Graduate Privileged Partners

BMIHMS Graduate Privileged Partners Logo

The Graduate Privileged Partners program (GPP) is a competitive recruitment program connecting our highest achieving second year students with a select group of industry partners.

BMIHMS used this demand for students as an opportunity to not only enhance our teaching and strengthen our curriculum, but also develop student confidence in the workplace.

How the GPP works

The GPP provides a unique opportunity for the hospitality industry to recruit our top graduates. With strict criteria for academic performance, practical skills training and industry experience successful candidates are selected and recommended to industry partners based on their suitability for graduate roles.

This process ensures a strong relationship between students and potential employers, far beyond the normal interview process, and results in greater certainty for both parties about commitment and quality.

The GPP is conducted over several months, starting in a student’s second academic year. The student will undergo personal interviews, Gallup Strenght’s and coaching sessions. Our industry partners make the final selection to fill positions in their graduate and corporate management programs or for other roles with their companies that provide secure career growth prospects.


Whether undergraduate or postgraduate, BMIHMS students always have regular access to hospitality industry professionals. Students also have the opportunity to network with our Industry Partners at annual expo events held at both the Leura and Sydney Campuses.
