Are your students interested in a career in hospitality management? Are they the type of student who thrives in a multinational, dynamic environment? Would they benefit from a university experience that combines academic theory with an applied-learning approach, professional internships and international travel opportunities?

Hospitality offers a wide range of careers, and different institutions and universities offer courses that are suited to different character profiles and career objectives.

Students are successful at Les Roches, if they have some of the following characteristics:

 

  • Outgoing and open-minded
  • People-oriented
  • Interested in travel and foreign culture
  • Entrepreneurial, creative and adventurous
  • Socially engaged with a team-player attitude

Hospitality is much more than hotels and restaurants, though these still offer excellent international careers. Sectors include travel, tourism and retail, culinary arts, events and entertainment.

Hospitality offers every conceivable job, from revenue management, strategic leadership and public relations, to human resources, sales and marketing, and sustainable management as well as investment/private banking and luxury brand management.

There are several advantages of pursuing a career in one of these sectors within the hospitality industry:

 

  • Job security. Strong growth predicted for industry, with 1 in 10 jobs being in travel and tourism by 2023
  • Strong professional development possibilities
