Swiss watch brand Hublot and the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne – Lausanne hospitality management school – have signed a partnership deal as part of their drive to promote Swiss excellence internationally and to reaffirm their respective commitment to innovation. A luxury hotels Chair, a scholarship fund and a presence on the campus will form the core elements of the agreement.

Hublot will become a “Watchmaking Partner” of EHL, the world’s first hospitality management school, and will support its luxury hotels Chair in particular through active involvement in its programme of courses and conferences. The watch brand will also support EHL’s scholarship fund programme, by providing financial aid to a student throughout his or her Bachelor course.

 The Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne was founded in 1893. It trains future leaders in the hospitality industry and maintains its dynamism through ongoing development. Its constantly updated teaching methods meet the requirements of this rapidly changing sector. Its modern campus, which boasts state-of-the-art technology, will be equipped with Hublot clocks to symbolise the firm partnership. 

Through its association with the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, Hublot is not only delighted to be able to support a Swiss school, an international ambassador for Swiss-made excellence, but also to be able to reaffirm its deep commitment to the values of education, sharing, openness and respect which the school works hard to promote every day. The Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne is proud to be working together with a renowned watchmaking company engaged on a constant quest for excellence and which, like the school itself, knows how to combine expertise with innovation.
