We pushed our educational portfolio forward with the addition of two new programs; our blended MBA in Hospitality, 80% online and 20% on campus, which will be launched in September 2017 and our Master Class in Culinary Arts, a six months certificate, which will start in February 2017.
We inaugurated our second office abroad, in San Francisco.
We formalized our partnership with the Institut International Joël Robuchon, that contributes to the enrichment of training in the culinary arts and to the development of leading professionals.
We published the first Lausanne Report, a study that provides reader-friendly reflection on some of the most important forces that are shaping today’s world and their long-term impact on the hospitality industry.
On a national scale, the decision of the Swiss Government – with regards to the new immigration law – to allow foreign students to stay in Switzerland without any restrictions is, of course, extremely positive.
Countless events proposed and organised by our students contributed to the EHL entrepreneurial spirit.
EHL groups will also compete in the 2017 editions of the L’Oréal Brandstorm, KPMG International Case Competition (KICC) and AccorHotels Take Off! contests. We wish them all great success and are looking forward to many new reasons to celebrate in 2017!
