Business & Hotel Management School (BHMS)

The pathway program between THTI and BHMS Switzerland, was launched in 2019 and is the first and only existing matriculation program allowing Trinidad and Tobago students direct access to Swiss degrees. The program allows local students to complete associate degrees in Hospitality, Tourism, Food and Beverage and Culinary Arts at the THTI campus in Tobago and then progress onto BHMS where they would complete one additional year of study to attain their BHMS bachelor’s degrees and Swiss internship experience.

Students can take advantage of this pathway to earn a globally recognized, accredited degree and to benefit from valuable professional and life experience by living and working in Switzerland for a year. THTI students also benefit from an automatic scholarship towards their study at BHMS upon completion of their local associate degree Programme.
