The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management was founded 21 years ago by the global luxury hotel company Jumeirah Group, which holds iconic hotels such as the Burj Al Arab, to prepare the next generation of future hospitality leaders. Since its inception, the university has achieved new heights and continued to spread the passion for hospitality amongst young aspiring leaders.
EAHM recognises and embraces the following values where the student is distinguished by the hallmarks which in combination ensure that our graduates are both recognised as highly professional and highly sort after by employers. We refer to these hallmarks or personal characteristics as the 'Three A's:
Attitude: An EAHM student is encouraged to show an exemplary and positive attitude towards themselves, their fellow students, EAHM staff, Jumeirah colleagues and all external stakeholders.
Attention: Attention is key in the culture of hospitality: attention to self, to the others, and ensuring people feel comfortable and respected.
Attire: Students across all programmes of study at EAHM wear business attire, as future professionals. The EAHM Grooming Guide illustrates what is expected daily on campus.
