What the students say

Beidi Zhou

China, master's student, S2

Les Roches allows me to work with different people, cultures and values. I realize that an effective leader should understand the difference between people, and how to inspire and influence them so that they follow you voluntarily.

Soline Le

Master’s student, 2013

I have discovered a hidden side to myself since I started at Les Roches. I found myself more confident, creative, mature, humble, attentive, and better able to communicate with the people around me, especially in this international environment.

Pimpatchara Sumawong

Thailand, master's student, S2

I used to think that leadership would come as I took on managerial positions. But with such a diverse mix of class mates - different backgrounds and cultures – I have realized that leadership can be developed by simply observing, practicing, and implementing it in daily life.
