The Student Perspective

"I chose Les Roches because it offers a completely different way of teaching a college student. Originally, I was thinking about attending an American university, but did not find it as interesting as Les Roches.

With the education I am receiving, I aim to achieve great things within a world-class hotel brand such as the Four Seasons. I hope to become a hotel manager in the next 10 to 15 years. My goal is to improve as a person and as a leader, and to interact with my co-workers in such a way that we build a stronger connection."
