Les Roches International School of Hotel Management has introduced a two-degree hospitality program with Kendall College. The two-degree program seeks to fulfill the hospitality industry’s need for graduates who have both international experience and are multicultural-savvy.
The two-degree program allows students to combine a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management at the Les Roches campuses in Switzerland or Spain with an extra nine months of study at Kendall College in Chicago. Students will have the opportunity to complete their second Les Roches six-month internship in the US on successful completion, they will receive two bachelor-level degrees from Les Roches and Kendall.
Students may also apply for a 12-month permit to work in the US and gain practical training.
The program will focus on hospitality management, relevant language skills, as well as the economic and socio-political dynamics of the country’s hospitality and tourism industry. The curriculum and live-in experience will provide students with a global understanding of what it means to be international in the hospitality industry. Classes start in July 2014.
