Hospitality Real Estate & Finance Institute
The Hospitality Real Estate & Finance institute aims to promote research, education, and networking in hospitality real estate and finance. The institute encourages research on hospitality real estate as an investment and asset class that is both academically rigorous and of value for the profession. Findings are disseminated through academic publications, industry conferences and education outreach. We link theory to practice by developing courses and case studies in collaboration with industry experts. In addition to research, the Institute encourages and supports network initiatives such as the private equity conferences and the real estates & finance seminars. Through these events, the Institute facilitates exchanges between academics, students, alumni, and professionals.
Women in Leadership Initiative
Women in Leadership is an EHL initiative with a focus on projects regarding women, and on a wider scale the initiative aims to promote leadership, culture, and policies that foster diverse, balanced, and people-focused environments. It strives so that our students, faculty, staff, and alumni can lead fulfilled professional and personal lives.
Given the substantial untapped female leadership potential across the world, we believe that women aspiring to create a positive impact in organizations and society should be empowered to attain their vision and contribute to leadership diversity.
