The undergraduate programs at Les Roches Marbella balance experiential learning with the transmission of values. We encourage ‘learning by doing’ in the first semesters, with hands-on courses and mentored internship experiences. As students progress in their studies, they build upon their knowledge by developing skills that are crucial for the global manager of tomorrow, such as critical thinking, entrepreneurship, and innovation.

I am proud to say that we do not just focus on imparting knowledge; we engender an environment of loyalty, ethics, and humility, in which students perfect their soft skills and professionalism. Our graduates leave here not only highly qualified for hospitality leadership, but with values which are common and essential to the whole world of hospitality. Each of our programs is a life-changing experience.

Our experienced faculty is here to ensure that your education with us will be both enriching and enjoyable. We look forward to welcoming you on campus.”
