Our industry-focused programs are designed to lead students through the numerous facets of hospitality by developing their operational, administrative and managerial expertise, with a particular focus on business leadership skills. Jeremy Hutchinson At the same time, we provide an American-style university-level general director of academic affairs education that develops the full academic potential of our students.

In addition, students gain true cultural understanding and awareness due to our international student body. All our programs are delivered entirely in English.

These seasoned experts regularly review our programs to enable us to meet the changing needs of the industry. ouR paNel of iNdustRY advisoRs Our panel includes leading decision-makers from the following top international hotel chains: Accor // Four Seasons // Hilton // Hyatt International // InterContinental // Kempinski // Le Méridien // Ritz Carlton // Radisson8

Here at Les Roches, we ensure that our students are well-versed in Kitchen // Service // Rooms Division These three areas are taught outside a traditional classroom environment as students learn by doing. This learning style is called hands-on or craft-based learning. Hands-on learning is critical to gain the knowledge and skills needed to lead hospitality organizations in the future. This is the part of the program that many students enjoy most, where they learn leadership skills and build confidence. The kitchens, dining rooms and rooms division areas are equipped exactly as they would be in a top hotel or restaurant. This is the perfect opportunity to learn how to work effectively in a team and learn to communicate between your fellow students and faculty before going on your first internship.10

Switzerland also has one of the most modern railway systems in the world, which puts you virtually anywhere in Europe in a matter of hours. So whatever your preferred mode of transportation is, Switzerland has you covered. But it is not just because of its beautiful landscapes, wonderful chocolate and cheeses, world renown banking, luxury watch making or central location that Switzerland is visited by so many tourists and business people. It is also because it has such a long tradition of political stability, low crime rates, clean air and a reputation for reliability. These are just some of the reasons why parents have been sending their sons and daughters to Swiss schools for generations. doN’t imagiNe it...

  26. 26. studeNt life Student life at Les Roches mirrors the life of the future manager in the hospitality industry; fulfilling demanding work schedules, yet sill enjoying an active social life. Indeed, two major components of the Les Roches way of life are the regimented work disciplines associated with the academic and practical demands of the curriculum, and the cross-cultural social activities of the student body. You will feel as if you are living in a village rather than a traditional campus setting. Students are accommodated in a number of residential buildings in Bluche and the surrounding area. All rooms have ample hanging and storage space, comfortable beds and a place to study. Internet and network connections are available on the main campus as well as in all of the residencies. Laundry facilities and areas where students gather to work on projects, or just to relax, are also available in most residences. The student social committee organizes many social and cultural activities on and off campus such as the Cultural Night, theme dinner parties, quiz nights, disco evenings and more. The Café du Village (also called CDV) is a focal point for running these events and also boasts a selection of recreational activities such as electronic games, a pool table and a Fussball table. One of the highlights each year is “Cultural Night”, consisting of an evening of entertainment and culinary specialties. Students from all countries are invited to participate in the entertainment show whereby they depict aspects of their own culture. Following the show, there is a chance to taste a variety of exotic foods prepared by the students representing their country.26
