Hotel Schools

EHMA actively supports hotel schools and has developed partnerships with prestigious institutions such as the Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne, the Glion Institute of Higher Education, Cornell University, Stenden University.
In 1986 the late Honorary President of the EHMA, Dario dell'Antonia, had the idea to set up an annual award to particularly deserving students of the Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne and of the Glion Institute of Higher Education, both highly renowned Hotel Management Institutes in Switzerland. Both prizes have been renamed in honour of the late EHMA Founder and First President of the Association, Nadio Benedetti, and in honour of the late Honorary President, Dario dell'Antonia.

The EHMA prize comprises a certificate signed by the EHMA President and, most importantly, an invitation to EHMA Annual General Meeting, i.e. exclusive access to the programme of the conference (two-night accommodation, social and educational events) as well as behind closed doors discussions about trends, challenges and opportunities with top European Hotel Managers.

Since 2006 Cornell University is present at EHMA's General Meetings as supporting partner granting to some lucky Ehma Members free course seats for their Professional Development Program in Ithaca, NY (USA).
Also a close collaboration has been established with Stenden University in The Netherlands (former CHN) who participates in the General Meetings by annually presenting a book on "Profiles in Hospitality Management"
