Across two dedicated academic semesters, you will learn how the hospitality industry works and how you can drive business and operational performance.

Curriculum includes marketing, accounting, operational management and leadership techniques. 

As this Diploma shares its academic DNA with our industry-leading BBA in Global Hospitality Management, it can also provide a stepping-stone to transfer (from semester 4 onwards) to our campuses in Switzerland or Spain to pursue the full BBA degree. 

At Les Roches we teach the practice as well as the theory of hospitality.

Your first Diploma semester takes you behind the scenes of a successful hospitality operation, giving you hands-on experience in all the key hospitality departments and roles.

From restaurant to hotel room, you’ll discover the secrets of true 5* service. 

Internships are a core component of your Les Roches education, with two professional postings integrated within this program. 

You’ll develop your resourcefulness and discover the secrets of the best, and most innovative, hospitality companies.

Wwill help you secure internships that match your ambitions and personality, and you’ll be fully supported through every step of your internship experience.
