The EHL Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality (EHL SSTH) has successfully met the high quality standards of the following accreditation institutes:


Accredited through the Swiss federal government (SFBI) framework for HF programs

EHL SSTH is the only hotel management school to offer both German and English HF Swiss Professional Degrees to become a certified Swiss Hôtelière-Restauratrice/Hôtelier-Restaurateur, which are recognized by the Swiss Confederation.

The Swiss Professional Degree (HF degree) has a very high quality standard, both in its operational training and management education. The State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SBFI) states: "The HF degree programs impart skills to students that enable them to take on specialist and management responsibility independently in their field. They are labor market-oriented and, in particular, promote the ability to think methodically and synergistically."


Classification as tertiary education

The Swiss Professional Degree (HF degree) taught at Swiss Colleges such as EHL SSTH is classified as level 6, tertiary B education according to the national and European qualifications frameworks.

Tertiary level B denotes higher education for professionals learning a trade. A level 6 qualification is the same level as a bachelor's.


Training excellence

EHL SSTH has successfully completed its pre-accreditation for the internationally renowned THE-ICE quality label for tourism and hospitality education.

EHL SSTH is now an associate of THE-ICE and was cited as a model Swiss hotel management school with a great deal of "heart and soul".


With the recognition of 90 ECTS points of the Bologna system

The University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HES-SO) has recognized the German and English HF degree program "Dipl. Hôtelière-Restauratrice / Hôtelier-Restaurateur HF " of EHL SSTH with an equivalent value of 90 ECTS points for entering the Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management of the EHL.

This recognition gives EHL SSTH graduates the opportunity to further their academic education by transitioning directly into their bachelor's degree program. They thus become part of the Bologna system, which unifies European universities together in higher education.
