Testimonials of some of our members:
EUHOFA offers an exceptional platform to exchange amongst top tier hospitality schools from around the world. Such a strong network yields undeniable advantages in helping the EHL Group remain at the forefront of hospitality management education, by developing and strengthening academic relations, sharing best-practices, and further growing our business.
The strong ties and international dimension fostered by EUHOFA allow us to combine our efforts in promoting the hospitality industry and in providing the highest level education for its future leaders. I firmly believe that this network has high added value for myself, the EHL Group and its global network of schools.

During the 15 years as a member of EUHOFA International, I have been able to construct an international network of Hotel, Tourism, Hospitality and Culinary School Directors, most of whom have become personal friends.
EUHOFA International gave me the opportunity to travel around the world, to attend congresses and visit schools and friends. This offered opportunities to exchange ideas and knowledge of educational systems and programs. A great intercultural network which has inspired many of us !

As my friend and EUHOFA board member Martin Dannenmann told me at the time, “with this group, in the beginning you start out on the outside but year after year of being involved you move more and more toward the center.” He could not have been more right. For the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute(EI), EUHOFA membership has been invaluable as it has allowed us to network with the directors of the top hotel schools in Europe. The relationship however has not just been one sided, we have added value to EUHOFA membership by introducing members to innovative new programs such as the STR Global Certified Hotel Industry Analytics and Trip Advisor Reputation Management trainings. As a member and sponsor we look forward to our future involvement with EUHOFA and to continuing our patch towards the center, in ways of business but also friendship.

Beijing Foreign Affairs school founded in 1980 and it has been named the first batch of national key vocational schools, the national advanced unit after more than 30 years unremitting efforts of several generations. Since the school occupies a higher development platform, it is necessary to seek a bigger development space to realize the internationalization. Hotel management and service is our leading professional which requires more international vision, and draw lessons from leading hotel management schools and universities all over the world to develop itself. School sets as their educational objective the attainment of national and international reputation and is making a great leap by implementing its internationalization. EUHOFA International is a prestigious association of hotel school directors and deans of hospitality colleges and universities who work continuously to ensure the highest quality of education in their institutes. Being a member of EUHOFA provides the opportunity of networking on international level and new possibilities for exchanges of top programs. So in 2010, our school applied to join the EUHOFA, becoming the first member of mainland China. School sets as their educational objective the attainment of national and international reputation.
