Accreditation
It was the first management college in the world to have a dual accreditation NEASC and HES. In Switzerland, the school is the only institute of hospitality management of the 'Haute Ecoles Spécialisées' (University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland) level offering advanced programs which are recognized by the Swiss government. Its transition to a reviewed Bachelor of Science (BSc) program allows a European Bologna process accreditation. The school integrates market trends and new technologies through projects done in collaboration with industry partners, applied research and consulting.[citation needed] NEASC accreditation guarantees that the level of the EHL Bachelor hospitality degree is equivalent to Bachelor degrees in the US and internationally. It also facilitates credit transfer and degree recognition by American institutions. Furthermore, it allows American students to benefit from financial aid schemes of the federal government. Bologna compliance ensures acceptance everywhere in Europe; HES-SO recognition permits application to other universities in the Swiss system (Rectors’ Conference Agreement, December 2007), not necessarily in the field of hospitality.
