Founded in 1893, Lausanne Hotel School (EHL) is the first and oldest hotel management establishment in the world. It is the most widely recognised school of its kind at international level.
Situated high above the outskirts of the city, the school has trained over 25'000 senior managers in the hospitality industry since its inception. Over 2'200 students representing nearly 90 nationalities currently attend courses there.
Courses are taught in English and in French at the EHL, which works in partnership with the hospitality industry both in Switzerland and abroad. This model allows employers to become involved in the processes of recruiting students for work placements and future employment, and to quickly identify those who meet their requirements, mentor them and supervise their training. Long-term links are thus forged between the profession and the EHL, as are privileged relationships between employers and students who are then able to chart their own careers.
