A globally recognized leader in hospitality education

Les Roches enjoys worldwide recognition.


New England Commission of Higher Education

Les Roches Global Hospitality Education is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.).

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Commission indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied though a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.

Accreditation by the Commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.

Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the Commission should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:

Public statement about program of special monitoring:

On 14th June 2016, the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) approved the sale of Les Roches Global Hospitality Education to Eurazeo. In approving the change of ownership, the Commission applied its Program of Special Monitoring to the College. The Program of Special Monitoring is routinely implemented by the Commission in cases of change of ownership and enables the Commission to monitor the institution’s ongoing compliance with the Standards for Accreditation. Further information about the Program of Special Monitoring is available on the Commission’s website: www.neche.org


In 2002, the Education Department of the Canton of Valais recognized Les Roches as having degree-awarding status. This was a major step in the school’s position within the Swiss education system.
