Our program gives you practical and professional experience along with the cultural fluency and business management skills to start a great career.
Our curriculum reinforces academic study of hospitality fundamentals with practical lessons and real-life professional experience.
When you do kitchen duty, for example, your learning goes beyond culinary art. You learn team management, logistics and financial planning. You develop industry-demand soft skills, such as flexibility, problem solving, communication, timekeeping and precision. You get a chance to put these management and leadership skills into action during your two international internships — in any sector or industry, in almost any country around the world.
You learn about innovative business practices through personal interaction with disruptive companies and leaders. Invited guest speakers and visiting companies bring their industry expertise to you on campus. Meanwhile, Les Roches provides opportunities for you to visit leading businesses in hospitality and beyond. For example, faculty at Les Roches Chicago organize a trip to Silicon Valley, where students can experience innovation and startup culture in action.
In your final year, you can take a specialization or pick and choose from different course electives to customize your degree to your unique career pathway.
