EHL Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne becomes EHL Hospitality Business School

On the occasion of its 128th anniversary, the EHL Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne is getting a makeover and becomes EHL Hospitality Business School. This new name aims to highlight the managerial character of the various hospitality professions in which EHL trains its students, and confirms the academic advances and the international influence of the Institution.

A new name reflecting the career prospects offered by EHL

Throughout our history, our positioning has always been unique. Today, the name of EHL Hospitality Business School fully illustrates our identity, which has evolved over time while remaining faithful to its DNA. Indeed, our anchoring in know-how and hotel management continues to offer a differentiated context for our teaching and our research. This approach enriches our management, finance and even marketing courses. Thus, well beyond the hotel industry, a multitude of leaders from various industries such as banking, real estate, consulting, or even luxury manufacturing recruit our graduates. explains Dr. Inès Blal, Executive Dean of EHL.

A new name which confirms EHL’s place among the best Business Schools

EHL Hospitality Business School also reflects the academic advances of EHL in the field of managerial studies, attested in particular by the latest QS university ranking, which places EHL in the top 5 of business management institutions in Switzerland. The quality of the academic model and the attractiveness it arouses are also demonstrated by the record number of students registered for 2 years at EHL, despite the health context. The new name also accompanies the development of the EHL Graduate School, which includes full-time and part-time master’s programs, coursework programs and executive training focused on key hospitality skills for the entire service sector. With over 125 nationalities among its students, EHL today embodies a unique multicultural microcosm. EHL Hospitality Business School will thus allow EHL’s international audience to identify more with the Institution while providing more clarity on its positioning in global academic spheres.

A new name reflecting human hospitality and focused on customer service

It is with great emotion and humility that we begin this new chapter in the history of EHL, which today becomes EHL Hospitality Business School. While many things have changed over the 128 years of our Institution, we have always known how to keep people at the heart of everything we do and we fully intend to continue on this path. The hospitality management that we teach our students is resolutely focused on customer service, and rich in social and environmental values. add Pr. Michel Rochat, CEO of the EHL Group.
