Program Pace

The program is designed to fit your work and personal schedule. You can focus on a work-life balance and complete the program at your pace by spacing the modules. The completion time is between 24 and 36 months.

Distance learning modules

The four distance learning modules give you a refresh of hospitality business fundamentals, before diving into advanced practical application. Each module takes 15 weeks to complete and is broken down into three courses of five weeks each. At the end of each course, your knowledge will be evaluated to validate your mastery of the subject. You will need to plan 8 to 12 hours of study time per week during the distance learning modules.

On-site modules

The two on-site modules require you to travel either to the EHL campus, in Lausanne, or to global locations which are tied to hospitality. The “Building High-Performing Teams” module is a blended module containing two distance learning courses and one on-site course on the EHL campus. The “Meet the Experts” module is fully on-site, in global locations with strong hospitality ties. Live Connect Sessions For each of the four distance learning modules, six live connect sessions are held every two weeks, on average, for two hours. The sessions are a live virtual classroom with faculty where you can ask questions and interact with classmates.
