Luzern is situated on the most important route between north and south, and connected with the Swiss train network in 6 directions.

Student Testimonials:

Photos of Business & Hotel Management School (BHMS), Luzern"My experience at BHMS was 'valuable'. I learned what 'professionalism' is and that helped me down the path to a successful career in Culinary Management. Classes are short and to the point with a very professional faculty, getting everyone to attend and involved. Highly disciplined Swiss industry training also helped me prepare for my current position in the United States. I would also like to mention the Dean, Mr. Philipp Terry, who helped us for with everything and had solution for every problem. He was especially helpful in securing international, post-graduate placement."

"I spent two splendid years at BHMS. Having successfully studied hospitality subjects I also managed to excel, among other things, in self-motivation, order and self-determination. I learned the value and significance of helping others and contributing to the surrounding community. I am now an undergraduate student at one of the finest universities in England. I would very much like to thank BHMS and Mr. Phillipp Terry for an offering of such a benevolent acceleration to the world of unlimited opportunities and career chances."
