A Solid Business Model

Much more than an academic accreditation, the EHL certification process addresses the institution as a whole to make the school successful and profitable. Our experts offer guidance and support in areas such as Quality Assurance management, Governance & Organization, and Faculty Management.


Three-Step Process

The journey towards excellence in hospitality education begins with the Associate Membership, followed by the Certification Membership and ultimately, Center of Excellence status. This structure, along with continuous guidance and support, quality framework, and included benefits allow the institutions to pass through three levels of association and to elevate the level of institutional quality.


Progressive Benefits

As soon as a school enters the certification process, they begin to access a number of privileges that progress through the three stages of membership.
