This week EHL welcomes the first 28 students admitted to the new Master of Science HES-SO in Global Hospitality Business.
With an international, business-centered and highly demanding curriculum, the MSc in Global Hospitality Business provides an ambitious program for future hospitality managers.

The selected cohort of students will begin their curriculum in Switzerland at EHL, and move to the School of Hotel & Tourism Management at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University for their second semester. They will then spend 3 months in residence with an international hospitality company and finally complete their third semester at the Hilton College in Houston, Texas. The intense 16-month curriculum is fully endorsed by top hospitality companies and includes practical, real-life professional experience with EHL’s industry partners.
