Faculté de Tourisme et de Gestion Hôtelière



The collaboration between the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) and Faculty of Hospitality Management (now the Faculty of Tourism and Hotel Management) is twofold:


In September of 2005, the EHL consulting services of Lausanne Hospitality Consulting opened the Faculty of Hospitality Management. Services included architectural guidance, curriculum development, faculty selection support and training of professors, as well as courses in development. These services were delivered by EHL experts, in Beirut or Lausanne, and were complemented with an extensive executive education program for the Lebanese hospitality industry delivered by EHL faculty.


EHL certifies the programs delivered by the Faculty of Hospitality Management. This certification agreement includes regular academic audits by EHL, various courses delivered by EHL to the faculty and the students in Beirut during each academic year, as well as the possibilities for student exchange.


In terms of people development, EHL and Sagesse University believe in long term sustainable solutions whereby the local market is trained in a highly professional and qualitative way, through the integration of the latest knowledge and developments in the industry.


EHL guides, coaches, recommends and controls, while Sagesse University operates and manages the Faculty of Hospitality Management. EHL transfers its know-how and expertise to the administration, faculty, and staff at the Faculty of Hospitality Management in order to develop the best-in-class hospitality educational institution in Lebanon and neighboring countries. Therefore, EHL auditors and educators travel to Beirut in order to deliver courses to professors and students.  Nevertheless, the core of teaching and research is done by the Faculty of Hospitality Management, who also visit EHL as part of their continuous professional development.
