Our bachelor's degree program is designed to prepare students to meet the needs and expectations of the hospitality sector and to deliver the academic rigor necessary for higher education qualifications.
Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges in the United States. This accreditation guarantees that our school meets the most stringent international higher education standards. It allows you to transfer course credits and ensures that the qualifications obtained are recognized by American institutions.* It also means that American students at EHL can apply for financial assistance from the U.S. federal government.
Swiss and European accreditation
Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne is the only hospitality school recognized as part of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Western Switzerland, which warranties the educational excellence provided by all our programs.

* Accreditation is an important factor when it comes to the recognition of higher education qualifications; however, the exact rules on credit transfers, the recognition of qualifications, and admission requirements remain the prerogative of each institution.
