Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) has been ranked at the top position in the 2019 QS World University ranking for Hospitality & Leisure Management Universities, after celebrating its 125th anniversary and earning the extremely sought-after Michelin star.

Once more, QS rankings confirm Switzerland's central role in shaping the hospitality industry, and EHL's position as the world's leading institution, EHL said in a statement.

EHL Group CEO Michel Rochat reacted to the news by saying that "this is absolutely fantastic news, because the continuous recognition as the top hospitality university, is an important indicator that we are doing things the right way".

"As we celebrate our 125th anniversary, we celebrate a unique heritage that enriches all our programmes, from our professional training in our Graubünden school SSTH, to our university programmes here in Lausanne. The title of world Number 1 is an honour and a responsibility that helps us uphold our promise to open the doors to the best career opportunities for our students," he added.

"Switzerland remains an example in terms of academic excellence, competitiveness and innovation. We are delighted by this news which reinforces the relevance of our education, but also that of our certification programs which allow schools around the world to contribute to the evolution of our industry," said Olivier Roux, senior managing director of EHL Advisory Services, the group's consulting company dedicated to executive training and certification.
