“Anyone standing at the crossroads, waiting to make the decision about where to study hospitality, should choose Les Roches.  I’d recommend it for its multiculturalism and for the practical side of the education, as well as the job opportunities you get. You really get to know people when you see all sides of them.  I learnt a lot about myself.  To be more relaxed, to have a better understanding.  To step back if it’s a group presentation or something and you are working with people from 5 different cultures and you’re used to doing in one way, and rather create space to let others breathe and do things another way.”

After graduating from les Roches, Elie travelled the world and opened three hotels in Dubai: Raffles, The Radisson , The Armani Hotel.  Through organizing his sister’s wedding, he set up his own wedding planning company that works all over the world and is about to set up a second office in Dubai.

“I was so enthusiastic about this degree because, in my mind, it was the ideal way to combine my studies, my passion for sports and my interest for event management. And as a professional skier, I have to say that Glion’s superb location was just perfect. I was looking for a study program that could give me the opportunity to associate theory with practice. I wanted to learn a lot from an experienced faculty and be at the heart of the event organization.”

“Putting it all into simple words, it started with my education at the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts. Being Taught by master Swiss instructors, has given me the chance to understand the Swiss work ethos of diligence, attention to details, punctuality, respect, passion and motivation to excel. This is what helped me to get to where I am now. I am truly grateful. The nice thing about the Academy is the balance between theory and practical work because working in the hospitality industry, you have to know what you are doing. The diversity at the Academy helps you. You can learn different languages and you can see different values, yet everyone comes for one thing. The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts offers a distinguished foundation of knowledge about the culinary and Hospitality industry, presenting it in a lively interesting manner with an extensive array of features to facilitate the learning process.  It is fantastic. “

“During my last semester in the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, the Director asked me if I would like to compete in the Laureate Culinary Cup of 2012, which was held in Mexico. Of course, I said yes. I started training two months before the competition. Being trained by chefs that have so much knowledge and experience in culinary arts paid off because not only did I win, I got gold with distinction. A year later, the Royal Academy decided to open a restaurant and thought I would be the perfect fit for the role of Manager. The Director and I started planning in March 2014 and opened Top Restaurant’s doors in June 2014.”    
“The reason I chose Glion was because of its exceptional reputation, the quality of the teaching and because the skills I knew I was going to learn would support me to become a successful hotelier. Having the opportunity from Glion to work anywhere in the world is absolutely exceptional. You don’t get that very often.”
Sophie Navarro
“Glion is the only school to provide you with a real and true multicultural environment. The Glion education made me flexible, able to deal with different cultures, as well as provided me with the right knowledge I needed for my current position.”
