Four Pillars of Education
There are four pillars to an EHL education, something that sets our program apart from other bachelors in hospitality management. We believe that students perform best when they understand how the industry works. Thus, all students start with a ground-up education in hospitality or culinary arts.
After learning about the industry, students then study the management component. To build soft skills that will help students find success in the field, we encourage the development of interpersonal skills. Putting it all together, we then provide students with ways to gain hands-in experience. Internships and practica that reinforce classroom knowledge and build critical skills and resume experience.

Our students may enter EHL with an idea of what they want to do, but they soon found out there's a world of opportunity, from jobs they never knew existed to consulting work that presents new challenges every day. Students are exposed to these opportunities throughout their education, as we believe the breadth of opportunities creates well-rounded graduates that are poised to find success anywhere they choose.
