In their own words

Aditya Sawant

BBA, 2013

I would say, I am a vital illustration of a Les Roches entrepreneur. Les Roches gives you the confidence to go out and do something on your own, and become something. Les Roches provided me everything a student demands in a multicultural environment.

Michael Wu

BBA, 2004

Three great things I learnt at Les Roches: be independent, solve your own problem and help others. The most complimentary things my managers have said about me are that I am organised, am a quick learner and well…. ‘oh you went to Les Roches.

Isaline Durant

BBA, 2014

Les Roches teaches you not to give up. The fact that yes, you have really hard days. Sometimes you do jobs you didn’t think you’d have to do. But you know that every single small task actually matters to ensure that the operations run smoothly. Les Roches taught me this, through the practical experiences as well as the internship experiences.
