Les Roches-Gruyère University of Applied Sciences is the first private University of Applied Sciences in hotel management in Switzerland. It offers a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management including a specialisation in international hospitality management or a specialisation in food, beverage and operations management that is recognised by the Swiss government and that meets the Bologna European standards. It also offers a one year Master of advanced studies. This university uses the resources and facilities of the highly-reputed Swiss institutions of Les Roches International School of Hotel Management and of Glion Institute of Higher Education*. Both of these institutions were recently ranked in a worldwide industry survey to be among the top three hospitality management schools in the world for an international career. GIHE and Les Roches, our sister schools, are accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) in the USA and are not part of the federally authorised UAS.

    Les Roches Gruyère - University of Applied Sciences Les Roches Gruyère - University of Applied Sciences Presentation Transcript

    • What is LRG  Les Roches Gruyère University of Applied Sciences is a new University that received official federal authorization on the 2nd of July 2008 from the Swiss government.  Second private UAS ever approved in Switzerland  First private UAS in the hotel management field  In January 2009, it launched a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management.
    • What is LRG http://www.bbt.admin.ch/themen/hochschulen/00215/00232/index.html?lang=fr
    • What are the criteria to be a UAS 1. To deliver a Bologna Style degree that meets Swiss entry requirements 2. To deliver post graduate degree: (Master of Advanced Studies) 3. To undertake Research 4. To undertake consultancy
    • Why the name of LRG?  One of our prime objective was to launch a new university that would receive immediate recognition throughout the world and the hospitality industry. The name of Les Roches is very well known and is among the top three hospitality schools in the world, hence taking advantage of its prime position and recognised brand name.  We were not allowed to use the name “Glion” as it is the name of a town and we do not meet the criteria necessary to use it.  NEASC and the Swiss Government did not allow us to use “Les Roches University of Applied Sciences” because too close and similar to the current Les Roches International School of Hotel Management.
    • Why the name of LRG?  To clearly differentiate this new university and as it will be registered in the Canton of Fribourg and more specifically in the Gruyère region (which is different from the cheese which is spelled with an “s” at the end of “Gruyères”), the word Gruyère was added to the name. Also, the main campus will be in Bulle which is also part of the Gruyère region.  Hence Les Roches-Gruyère University of Applied Sciences was chosen to ensure quick recognition within the industry through the name of “Les Roches”, and to differentiate it from the current Les Roches through its distinctive location in the Gruyère region.  Logo was changed recently to put more emphasis on the UAS aspect rather than LRG
