Set to launch in September 2020, with campuses in Bangkok and Chonburi in Thailand, the institute is poised to become the leading hospitality education facility in Southeast Asia and will offer certificates, diplomas and bachelor degrees in hospitality management in academic association with Les Roches.
Les Roches follows the exceptional Swiss model of education and operates under the umbrella of Sommet Education, a hospitality education leader committed to delivering exceptional student experiences and developing the leaders of tomorrow.
The Asian Institute of Hospitality Bachelor degree will be modelled after the Swiss education system and can be completed in seven semesters, or 3,5 years, combining classroom studies and practical training. Students who qualify will be offered opportunities to transfer to Les Roches campuses in Bluche, Switzerland and Marbella, Spain.
The strategic decision to open campuses in both Bangkok and Chonburi, a coastal area lined with popular beaches, means the institute is well placed to support the needs of Thailand’s fast-growing tourism industry, particularly that of the Eastern Economic Corridor.
