A comprehensive academic education is the bedrock of this Bachelor program.
We will teach you how a hospitality business works from the inside out.
Our curriculum covers:

Our teaching also focuses on the soft skills that distinguish the most effective managers.
You will discover the secrets of great leadership, including communication, problem-solving and talent management.
At Les Roches we teach the theory and the practice of hospitality.
In your first, Practical Arts semester you will gain hands-on experience in all the key hospitality departments and roles.
You will experience the pace of working in service, the pressure of the kitchens, and the attention to detail needed in the rooms division.
Internships are a core component of your Les Roches education, with two professional postings integrated within our Bachelor program.
You’ll develop your resourcefulness and discover the secrets of the best, and most innovative, hospitality companies.
We will help you secure internships that match your ambitions and personality, and you’ll be fully supported throughout your internship experience.
