EHL Junior Academy
Step into the exciting world of hospitality management in this prestigious summer program for high school and pre-university students. This one or two-week summer camp of interactive workshops will give you a taste of the hospitality bachelor degree.
Junior Program for Future Hospitality Leaders
The EHL Junior Academy offers a balanced program of interactive workshops and fun activities to introduce students to the art of Hospitality Management. You will discover everything that this global industry has to offer from the exciting international culture and lifestyle, to various career opportunities.
To cater to the different types of careers in the hospitality industry, EHL offers its Junior Academy in two different focus areas. You can choose to focus on the business and innovation side of hospitality in Lausanne, or dive in the traditional hospitality and culinary operations in Passugg. The 2-week program combines both experiences on both campuses.
Hands-on classes give you a chance to explore the latest trends in the hospitality sector. In culinary arts, you get to be a chef for a day. On excursions to local five-star hotels and vineyards, you get to see how a successful hospitality business operates.
Our experienced faculty members will introduce you to the concepts of hospitality service excellence and restaurant management. Then, you will develop leadership and team-work skills through real-life hospitality case studies and projects.
