Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management
Your studies at EHL will strike a unique balance between the scientific and artistic elements of management. Courses are part of an integrated whole, allowing you to see how all areas in a hospitality enterprise impact on each other. This modular approach will allow you to combine business and strategy courses with hands-on practical work, projects and special events designed to develop your artistic and people skills.
Learning is active, based on group work, case studies, investigation and experimentation. It takes place both on and off campus, at school and on the job. Since it was founded in 1893 as the world’s first school of hospitality management, Lausanne has developed an educational philosophy built on the twin pillars of art and science. The scientific aspect is focused mainly on quantitative management competencies. Increasingly today, figures drive decisions; you will therefore acquire the hard skills needed to measure the impact of a business plan. We will help you develop the knowledge to make informed decisions and the confidence to convince others that they are feasible.
The artistic and creative aspect has two different sides. First, you will develop the performance talents needed to stage a memorable hospitality experience. This involves both tangible and intangible elements: design and style, architecture, lighting, ambiance, fine dining and fine wines, as well as service that is so perfect and discreet that guests are not even aware of it! Secondly, you will focus on the business creativity skills needed for innovative management. You will learn to think in new ways, weigh risk and make decisions which are not only well-informed, but also daring.
