Visiting lecturers and mentors, such as EHL Alumni, executives from major hotels, and start-up owners, play a significant role in the learning process by contributing their personal experience and insights through campus lectures and one-on-one mentoring activities.

Over the past year at EHL, we have adopted a Hyflex distance learning model for our current students:
