Hospitality management in Switzerland: it’s not for everyone

Switzerland is the birthplace of hospitality management, and arguably the biggest influence on the global hospitality industry, as we know it today. Over a hundred years ago, the world’s first hospitality management school opened its doors in Switzerland. It pioneered the educational model of craft-based learning, which is the basis of all current high-level hospitality education worldwide.

The standard of excellence in hospitality programs offered by top-ranking Les Roches International School of Hotel Management, is reflected across the spectrum of goods and services for which Switzerland is famous. From fine cuisine and wine to luxury travel and shopping, Switzerland offers a certain lifestyle that is not an ‘ordinary’ student experience.

Switzerland is also one of the healthiest and safest places to live. Les Roches is located next to Crans-Montana, one of Switzerland’s most exclusive luxury alpine resorts. This means our students can pursue all mountain-related sporting activities as well as more traditional sports, such as golf, football and tennis, which are offered on or near the university campus.


Les Roches is not for every student of hospitality

Our university-accredited Bachelor of Business Administration degrees and diplomas attract those who seek to explore the world, embrace entrepreneurialism, and live and work to their full potential. Les Roches attracts the outgoing, those who will thrive in our international student body and aim to gain valuable life experience as well as an excellent education.

And it attracts those who appreciate what excellence is, both in the latest technology and learning facilities on offer, and in the faculty and the cutting-edge curricula which they develop to meet the changing demands of a dynamic industry.
