New Delhi: 2020 QS World University rankings: Soon after the confirmation of its Michelin star, Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) has been ranked as the world’s leading institution for hospitality and leisure management education.
Once again, the results of the QS World University rankings confirm the central role of Switzerland in the evolution of the global hospitality industry, as well as EHL’s status as an absolute reference in hospitality management education.
Michel Rochat, EHL Group CEO, reacted to the news by stating that “Switzerland’s tradition of excellence and its education model continue to be recognized worldwide”. EHL now also ranks among traditional management schools, coming in 7th place in Switzerland. “Our positioning is no longer that of a school purely dedicated to the hotel industry. Our graduates are very competitive in a multitude of industries where the customer experience is a central tenet, such as luxury, banking or aviation. So we aren’t surprised to be compared with the best business schools. With two campuses in Switzerland and one in Singapore, as well as an innovation village open to our students, we are proud of the unique offer that has been developed in recent years,” explains Michel Rochat.
“Switzerland continues to set the example in terms of academic excellence, competitiveness and innovation. The canton of Vaud in particular, with its centers of excellence, the ambitious development strategy of the Department for the Promotion of Economy and Innovation (SPEI), and also thanks to the intelligence of each player to leverage this exceptional network, has become a leading hub for the creation and transmission of knowledge, recognized throughout the world,” concludes Michel Rochat.
