"BHMS helped me to find myself professionally and personally. With the theoretical part, I got to understand how interesting the hospitality sphere is, while thanks to the practical training, I got to realize that this industry truly suits me. After three years, I acquired my Bachelor of Arts in Hotel and Hospitality Management and on top of that, an unforgettable working experience of 18 months in a restaurant, a boutique hotel and in a big chain hotel.  After having a great foundation, I can surely say that I have a solid platform to start on  my career path." - these are usually the words of gratitude our students send us after completing their studies at BHMS. We are so proud of them.

Here some of our amazing graduates who want to share their personal experiences of studying in BHMS with you:


Carlotta Ceruti, Italy, completed BHMS/RGU MSc Degree

“Before enrolling I spent almost one year checking the beast option among different schools in Switzerland and I finally choose the BHMS in Luzern”, says Carlotta. “Today, almost one year after my graduation, I can still affirm to be sincerely satisfied with my choice. BHMS is, first of all, a multi-cultural school. Students come from various Countries and this gives the opportunity to learn different way of thinking, languages, cultures, religions etc. BHMS teaches its students, not only the regular subjects present in the study plan but also the way how to move in a professional environment. Moreover, the skilled teachers who present the classes have the ability to inspire and share a well-determined knowledge with the students. Finally, the demanding projects and exams that need to be assessed, lead students to do their best and exceed their own expectations. For all these reasons and much more, I am proud to have been a BHMS’s student.  After my graduation from the Msc program, I easily found a job as Receptionist in Switzerland. Despite my interest in this Country, I decided to temporarily move in Gran Canary where I am currently working as Assistant in the Sales department. It is unnecessary to say that the BHMS School gave me the opportunity to obtain the knowledge that nowadays is required in the Business reality”.


Bernice Voo completed the BHMS/CityU MBA Degree in 2013 and presently works as a Project Manager at SWISSCARE, Bern, Switzerland. SWISSCARE is a global insurance solutions for expatriates, travelers and students. «My study years at BHMS has been unique and full of exposure», says Bernice. «Being part of multi-cultural student body, I had to learn and adapt to different traits and habits. And this I think is my surviving secret in a Swiss multinational company like SWISSCARE.»


Apekshit Shah completed the BHMS/CityU MBA Degree in 2014 and presently works as a Restaurant Manager at the Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi. «My previous experience across Europe, Asia, and North America is accelerating my career development in the Middle East», says Apekshit. «This is combined with the right education at BHMS, self-motivation, passion and hard work.»


Luca Paradisi completed BHMS/Culinary Arts

"My experience in BHMS was great: the structure of the study plan fits perfectly with my way of studying. The theoretical lessons, having four weeks of lessons and one of exams, in my opinion, helped the studying process because it didn’t let cumulate all the theory helping to focalize on any point of the program. The practical lessons were structured very well, the students weren’t to many so it was easy to follow the lesson and the teacher was always available to answer at the questions. My internship experience was amazing because I was in a 5 star hotel with two young but very well prepared chefs, both with a long experience in Michelin star restaurants, I learned a lot because even if I was a student at the first experience they let me work, after a couple of months, during the service at the garde manger and than at the pasta section. During the last six months I learned a lot: about how to live in the kitchen and how to cook."
