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.
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.
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..
