Internships in Hospitality

Internships are a key part of the Swiss educational model of hands-on training. Through real-life experience in a fast-paced business environment, you will gain cultural perspective, self-awareness and a professional attitude to prepare you for your future career in hospitality.

  • Discover your Potential – During the preparatory year of your program, you will complete a first internship to discover the hospitality industry and learn more about your own strengths and professional interests.
  • Exercise your Skills – The second internship in the second year of the BSc programme will allow you to exercise your supervisory techniques and project management skills in a department or location that will further develop your competencies.
  • Build your CV – The standard internship is 5-6 months in length (4 month minimum for ski resorts). These internship opportunities will allow you to gain experience and fill your CV before completing your degree.

As an LRG-UAS student, you will benefit from the professional internship and career development departments located on your campus in Bulle or Bluche.
