Les Roches Global Hospitality Education, among the top institutions in hotel management education worldwide, will be launching a new Master program as of September 2019.
The Master in International Hotel Management, offered on the Les Roches Marbella campus, is intended mainly for university degree holders in any field of study, who wish to become immersed in operational management and strategic options that hotel directors and managers face on a daily basis, providing them with the necessary skills to carry out executive decision-making.
The Master, the first of its kind to be offered at Les Roches, is of a duration of 9 months, including a trip to Dubai to learn about the most emblematic luxury hotels first hand. Upon completion of the academic period, students will embark on a 6-month internship at a top company in the industry, either in Spain or abroad, where they will be given a chance to put into practice the knowledge acquired during the previous 9 months.
According to Carlos Díez de la Lastra, General Director of Les Roches Marbella, “it is a gateway to management positions at the best international organisations.”
Its objective is to immerse students fully in the hospitality industry, from basic concepts to the latest trends in management and administration, providing its students with the skills required to opt for the increasingly demanding roles in the global tourism market. It is a fast track to a career in hotel management positions.
“Tourism is one of the most important driving forces for economic growth and currently constitutes one out of every 11 job positions. Over the coming decade 65 million new jobs will be created, including the opening of more than 3,600 luxury hotels. This opens up a world of opportunities for our students, whom receive an average of 5 job offers to work at the best hotel chains upon completion of their studies,” Díez de la Lastra said.
Students of the Master in International Hotel Management will also be able to leverage the Les Roches’ extensive contact list to expand their own professional network and enter an exclusive and privileged community boasting over 12,000 alumni across 130 countries.
