Industry internships

The close collaboration AIM has with international hotel chains and the world’s leading establishments effectively prepares students for the labor market thanks to operational or management internships.

Visiting hotels and palaces, hosting their representatives on campus with presentations and interviews with students also contribute to the realization of their future professional projects.

Stages dans tous les palaces et grands hôtels de Paris et du monde

We regularly receive representatives of the palaces: Dorchester Group (Plaza Athénée, Meurice), Four Seasons (Georges V, Grand Hotel Cap-Ferrat), Peninsula, Royal-Monceau, Bristol... and major hotel chains: Intercontinental, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, Accorhotels... with days dedicated to the presentation and thereafter, interviews with students, whether for their management training or internships for their future jobs.

Students and Ms. Bergund Salen, the director of internships, choose the country and the hotel with the approval of the Studies direction.

They each receive on average 3 to 5 firm placements.

During periods of internship, they are found in all the palaces and great hotels of the world, starting with those of Paris.

Carte des stages AIM

Each of our students, thanks to their knowledge, expertise, and excellent command of English (and probably also “some” French?!), receives numerous offers, the majority from palaces and major international hotels all over the world.

Within the framework defined by the internship department, they are free to choose the country, the hospitality company, and the department in which they wish to carry out their mission.


Bachelor of Science 1

During the summer period from May to September, students who have completed their 1st year of studies embark on a four to five-month summer internship in France or abroad.
Modeled on the internships undertaken by students enrolled at France’s most prestigious «Grandes écoles» , these industry work placements – as they are known – usually involve working in the Front Office or in the Housekeeping and Food & Beverage (restaurant/ bar) departments where customer service is a top priority.
