What Matters Most

At EHL, we believe that the future is going to need good leaders, and more specifically, leaders for good. Consequently, we are embedding an environmentally and socially sustainable ethos in everything we do: academics, research, operations and on all our campuses, to develop benevolent leaders for a better future. Across our three campuses, the EHL community is striving towards this goal by making our core values come alive, implementing initiatives for greater equality, hosting activities that nurture diversity, and creating health and wellbeing support for students, faculty, and staff to thrive.

Our Values

As an ambassador of the Swiss hospitality tradition, EHL draws on the essence of "hospitality know-how", blending it with the latest management education tools and techniques. Our aim is to develop future leaders who are equally knowledgeable about the past and focused on the future.

Today, three core values inspire our daily activities. These values fit harmoniously with the codes of hospitality - they stand out as EHL's timeless character, linking all generations of past and future graduates.
