Hospitality is a business where book learning only gets you so far. In order to succeed at the highest level, you must learn on the job. Les Roches students develop deep understanding of the hospitality business from the inside out. Our hotel management degree programs combine rigorous academics with immersion in challenging kitchens, dining rooms, cocktail bars, luxury suites, front offices and sales floors – both on campus and through exclusive international internships.
Les Roches is one of only three Swiss universities to hold accreditation from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). NEASC is an independent, voluntary, nonprofit membership organization which holds its members accountable to a globally recognized standard of excellence. Accreditation is synonymous with membership and Les Roches has been an NEASC member since 2005.
When you choose Les Roches, you join an extraordinary international club consisting of more than 12,000 engaged members in over 130 countries. Enhancing the value of our active calendar of networking and exchange events all over the world is the fact that more than 65% of our alumni are in management and executive level roles at international hospitality brands.
And, knowing the quality and commitment it takes to get a degree from Les Roches, alumni tend to seek out fellow graduates for exclusive job opportunities in the industry. “In my experience, Les Roches graduates are creative thinkers with can-do, hard work attitudes,” says Jan Willem Verweij, Director of Front Office at the Peninsula Chicago. “And that’s the reason I like to hire Les Roches graduates myself.”
