Class of 2016 (PGM)

“Coming to Les Roches meant breaking out from my comfort zone, and facing all the fear and uncertainty that entails. Studying two postgraduate programs, one in International Hospitality Management and another in Marketing Management for Luxury Tourism, required full-time commitment and dedication. It has been a very demanding path on which I have met wonderful people from all over the world, and I have acquired the knowledge and values that have enabled me to start a new professional life in a sector that I am passionate about.

Without a doubt, having Les Roches on my CV helps me to stand out from the crowd during the recruitment process. However, it’s the values – such as responsibility, professionalism and rigor – instilled by Les Roches which ultimately make me a successful candidate. In the world of luxury five-star establishments, those standards of excellence make all the difference.”
