GATE - Global Academy of Tourism and Hospitality Education is an award-winning, forward-thinking academy that has become an integral part of the world’s most dynamic and largest industry: Tourism & Hospitality. GATE is also the first academy in Nepal to win an international award at the World Hospitality Awards, “Most Innovative Training Program 2011”, and “Best Professional Success 2015”. Having won the National Awards for “Food Safety” awarded by the Government of Nepal, the academy has an abundance of educational wealth to offer. 

GATE was started in May 2007. The college is located in Mandikhatar, Kathmandu, and has since been a pioneer in exploring, developing, providing, and enhancing Hospitality & Tourism Education in Nepal. Since its humble beginnings, GATE has been serving society and the people by giving various academic, skill-based, vocational (short/long) courses as well in coordination with CTEVT Nepal & the Australian Government recognized course: SIT30816 Certificate III in Commercial Cookery delivered in partnership with TAFE NSW (RTO 90003). GATE is considered by many to now be Nepal’s leading Hospitality College.  

And recently, GATE became a certified member of the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, commonly referred to as EHL, which consistently is ranked as the best hospitality management school in the world. It has campuses in Switzerland and Singapore and 10 certified members around the globe. For over 128 years, EHL has pioneered Swiss hospitality education methods and set the standards of excellence in this field. Today, we combine the Swiss values of academic rigor and industry practice with creativity and innovation for modern hospitality management degrees that prepare graduates to lead the future of the industry and the world. 

Asian students especially can now earn, with lower fees and expenses, the most respected EHL accredited degree here in Nepal: Bachelor in International Hospitality Management and have the mobility among the EHL campuses and in the certified member schools.

Bachelor in International Hospitality Management is internationally recognized and has been mapped to Bachelor Degree of Tribhuwan University.
