About Us

Approximately nine years ago as the new city Lavasa began to take shape, the realisation dawned that given just the planned hospitality development in Lavasa alone there was a severe dearth of qualified leadership. Consequently, it was felt that the only way to meet this gap was to set up an institute that truly groomed industry ready management.

This led to a global search with the assistance of Deloitte and the eventual signing of a collaborative agreement with the famed Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne to develop the first sister school in India. Over the past eight years, three batches have now graduated and gone on to take their place with pride in the industry both within India and abroad.

Not only do students learn in what is unequivocally the best facility in the country, they learn to learn using the unique pedagogy and androgogy of Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne. This creates independent thought and the ability to think holistically when faced with a challenge. The Facilitators are all Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne Qualified Learning Facilitators, and the entire process and learning experience is regularly audited by Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne as part of the certification process.
