Work and study part-time in hospitality

Why do we offer part-time studies?

The demand for qualified specialists and executives is just as high in the hotel and catering industry as it is in many other industries.

As a management position requires knowledge gained through many years of professional experience and specific further education, Berlin Hotel Management School (HOFA Berlin – https://hotelfachschule-berlin.de/ ) offers a good opportunity for further education after initial vocational trai...

Global Perspectives on International Student Employability

While the board letters are usually original work from different schools, I would like to bring this report to the attention of EUHOFA members. The research is interesting both for “destination countries”, like EU, Australia, Canada, US, as well as “source countries”, like Nepal, India, China, Kenya, etc.

“Student Employability” in the context of this report does not relate to the extent education providers have prepared their students for...

Dear Euhofa members,

I do hope that you are all fine and your schools, universities, institutes are running successfully and students are ambitious and eager to learn and leave our institutes well educated for the national and international hospitality world. 

In this time of the year, you will finally be able to find some time to sit back, relax and spend the rest of the year together with your family and friends. It is also this time of the year to have the chance to connect with you, dear Euho...

EUHOFA PEARLS

Besides student exchanges, the school finds it important that each year teachers go on International internships.  This past year several teachers have done International internships at Hotels and visited International schools abroad.  Some went to England, some went to Spain and others went to the USA and Mexico. To make this easy, we make use of our Euhofa network. Throughout the year there are different initiatives and projects between our school and other Euhofa member schools....

Dear Euhofa friends,


I reckon you will all agree with me when I say that safety, food and love are some of the bare necessities of modern life. The same essentials that make for a memorable dining experience. Feeling welcome and comfortable as soon as you step through the doors of a restaurant. A time to relax, unwind and enjoy. Nevertheless, the taste of the food is a guest’s primary concern. It is all about flavour rather than finesse, as Nigella Lawson the famous British TV cook puts it. Isn’...

Please find the link below which is an initiative of the Edge Hotel School to promote hospitality as a career option.

This may be of use to EUHOFA members as part of their own promotional initiatives.

It is freely available and can be disseminated as widely as possible.
It may not be entirely appropriate for everyone but if it’s useful they are more than welcome to use it.

Teaching is 2025 is pretty awesome!

Today, 1st March 2025, I have a meeting with my colleagues. It is our first session working on our new training packs, to go on sale for the 2031 intake. In 2021, we founded the company H² PSI, or ‘High Performance Skills in Hospitality Investment’. We are three partners: Yi Ling, from Singapore, with a PhD in Neurosciences (Harvard), David, from California, with a master’s in Digital engineering (Tokyo) and me, Hans, an EHL graduate.

Together, we realised that...

Students in their final year at the Edge Hotel School undertake a group consultancy project that is commissioned by senior industrialist to review and solve a specific issue within their operation. This is a major piece of work and contributes to their final degree classification.

These quotes demonstrate the value these projects can bring to the industry and how they often challenge current thinking:

Introduction

For those in the northern hemisphere January can be seen as the cruellest month. Short, dark, cold days, tax returns and the Easter holidays still months away. This newsletter highlights two items to encourage your curiosity and in the first, provide a smile.

The first article is reprinted from eHotelier and highlights how good PR can be achieved from what seems to be a relatively simple, noncontroversial activity,  the mathematics that can be applied to producing the perfect roast po...
