What are the benefits of a hospitality degree?

Hospitality is the happiness industry. It’s also a serious contributor to the global economy, employing more than a tenth of the world’s workforce.

And it’s still growing in fresh and exciting ways, as new generations choose memorable experiences over material possessions.

There’s never been a better time to forge a career in hospitality.

Your passport to global careers

If you think a hospitality degree means working only for hotels and restaurants, think again.

Sure, we have many graduates who’ve followed this path with great success. But studying at Les Roches opens up a world of other career opportunities, in areas like:

  • Retail & fashion
  • FMCG
  • Sports & leisure
  • Marketing & media
  • Consultancy
  • Start-ups
  • Real estate
  • Events management
  • Consulates & embassies
  • Museums & art
  • And many more

And if you dream of being your own boss, consider that around a third of our alumni go on to become entrepreneurs.
