Hotel Schools



An investment in knowledge pays the best interest

Benjamin Franklin

EHMA actively supports hotel schools and has developed partnerships with prestigious institutions such as the Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne & Cornell 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, one of the most preeminent schools for hospitality management in Europe. The prize has been renamed in his honour and comprises a certificate signed by the EHMA President and, most importantly, an invitation to EHMA Annual General Meeting, i.e. exclusive access to the entire programme of the conference as well as behind closed doors discussions about trends, challenges and opportunities with top European Hotel Managers.

EHL is also present at EHMA’s General Meetings organizing the business session of the Young EHMA Group as well as granting free online course seats to the members.

Lately EHMA & EHL have expanded their partnership organizing Zoom live keynotes exclusively for members and partners of the Association!

Since 2006 Cornell University, one of the world’s preeminent schools for hospitality management, 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).

Lately EHMA and Cornell have entered into an even stronger partnership offering the opportunity for EHMA members and partners to enjoy preferred rates for a wide range of Cornell’s online courses.

As Benjamin Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest”!
