present.

The BHMS Student Services Director is present on campus five to six days per week to offer continuous support and counseling.  Activities from crafts and card games to cricket and mountain climbing are offered weekly.  Each student at BHMS is sure to take either a mountain trip or some other fun and healthy amusement with the Student Services Director.

Student activities are important to us. They allow our students to discover Switzerland and different companies in the hospitality industry in Switzerland, but they also include sports and fun. They are not only complementary to the academic studies, but they are also an opportunity for networking. They help creating a community in which it is fun to study. It is during the student activities that many new friendships are forged.

Again and again we are planning activities, where fun, play and sport are in the foreground.
