Educational Institute to Offer Hospitality Training and Education in Lithuania


October 2011, Orlando, Florida—John Lohr, an international consultant for the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (EI) stationed in Europe, recently visited the Lithuanian Hotel & Restaurant Association (LVRA) and the Vilnius-based International School of Law and Business to present the Global Academic Program (GAP) agreement and Hotel Association Agreement to the presidents of both organizations.  As a result, the International School of Law and Business, the largest private university of applied sciences in Lithuania, has become the newest international school to become one of EI’s GAP partners.  In addition, EI has entered into a Hotel Association Agreement with the Lithuanian Hotel & Restaurant Association (LVRA).

The International School of Law and Business in Vilnius, Lithuania is the country’s leading provider of professional bachelor’s degrees in hospitality, with about 800 students in the program and strong links with the industry. They are also members of the Lithuanian Hotel & Restaurant Association. The International School of Law and Business in Vilnius will become the exclusive provider of the EI hospitality management diploma to students in Lithuania.

"The International School of Law and Business, a leading university of applied sciences in Lithuania, is proud to join the education and certification program of the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute and to become its affiliate in Lithuania. As a leading provider of hospitality education in Lithuania, ISLB will build on cooperation with EI to promote excellence in academic hospitality training and professional development in Lithuania and thus contribute to improving industry standards in the country and worldwide. We are confident that this new partnership will provide valuable tools that will serve to further ISLB’s mission of creating professionals for a progressive society," said Assoc. Prof. Dr. Gitana Jurgelaitienė, Director of the university.

The Lithuanian Hotel & Restaurant Association has been very active in Lithuania and will work with EI to provide industry training and certification to hoteliers in Lithuania. Lohr will visit Vilnius in October to formally present the association agreement to the LVRA members at their yearly conference.
 
Mrs. Evalda Šiškauskienė, president of the LVRA commented that we (LVRA) "are very happy to cooperate with EI and we see our partnership as a very efficient way to deliver training to our members‘ staff.  Our country (Lithuania) has big problems with emigration, which forces us to react quickly to market changes. EI‘s certification and training will be a good solution for our large training needs.“
