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:

  • critical operational functions
  • marketing and sales
  • accounting and financial management.

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.


"My internship experience taught me a lot, not just professionally but also personally. As my ex-manager said, 'Jo, you are so qualified in terms of skill-sets and technical knowledge that you can take a permanent job right away'."
Jo Desai BBA student

The final semester specialization is your opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge of the professional discipline of your choice.

It’s a level of subject-matter focus that you won’t find in other schools, and it will give you an unfair advantage in the job market.
