Earn up to 2300 USD per month during studying in Switzerland


Swiss Hotel Schools are pleased to announce that the Supervisory Commission of the Swiss Association of Swiss Hospitality Industry has allowed BHMS to offer its students paid supervised Swiss Industry Training in the Swiss Hospitality industry for six months in each school year.

Swiss Industry Training is mainly about the development of students and it will be instrumental for their success in their early careers. Students do well not to solely look at the salary offer, but should concentrate equally on other benefits the internship offers.

How International students in Switzerland profit

1. Hands-on working experience

Allows a student to learn how to interact and to communicate effectively with customers and fellow employees in a live working environment.

2. Learn to execute orders

By learning to understand and execute orders(and being corrected if they are not done as expected) students learn how to interact with their supervisors and learn how to effectively give orders to their staff when they have advanced to their first supervisory job.

3. Find out their limits

Working intensive, having to concentrate on the job at hand and still being able to smile has to be learnt. After some initial struggles to do this, students are surprised on how resilient they are and how to smile under adverse conditions becomes second nature.

4. Build their CV

Over the typical tree years up to graduation with a bachelor degree in Hotel & Hospitality Management, students will have accumulated three internships, hopefully in different departments and in three different hospitality businesses in Switzerland.  This will have given them an insight on how businesses or departments are run, they will have experienced diverse management styles and will have gained substantial product knowledge and business ideas, an aspect employers’ value greatly.

5. Earn an income

Last but not least, students earn each month a gross salary of CHF 2,168. From this salary they will have to pay for accommodation (normally provided by the employer) board, taxes and other deductions. The average net income each month is from CHF 1,200 to CHF 1,400. In some positions students also have the opportunity to earn tips.
