Seven Reasons to Hire Our Students

Our students represent over 120 different nationalities. Most of them grew up in international environments.
They are more adaptable and better able to deal with a large variety of viewpoints. 84% of EHL students speak 3 or more languages.
Most of our students have traveled extensively and attended international schools. Even before EHL, they have built a wide and diverse personal network.
Thanks to their hospitality education and experience they are able to understand their clients’ needs and build trust.
EHL students are educated to be strict about their physical appearance and style. They are often "on-stage", delivering presentations to large audiences or handling VIP clients.
As a result, they impress with their strong personal presence, well-spoken and confident.
Students must juggle group work and personal projects during their studies, which prepares them to be organized and good multitaskers.
They understand that business and personal success is built on serving others and are therefore generous with their time, knowledge, and resources.
Even the majority of first-year students have work experience in the hospitality industry. They know that going home only happens when everybody is done.
They are not afraid of pitching in a bit extra to make the project perfect because they know how important teamwork is to the success of the group.
At EHL, courses range from digital marketing to finance to real estate management, with many case studies and real life applications, which give students strong analytical skills, without getting bogged down in too much theory.
If being eager to learn is a requirement to join EHL, students' passion for hospitality goes beyond the classroom. Most invest some of their free time in charity activities, in organizing events or in planning their future hospitality start-up.
