“I decided to study abroad because of the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, to learn about different cultures, and also to give my education an international perspective.”
Eduardo Kreimerman took a semester out from Massachusetts-based Endicott College, and now he’s feeling right at home on our Crans-Montana campus, in the beautiful Swiss Alps.
He’s just one of the academic adventurers who have taken advantage of Les Roches’ Semester Abroad program, which also includes our campuses in Spain and China.
How does Semester Abroad work?
Pretty simple. If you’re studying hospitality management or a business-related topic at your current university, you can choose from a wide variety of practical or academic study programs at Les Roches.
One example is a semester-long academic program in Crans-Montana, where you can choose up to five courses – for a total of 15 credits – from second year classes such as hospitality financial accounting, digital marketing, human resources, data analytics and many more (click here to see the full range). As a Semester Abroad student, you also have the option to experience a fully-supported professional internship.
For a more hands-on Semester Abroad, how about a 20-week practical program at Les Roches Marbella? This includes classes on service techniques, bar and beverage operations, cleaning science and stewarding, culinary arts, and more. Upon completion, you will receive a course transcript listing the corresponding passed credits.
And if you want to get up close and personal to the world’s biggest and arguably most vibrant city, how about Les Roches Jin Jiang in Shanghai? You can pick academic or practical programs, while experiencing Asia’s economic powerhouse and brushing up on your Mandarin!
