Summer Program

In July 2016, Les Roches will host the summer program for anyone who is thinking about a global career in hospitality.

Every July, Les Roches attracts curious, talented, entrepreneurial young people from all corners of the globe who want to discover the world of hospitality from one of the world’s top-ranking Swiss hospitality schools.

The best way to learn about hospitality is by doing it. So our aim is to introduce you to the different areas of hospitality through both an experiential and theory-based program, to see if a career in this dynamic, opportunity-rich sector is for you.

Obviously ensuring you get some serious outdoor time in the Alps whilst you are at it.



It goes beyond hotels and restaurants to encompass many different sectors, including: travel, tourism, events, entertainment, conferences, culinary arts, beverages and luxury retail.

Our faculty are gifted communicators – industry experts and enthusiastic teachers who will make this world come alive for you.

  • Help you understand and practice the ‘soft skills’ you need for a successful career
