Luxury Hospitality School Paris
Opened in 1993 and after an investment of ten million euros over the last ten years, the Luxury Hotelschool Paris is investing more to adapt to the new demands of students, hoteliers and consumers. Its campus, located in the heart of the 8e arrondissement of Paris, received five million euros in renovation work to combine luxury, modernity and conviviality.
“It is increasingly difficult to attract young people to work in the hotel industry, but luxury remains very attractive. That’s why we invested so that our students are immersed in this universe from the moment they enter the school, with its luxurious decor, right through to the classrooms. Outside of school, we also take our students to explore and immerse themselves in this culture by discovering the great hotels and taking them to lunch in Michelin-starred restaurants.“, Explain Arnaud Bouvier, President of Luxury Hotelschool.
A focus on international and digital issues
The Luxury Hotelschool Paris already offers joint programs with Hotelschool of Lausanne (EHL) – the world’s leading hotel school – and aims to accelerate its international development by enabling a greater number of students to access the “French Touch” of luxury management. With this in mind, the school has appointed its ambassador, Sébastien Siffritt, to expand the school’s network of partner universities and hotels around the world. The school is also planning a new round of funding to support and accelerate this phase of expansion.
Another factor favoring the internationalization of the school, the launch of the first Bachelor in Hospitality Management 100% online in France.
