Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) will open an international campus in Singapore, expecting to welcome its first cohort of students in the fall of 2021.
The announcement came after the Singaporean authorities regulating private education institutions gave EHL the green light to deliver its bachelor course in Singapore, having received the EduTrust certification.
EHL Campus (Singapore) wants to deliver the same internationally recognised Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management degree as EHL Campus Lausanne, adding first-hand local market knowledge and experience to the curriculum.
Candidates can submit an anticipated application to start their preparatory year at the EHL Campus Lausanne in September 2020 and begin their bachelor course as the first cohort at EHL Campus (Singapore) in the fall of 2021.
André Witschi, chairman of the EHL Group board of governors, sad: “We are very much looking forward to establishing a strong international foothold in one of the world’s most dynamic and competitive countries. Receiving the EduTrust certification is a great milestone which allows us to move forward with the next steps of the project, and namely confirm the location of the premises of our campus in Singapore”.
Opening a campus in Singapore represents an important step forward in the institution’s international growth strategy, said Michel Rochat, EHL Group CEO.
“We go where the market needs us to be, and our goal to open a campus in Singapore will allow us to remain one step ahead, understanding, shaping and stimulating the global hospitality industry, as we have been doing for over a century”, said Rochat.
