FACULTY PROFILES

The Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne balances academic teaching with professional experience, applied research and consulting.

This results in learning that is at once applied and hospitality-focused, and academically grounded.

The faculty includes:

  • Practitioners, with vast practical experience in many of the world's top hotels and restaurants
  • Former industry executives from the many different fields affiliated with hospitality
  • Master's and Ph.D-educated teacher scholars.

EHL professors are chosen not just because of their academic and professional expertise, but also because they are excellent teachers, fascinated by their subject and capable of inspiring their students. Most faculty are extensively engaged with their students in activities that go well beyond the limits of the classroom.

As is the case in the hospitality industry itself, EHL requires different faculty to work closely together on common projects. The Bachelor programme, in particular, is partly organized around interdisciplinary modules. All programmes involve projects and events that bring together many different disciplines.

Faculty members also ensure constant interaction with industry. In addition to research, many teach in EHL’s executive education courses and carry out consulting mandates in countries all over the world. They are constantly in touch with the issues and daily challenges encountered by professionals in the field.

They participate in campus events and international conferences as speakers and panel members. Information on the latest industry trends is incorporated into their teaching and channelled back to students.
