Emirates Academy Press Release - ICE and IOH Accreditation Powered By Docstoc
					   The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management Accredited in
                                 Australia and the UK



The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management (EAHM), one of the world’s leading
hospitality management schools and a part of the Dubai-based luxury hospitality company,
Jumeirah Group, is now accredited in both Australia and the UK.


The International Centre of Excellence in Tourism and Hospitality Education (THE-ICE), an
Australian-based accreditation body, has reviewed the curriculum, staffing and facilities and
determined that EAHM has met their international benchmarks. All THE-ICE accredited
institutions are highly regarded for their hospitality and tourism courses and EAHM has now
joined the ranks of these institutions which include public and private universities from more
than 10 different countries.


Earlier this year, EAHM was also accredited by the Institute of Hospitality (IOH) which is a
UK-based accreditation body that promotes the highest professional standards of
management and education in the international hospitality, leisure and tourism industries.
The IOH conducts extensive research into best practices in the industry and its review of
EAHM’s study programmes led to the awarding of the accreditation.



Commenting on both accreditations, Ron Hilvert, Managing Director of EAHM, said:
“Accreditations and quality assurances have become an integral part of our institutional
review process. We have been benchmarked against top hospitality schools by independent
bodies in the UK and Australia and these accreditations are a further endorsement of the
exceptional work done by our faculty, our students and our colleagues.”


As a result of the accreditations, The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management is now
recognised by the higher education authorities in the UAE, UK and Australia. In addition,
the ongoing academic association with world-renowned hospitality school, Ecole hôtelière de
Lausanne, continues to enhance the quality of all study programmes.
