The Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) is well known in the hospitality industry being both the first and best ranking hospitality management school in the world.1 To maintain this reputation, EHL constantly strives to meet student needs and industry demands with premium hospitality education, plus recruitment, research and advisory services for industry partners.

Now, EHL is innovating again by offering new programme options and founding a new campus in southeast Asia to give students even better opportunities in the global hospitality industry.

Best place to study hospitality business – EHL Campus (Singapore)

To prepare EHL students for today’s globalised hospitality and service industries, EHL is opening a new campus in Singapore, one of the Asia’s top destinations for business and tourism. This campus will allow students to experience a melting pot culture while also discovering other countries and attractions in Southeast Asia. It will also give students career inspiration from some of the world’s most amazing five-star hotels, Michelin-starred restaurants and multinational companies based in Singapore.

One bachelor’s degree in hospitality management – two pathways, three locations

To better serve students of all backgrounds and learning styles, EHL now offers two pathways for the Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management, and the degree is offered on all three EHL campuses (Lausanne, Passugg, and soon Singapore). The new Professional Pathway, offered primarily on the Chur-Passugg campus, allows students to gain extensive professional experience through internships and a detailed focus on F&B concepts. It’s a must-see programme for students who want a hands-on approach to hospitality management and plenty of work experience at graduation.
