Our Students

Studierende

Die Studenten kommen aus 70 Nationen mit verschiedenen ethnischen und kulturellen Hintergründen. Sie sprechen verschiedene Sprachen und haben unterschiedliche Ansichten, doch sie alle haben eins gemeinsam: das Ziel, eine anspruchsvolle Karriere in der internationalen Hotellerie zu starten. Durch diesen kulturellen Austausch und das Engagement in einer multikulturellen Gemeinschaft, erhalten Schülerinnen und Schüler bleibende Eindrücke, die entscheidend sind für Sie als zukünftige Führungskräfte.

Language

The language of instruction in all courses is English. However, students also learn German and/or French as the knowledge of several languages is an important asset in the hospitality industry. Other language options including Spanish, Italian and Mandarin are available upon demand. Good knowledge of one of the official spoken languages of Switzerland will also help students in finding a suitable industry placement in either the German-, French- or the Italian-speaking parts of the country.

Dress Code

B.H.M.S. mirrors a professional business environment where staff and students observe the rules of good manners and appropriate behavior. All students adhere to the business dress code that is common in the hospitality industry. 

Instead of a formal uniform, B.H.M.S. students are expected to wear a business dress which they are allowed to bring from their home country. This should consist of a dark cloth suit, shirt and tie for our male students and for the ladies, dark cloth pants or skirt with a blouse and jacket and dark closed shoes. In winter, it is, of course, possible to add warm clothes according to the rules.

Culinary students are provided with full Chef uniforms to undertake their practical classes (loan).
