Thai media professionals visit Les Roches International School of Hotel Management

Specialists from high end media in Thailand, such as the Bangkok Post, the Daily News Newspaper, the Post Today and other culinary or hotel magazines, visited Les Roches in Bluche, Switzerland, one of the leading hospitality schools in the world for an international career.

The group of  journalists had a busy program in Les Roches. They visited the campus facilities and interviewed Thai students from different programs. They also had the opportunity to meet the representatives of the academics, the management and the vice president of Laureate Hospitality Education Worldwide, Mr. Arie van der Spek. Les Roches is one of the eight institutions that are part of Laureate Hospitality Education (LHE), a leading hospitality group in the world. Present in five countries and four continents, LHE provides different transfer options as well as opportunities to study abroad.

“This visit is very important for us as we understand now that hospitality is much more than service and kitchen but that you can study to have high level jobs such as becoming general manager of a five star hotel. We have now to educate people in Thailand to change their  vision of hospitality” said Mrs. Balankura, Social Director at Hello magazine.

After many interviews, meetings and visits, the group was able to play the tourists in Crans Montana, the famous ski resort near Bluche where Les Roches campus is situated. It was also important for them to have a feeling of the campus surroundings as Thai students experience it when they study at Les Roches.

Many media experts from around the world come each year to visit Les Roches and meet with the faculty and some of its students coming from almost 100 different nationalities.
