The great thing about EHL is the balance of practical training and business management theories. As a co-founder of an online event planning platform (Delegate) today, the rigorous training EHL provided really equipped me with the right people and organizational management skills that has helped me throughout my entrepreneurship journey.

I am most grateful to have been given the opportunity to graduate from EHL, where our internships, great facilities, curriculum and strong alumni opportunity really helped. Having opened my events & marketing and business development advisory company, EPIQUE Lifestyle today, I hope to hire more alumni as we grow. Passion is key, so is the willingness to adapt which go hand-in-hand with the service business.

EHL attracted me due to its well-rounded curriculum and the opportunity to study in such a diverse and international environment. The two internships as an integral part of the Bachelor program, not only allowed me to apply my acquired knowledge but also advance in interpersonal skills, discover new cities and learn new languages.

EHL has led me to the unique opportunity of joining the Design Development Operations team at Marriott International, by bringing together my passion in aesthetic pleasure and intellectual challenges brought by art and design. With the continuous support from EHL and our extensive alumni network, I am taking small but determined steps towards delivering creative and successful F&B concepts through the lenses of design and operations.
