This brand-new program, developed with EHL Advisory Services, the consulting and executive professional training unit of the EHL Group, is aimed at managers in the hotel industry who wish to acquire additional management and strategy skills, and who wish to work in a team on an innovative project. The program is particularly aimed at managers who will have to assume greater responsibilities in the near future.

The program is divided into 14 blocks of 3 days a year and is aimed at hoteliers in office. The training is delivered in French and English and leads to an executive certificate in Luxury Hospitality Management jointly delivered by both institutions.

Classes starting in September 2019 will take place on the Luxury Hotelschool campus in Clichy, close to the L'Oréal research centre, as well as in luxury hotels in Paris. Half the lecturers are from the Luxury Hotelschool, and the other half from EHL.

Our alliance with Lausanne offers graduates worldwide recognition of their competencies "says Arnaud Bouvier, President of the Luxury Hotelschool.
