Acquiring prime skills in the best of Hotel Management Schools
Lausanne Hospitality Consulting (LHC) is the beacon of hospitality and service industries within the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, widely renowned as the best hotel management school in the world.
LHC is the Swiss knowledge development and management advisory company, where hospitality professionals can enhance their skills through the continuing education programmes the company offers. LHC operates on three different levels: EHL Executive Education, Learning Centres, and Advisory Services. The Executive Education services provide new ideas to develop and update individuals in order to better respond to the current needs of the hospitality industry. When it comes to Executive Education, the LHC portfolio of clients embraces a wide range of sectors, such as international hotel chains and independent hotels, luxury retailers, airlines, banks, insurance companies, FMCG retailers, high-end hospitals, manufacturing companies, and hotel associations. Furthermore, the Learning Centres have a global impact since the LHC education development philosophy is committed to delivering sustainable solutions to partners by transferring knowledge around the world to prepare the next generation of hospitality leaders. Advisory Services focus on project planning, project realisation, and business support. This is carried out through a comprehensive approach, from conceptualisation and development, through to the realisation of global hospitality projects.
LHC, ever since 1976, has delivered unique services in more than sixty countries by offering a diversified and exceptional choice of programmes for hospitality management. Coming to terms with the international community, LHC offers a top-notch training that can easily fit each person’s schedule with a range of short on-campus modules, with online assignments in the expertise areas most demanded by the industry. LHC fulfils all purposes, whether the intention is to reinforce certain skills and add recognised certificates to a resume, or acquire further knowledge in advanced topics to lead a team of experts.
As LHC Director, Mr. André Mack mentioned, LHC is the only hospitality advisory agency in the world that offers a combination of the three services: executive education, advisory services, and the development of learning centres. LHC is active worldwide and has offices in Switzerland, China, and India. The company is working with EHL Alumni network, which is composed by over 25,000 members worldwide. There is a powerful network where LHC can demonstrate to governments or regions the long-term added value of working with them.
The EHL Executive Education developed by LHC includes three main programmes: Corporate Management Programme (CMP), Career Development Programmes (CDP), and the New EHL Credit Bearing Programme. The CMP will impart the necessary tools for the personal branding of senior executives through a five-day exclusive programme delivered by international experts and advisors. Just as beneficial is the six-day CDP that encompasses five two-day modular courses designed to enhance knowledge, skills, and mind-set in customer service, cultural awareness, and all the nuances connected to hospitality operations management and business.
The Proficiency in Hospitality Management (PHM) Certificate is awarded to participants completing 20 days of Executive Education at Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne within three years. Fulfilment of the PHM gives to alumni unlimited access to a complimentary two-day module per year. Another exceptional opportunity to acquire the necessary knowledge to create value in hospitality is the new EHL Credit Bearing Programme, which will be launched in the last quarter of 2016.
The same approach and conditions, which apply to CAS Programmes, apply to the EHL Credit Bearing Programme. This postgraduate level is for hospitality Bachelor degree owners and aims to develop specific and advanced competencies in Leadership, Strategy and in Hospitality Operations. The two first programmes of EHL Credit Bearing Programme will focus on Leadership Strategy, Business Development in Hospitality, as well as Customer Service, and Hospitality Operations Management.
Just as noteworthy is the Event Management e-learning programme that targets the critical success factors of global event management through four exciting modules: Project Management for Events, Concepts & Strategies, Experience in Event Management, and Hybrid Events.
What is remarkable about LHC is that besides its exemplifying range of programmes, there is the possibility of customising one according to specific requirements. Many are the courses that can be tailored to meet the needs of an organisation, from supervisory to top management levels. These include the field of food and beverage, accommodation, operational modules, customer service just to mention a few. Furthermore the convenience is that the courses can be held on the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne campus, or anywhere in the world.
The expertise in Management Training and Development of Consultancy Services at LHC is unprecedented, as they have the ability to constantly evolve according to the world’s innovations. For instance, LHC fully recognises that education is no longer about knowledge, but also competencies and mindset. The role of the educator is not solely to transmit specific knowledge to the students, but also to prepare them with the skills to succeed in society. Therefore the role of an educator is to stimulate students’ own learning, and act as facilitator. At LHC, Qualified Learning Facilitator programmes provide the management and faculty the right competencies in the areas of Pedagogy, Andragogy and Epistemology, to thought-provoking students.
Passion and determination at the service of hospitality is part of the DNA of Lausanne Hospitality Consulting. It truly fulfils the objective for which it was founded: distributing knowledge in the art of hospitality and acting as a true ambassador of EHL brand. The know-how acquired through the LHC training equips students to respond comprehensively to market needs in the hospitality industry worldwide.
