Les Roches International School of Hotel Management has been ranked yet again among the top three hospitality schools worldwide for preparing students for an international career in hospitality management.
The survey included a large sample of hiring managers from luxury international hospitality companies around the world and was conducted by Taylor Nelson Sofres (TNS) Travel & Tourism (U.K.), the world’s largest provider of custom research and analysis.
According to the survey, 56% of industry managers based in luxury hotels prefer graduates who have trained in more than a single country.
This is one of the unique selling points of the programs at Les Roches, which sets it apart from other Swiss hospitality schools.
For example, Les Roches’ curriculum gives students the opportunity to study at campuses in Spain, China and Jordan.
As Sonia Tatar, CEO of Les Roches, says: “Our new Les Roches Global Bachelor’s Degree and its internship component provide students with up to five destinations during their studies, which is unique for programs in hospitality management.”
The survey was conducted in spring and summer 2013, and invitations were sent to more than 50,000 hoteliers in 80 countries, including a large sample of hiring managers from luxury international hospitality companies. It was conducted by Taylor Nelson Sofres (TNS) Travel & Tourism (U.K.), the world’s largest provider of custom research and analysis. The survey results are statistically reliable at a 95% confidence level and similar results were obtained in a global industry survey conducted in 2010 by TNS.
