What would the first hotel management school look like?
It would look like EHL?
Yes, today the article I’m writing concerns the school, which is the first hotel school to be founded in the world. The school was established in 1893. And, it is located in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Boasting a remarkable heritage of top-notch hospitality management education, the school draws in students from around the world. Every year the schools enrolls more than 2,600 students, arriving in Switzerland from 107 different countries.
Top-quality hospitality management education all around, combined with skilled staff; EHL is widely acclaimed as the best hotel management school in the world.
The school prepares students for international careers through five university-level academic programs. And, they are:
- Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management
- Master of Science in Global Hospitality Business
- MBA in Hospitality
- Executive MBA in Hospitality Administration
- Master Class in Culinary Arts
Bachelor’s Program Admission
Students seeking admission for the Bachelor’s Program are required to go through three steps of Selection Process: Initial Evaluation, Online Assessment and Final Selection. The Selection Committee of EHL will review your application and determine your eligibility for analytical and quantitative tests. Moreover, you need to demonstrate a strong command of the English or French Language. Since the International Hospitality Management degree is delivered in either of those languages.
The Bachelor’s Program introduces students to the hospitality industry, business management topics, internships and consulting mandate. A preparatory course on the hospitality industry lasts a year. Business management coursework lasts three years. After completing four years of the degree successfully, you’ll have to take two six-month internships and a 10-week consulting mandate.
