Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) has once again confirmed its position as the world’s leading institution in hospitality management education and is now among the top five business management institutions in Switzerland. These two fine recognitions are the fruit of an exceptional and caring educational environment, training the managers and enlightened citizens of tomorrow.
Leadership for a post-Covid world
To establish its international rankings, the independent organization QS World University Rankings relies primarily on the reputation of universities in the academic world and among 50,000 employers. EHL’s status as a reference has been built on its ability to offer its students an ecosystem in which it is good to study and to train graduates who are highly sought-after for their skills, knowledge and exemplary attitude.
“This recognition is especially gratifying as it rewards all the efforts that have been made during a year full of pitfalls. But beyond the rankings and distinctions, it is with humility and a great sense of responsibility that we must continue to make the educational environment evolve towards the new aspirations of students, and open the way to an innovative, collaborative and caring post-covid world”, enthused Michel Rochat, EHL Group CEO.
“The business school of hospitality”
In addition, EHL has made a breakthrough in the top 5 business management institutions in Switzerland, making it rival the best specialized universities in the country, such as the University of St. Gallen and IMD.
“Based on our history and mission, we have a unique positioning. Our core expertise of ‘savoir-faire’ and hospitality management is a key differentiator for our teaching and research. This approach enriches our management, finance and marketing courses among others. As a result, our graduates become managers perfectly groomed for customer experience. This added value within the field of management is essential. Beyond the hotel industry, many business leaders within a diverse range of industries such as banking, real estate, consulting or luxury recruit our graduates. This is because they value an approach of management based on applied learning and geared towards client needs”, adds Inès Blal, Executive Dean of EHL.
