        EHL Dress Code and Code of Conduct

        Respect for others, as well as respect for one-self, entails wearing elegant and professional clothes. When employers come to recruit their future employees at EHL, it is not only because of the knowledge and know-how students acquire during the studies, but also because of the way of being and the way of behaving which is partially translated through a well-kept appearance. This competence, alongside positive attitude and ease of contact in a multicultural environment, is a differentiating element of our institution and helps us to establish reputation and increase the attractivity of EHL students for employers.

        "You only have one chance to make a good first impression"
