EHL still top hospitality management school outside of US

Cape Town - Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) has been ranked second globally, and first outside of the US in the 2018 QS World University ranking for Hospitality & Leisure Management Universities.

The University of Nevada in Las Vegas took the top global spot, with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University third and the University of Surrey fourth.

EHL Group CEO Michel Rochat said “continuous recognition as the top hospitality university, outside the US, is an important indicator that we are doing things the right way”.

“As we celebrate our 125th anniversary, we celebrate a unique heritage, and have managed to stay on top by continuously renewing ourselves and embracing change. Our mission is to perpetuate this spirit in everything we do,” he added.

EHL’s focus remains on the future of hospitality and the future of education. Unique research projects are underway as well as the creation of an Innovation Hub and expansion into South-East Asia in the coming months.

A delegation of about 16 school counsellors from African schools was hosted by EHL at its campus in Switzerland last year. It followed on an earlier visit last year by representatives of EHL, to look at the potential of expanding its network to SA.
