Les Roches Jin Jiang International Hotel Management College (LRJJ) is a private college located in Shanghai, China. The College was founded as a branch campus of the flagship Les Roches International School of Hotel Management in Switzerland. LRJJ is a joint venture between Les Roches in Switzerland, ranked among the top hospitality management schools worldwide, and Jin Jiang International Hotels, the largest Asian-owned hotel group and domestic hotel chain in China.
LRJJ offers undergraduate and postgraduate diploma programs in international hotel management to a multicultural community of more than 400 students, representing over 24 countries. The curriculum, taught in English, provides students with a strong academic and theoretical basis in hospitality business management combined with a hands-on learning experience, both on campus and through an internship program. Internship opportunities are available internationally and within China, one of the most dynamic and fast-growing markets in the industry and a world tourist destination.
“The Travel & Tourism Economy is forecast to support over 300 million jobs by 2020 – i.e. 9.2% of all jobs and 9.6% of global GDP. This confirms that Travel & Tourism will continue to grow in importance as one of the world's highest-priority sectors and employers.” (WTTC 2010)
“Emerging economies, in particular, are expected to be engines of growth, boosting international travel - with China alone set to provide almost 95 million visitors for other destinations by 2020 - and also generating an increasingly vibrant domestic travel sector.” (WTTC 2010)
LRJJ addresses the growing demand for skilled hotel and hospitality executives both in China and internationally. Upon graduation, students can join the industry directly or apply to transfer for degree completion at an affiliate campus in Switzerland, Spain, Australia or the USA.
