A Solid Business Model

Much more than an academic accreditation, the EHL certification process addresses the institution as a whole to make the school successful and profitable. Our consultants offer guidance and support in areas such as financial planning, marketing positioning and operations efficiency.

Three-Step Process

The EHL certification process of partnership begins with a shared vision for the institution and passes by many steps of advisory presence and review, allowing the institution to pass through three levels of association and to achieve ever-higher levels of certification with EHL.

Progressive Benefits

As soon as a school enters the certification process, they begin to access a number of privileges that progress through the three stages of membership.

Once an institution has achieved the status of a "Center of Excellence" it becomes like a branch of EHL with access to exclusive resources and an annual academic and business review.

EHL Certified Schools Network

The following schools integrated the EHL network of schools by demonstrating a high level of commitment towards hospitality education and strong partnerships within their local industry. These schools enter into the certification program ensuring periodic reviews, qualitative enhancements and faculty training to maintain the certification. Faculty and management of each school undergo our Qualified Learning Facilitator’s training program, designed to transfer the art and science of effective learning.
