Internships are a vital supplement to teaching and are an integral part of the study programmes. They are compulsory and are mainly carried out in major international hotel chains and tourism bodies, depending on national and international availability.
The internship also serves as a valuable international experience for a student seeking global hospitality career. Over 80% of BBI students carry out their internships abroad. Each year, they take this opportunity to enrich their professional and personal experience.
The length of the internships is as follow:
For the 3 years of the Bachelor programme : 9 months - worldwide
For the 2 years of the Master programme: 6 months - worldwide
For the 1 year of the online Master programme: 3 months - worldwide
The internships are structured around a progress and supervision plan established by the institute, the details of which are to be found in the student’s internship notebook entitled “TRAINEE MANUAL”. This contains a programme and progress-guide, allowing an objective evaluation of the work carried out by the student during his/her internship.
In this way, students remain in constant contact with BBI and inform it throughout their “Trainee Manual”, on the results of their work plan and progression. At the end of the training period the students establish also a report to show how they have developed.
BBI helps each student to select the most appropriate internship by organizing several hotel company visits as well as “Career Days”. The internship agreement, signed by the student, the company and BBI is established in accordance with the European Training Student Charter as drawn up by HOTREC; this body represents professionals from the different national federations.
