Les Roches

Les Roches (Marbella, Spain & Crans-Montana, Switzerland)


A bespoke experience to educate tomorrow’s leaders in hospitality management

The essence of Les Roches – as it has been for almost 70 years – is to deliver a world-class education in hospitality management. With a firm emphasis on providing international opportunities for our students we are perfectly in tune with the truly global business of hospitality. On and off campus, we open their hearts to new cultures; and their minds to new ideas. Our students learn to lead in their own individual styles and with bespoke support that continues into their careers.

We demonstrate this by:

★ Achieving 5 Stars (Excellent) overall in the QS Stars higher education rating system, having been assessed across at least seven categories including teaching, facilities and employability.

★ Providing international study pathways between our Swiss and Spanish campuses, as well as with other schools within our group

★ Offering students an opportunity to study in two of Europe’s most attractive luxury resort destinations – Crans-Montana, Switzerland, and Marbella, Spain.

★ Off-campus activities including city visits, sports club memberships, plus resort-specific pursuits (skiing, sailing, golf, hiking, etc)

★ Offering a truly exceptional student life, with every student belonging to a ‘house’ while enjoying access to 44 student-led clubs and societies and more than 80 sports and cultural activities on campus each semester

★ Creating the largest dedicated health & wellness area of any hospitality management school, to support students in mind and body

★ Providing a 5-star concierge service that covers day-to-day services (e.g., laundry, transportation) and leisure activities (e.g., sports, travel)

★ The exceptional diversity of our student community, with around 100 different nationalities on campus and a combined 85% (97% in Crans-Montana, 77% in Marbella) share of international students

★ Our capped class sizes produce an exceptionally low 16:1 staff to student ratio, which means better engagement in class and more personalized study support

★ Our ability to attract more than 200 recruiting companies to our campuses – either in person or virtually – each year

★ Our highly engaged alumni community, now numbering more than 16,000 individuals

★ Sharing our NECHE accreditation with institutions such as Yale and Harvard

★ Breaking new ground for a hospitality school by establishing Spark, our global innovation sphere, and integrating it fully within our academic portfolio
