The campus in Singapore is part of the hospitality management school’s plan to remain a global leader in its field and expand its students’ international opportunities.

“Receiving this 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,” said André Witschi, chairman of the EHL Group Board of Governors.

EHL will offer the same Hospitality Management bachelor degree in the island state as it delivers at its campus in Lausanne.

The go ahead is a “great demonstration of confidence in the quality and excellence of our institution,” added Juan F. Perellon, chief risk and compliance officer, EHL Group, and member of the Board of Directors of EHL Campus (Singapore).

It represents an important step in the institution’s international growth strategy, according to EHL Group CEO Michel Rochat.

“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.
