What is YHS?

YHS began as an annual event at the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne in 2010. It was the first entirely student run hospitality Summit, bringing together leading hospitality management schools from around the globe. YHS has now grown into an association, addressing the gap between Educational Institutions, the Hospitality Industry and its Young Talents. The different features of YHS, which follow the distinct YHS approach, tackle pertinent employment related questions. They all pursue the same mission of improving professional opportunities of young talents in hospitality by aligning its three main stakeholders regarding their mutual expectations, capacities and aspirations.
