EHL in a nutshell

At a time when grand luxury hotels were making their mark across European cities, demands for personalized, high-quality service led to a need for competent staff and dynamic managers. Mr. Tschumi was a pioneer in recognizing and acting on the need for highly qualified and skilled employees in the hospitality industry, which led to the founding of EHL in 1893.

More About EHL's History



Our organizational status as a foundation clearly sets us apart by signifying the reinvestment of all profits to further enhance the quality of our students' education.

Our structure allows us to deploy a variety of products and offerings in both Swiss and international markets. It enables students, faculty and administrative personnel to evolve in an environment that is in line with the hospitality industry's expectations.

Most importantly, being a not-for-profit company facilitates our work in developing academic programs and resources, thereby reinforcing our status as the world's leader in higher education in Hospitality Management.
