One thing I have learned after two years of studying hospitality management at Les Roches Marbella is that the best professional status doesn’t come from your university background alone, but from what you do with it. As students in one of the best hospitality management schools in the world, we should all feel very proud and motivated. After all, Les Roches universities have a recognized footprint all over the world due in large part to the pride and dedication of the students and faculty. During our professional experiences abroad in internships, we quickly acknowledge the importance of studying in this university and our commitment to representing the school is evidenced by our continuous application of the highest standards of hospitality.
The skills and techniques that the school provides are very important, but it is the professional values and commitment to our work that they instill in us that really makes the difference. With this in mind, our career progress should not be the only goal, but instead the result of our personal development and professional excellence.
During my internship at the Grand Hyatt Dubai, I had many opportunities to talk with my supervisors and I even had an interesting conversation with the hotel’s general manager, John Beverige. I was extremely pleased to hear when he said, “Les Roches students are very polished”. Compliments of this sort coming from a senior member of the hotel management profession directly reflect on our daily performance, behavior and positive attitudes. This kind of recognition motivates us to excel in our objectives provides us with the drive and passion that will ultimately determine our professional success.
As a student, I am growing and discovering my passion for hospitality every day. If there is one thing I can tell you to do it is to believe in yourselves and believe in what you are capable of. Always care about yourselves and about others and value what you have been learning and achieving. If you do strive for excellence, success will come.
