You need a computer with a webcam and access to internet in order to complete the online interview.

The analytical and quantitative aptitude test

This test is composed of 3 different exams in order to evaluate your leadership, interpersonal skills, analytical reasoning and motivation. 

If you pass the online evaluation, you will be invited to take part in a motivation day. The motivation day is an opportunity for us to examine your interests and abilities in much greater depth. 

Our motivation days involve the following activities: 

  • An interview
  • A team-building exercise

The interview

The interview is not a test of your knowledge, and you will not be quizzed on specific facts. The aim is to assess your motivation, your potential and your suitability for the demands of the hospitality industry. We will ask you to tell us about your experience and your expectations. Our questions will focus, for example, on any summer jobs you may have had in the hospitality industry, your extracurricular activities and your international exposure.

The team-building exercise

Working in a team will be an important part of your studies at EHL. We therefore would like to see if you enjoy teamwork and if you have the necessary skills needed to work successfully as part of a team.

Preparing for your motivation day

No specific preparation is needed. However, to make sure you are choosing the right career, you should find out as much as you can about the hospitality industry, the career opportunities it offers and the training options available in our international hospitality management degree program.

Once you receive your final decision, you must complete your enrollment on the EHL online portal.
