If you are looking for studies abroad and would like to pursue an international career, you should consider studying Hospitality & Hotel Management. But does it mean you will become a hotelier? Not necessarily. The service industry, whose Hospitality is part of, is diverse, and includes many sectors such as banking, real estate, finance, insurance, marketing, and luxury. In fact, a growing percentage of graduates in Hospitality & Hotel Management are absorbed by companies outside the hotel industry or assume positions not directly related to the hotel operations.
Hospitality Management, on the other hand, also provides a wide range of career paths. By choosing a hospitality management course, students and graduates develop important soft skills, which are in demand right now by employers in every sector of the services industry.
A recent survey reported in the FinancialTimes revealed the five skills rated as most important by leading employers and they are related to Communication, Cultural Awareness, Ability to solve complex problems and Leadership, all skills acquired during a study program in Hospitality.
Recruiters agree that many students coming out of traditional business schools may not have acquired these soft skills.
At BHMS, we have tailored our Bachelor's and Master's Degrees programs to ensure that students can meet the requirements of the services industry. Some of the programs may include courses like human resource management, business communication, sales & marketing and personal development.
BHMS is one of the very few schools officially recognized by the government as "Swiss Federal College of Higher Education" - all the courses take place in English and during the study period, students can improve their German, French or Italian language skills which will prove to be very helpful at their internship placement.
In addition to this, internships expose the BHMS students to the working environment during the studies. The Industry Training, part of the hotel school curriculum, allow students to test the knowledge they've earned in class and gain experience from the international working environment while developing further skills - something that gives them a significant advantage for their first career step.
Finally, you are already aware that Switzerland is the birthplace and worldwide leader in the Hospitality management education.
The country is filled with breathtaking landscapes and is very safe for students.
As Switzerland exploits its location at the heart of Europe, BHMS students have an advantage of traveling easily all around Europe.
