Housekeeping Team Leader of Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa, Australia Alumnus, Bachelor of Business (International Hotel Management)
"Initially I was in doubt as I’m not sure what qualifications and skills I should attain to achieve my career path and to remain employable in the competitive environment, I’m aware that I need to find an opportunity to develop my professional skills and to expand my prosperities. So, I decided to apply for the Bachelor of Business (International Hotel Management) at Le Cordon Bleu (LCB). The course at LCB provided the opportunity to upgrade my academic and knowledge, as well as accumulated valuable work experience for me in Australia.
During the year of industry placement, I had made significant achievements not just in work but also in my life. Although, the course was full of challenge, I had learnt how to see every challenge as an opportunity for my personal growth and development. My role at work has also changed as my responsibilities and duties have enhanced. My graduation at LCB make my dream came true and this graduation means a lot to me as I studied and worked really hard with much support from my family.
I would recommend Le Cordon Bleu to everyone because they help student to becom a star with their internationally recognised and accepted qualification and placement program."

Carly Tippler , New Zealand
Owner of Claire Street Cookies Graduated with DUX Award Alumna, Bachelor of Business (International Restaurant and Catering Management)
"My time at Le Cordon Bleu has been a very rewarding and defining three years of my life. When I came to Australia to undertake my degree with LCB, I had no idea of the challenges and experiences to be had and the friendships and business contacts to be made. I learnt so many things in so many fields I had never even known existed within the umbrella of the hospitality industry. Every new semester opened up a whole new potential career path for when I finished. It was with great pride that I accepted the Dux award at graduation. This made all of the hard work worthwhile and further cemented my aim to pursue all of these new found careers until I find the perfect one! Now that I have graduated, I look forward to putting my knowledge into practice. I still dream of one day owning my own boutique catering company but will not stop exploring all aspects of the industry until I am sure that this is still my favourite!""
Justina S Harjono, Jakarta
Owner of Poste Alumna, Bachelor of Business (International Hotel Management)
"I wanted to study art at the beginning but then later found out that my passion is in the Hospitality industry where I can specialised to study food and beverage. I completed my study in Cuisine and Hotel Management at Le Cordon Bleu London and Australia. I am now running my own restaurant, Poste. I created the menu, trained the chef and designed the interior of the restaurant so to create a cozy ambience where people can relax and enjoy great dishes. Studying at Le Cordon Bleu was a great choice as it provided me with the knowledge needed to work in the industry and the internship opportunity given during studying was one of the best aspect of the curriculum."

"The two and half year management course I did at Le Cordon Bleu was lots of hard work with an intensive study schedule, but it was the greatest study experience I have ever had. From the basic, practical studies in Year 1, then stepping up to management studies in Year 2 and 3, all studies were related and useful to my current job."

"Studying at Le Cordon Bleu Australia has opened many doors for me within the Industry. Having the opportunity to do two industry placements while I was studying has helped me to reach the goals I set myself far quicker than I ever imagined. I got the chance to work in Port Douglas and also in the UK, without Le Cordon Bleu’s help I doubt I would have had these opportunities with other Colleges. After finishing my degree I was offered positions at my current company due to my experience within the Industry and my knowledge. This is an example of how well studying at Le Cordon Bleu prepares you for Industry."
