"This degree taught me how international business relationships and processes work.I understand much better how people from other cultures work and solve problems and I believe that I have learned to work with these people more efficiently than when I started my studies... I definitely benefit from EHL's good reputation...[it's] a great advantage, especially when looking for a suitable job. The combination of HF diploma and bachelor's degree gives an applicant more decisive arguments in contract negotiations."

"I like that the class sizes are small in Passugg, it allows better interactions between the students and the professors. Classes are also very interactive, and whenever we have questions, we are not afraid to ask. It brings the student body also closer together and integration is facilitated."
"The combination of theoretical and practical training helped me a lot for my internship. I did a 6-month internship in Wiesbaden in the 5-star luxury house Nassauer Hof. I worked for four months at the reception and two months in the Michelin-star restaurant Ente. What I liked best was the contact with customers. I was treated like a full-fledged employee and my work was very much appreciated."
"Belonging to the EHL family gives me inspiration, motivation and self-confidence. Since then I have rediscovered myself as an entrepreneur, which I would not have thought of before starting at EHL."
