As you guys know I was recently in Switzerland to visit the Glion Institute of Higher Education Campus on Montreux as a part of a press trip.
But before I share more details on what the press trip was about, a little about Glion first!
Glion Institute of Higher Education is one of leading hospitality schools globally. It is ranked 5th in the world for Hospitality Management, 1st for Employer Reputation in Hospitality Management, and 3rd in Switzerland for Hospitality Management in the 2018 QS World University Rankings. Further, Glion has three campuses – the original Glion campus in Glion-sur-Montreux, Switzerland, then one in Bulle, in the district of Gruyère, Switzerland, and another one in University of Roehampton in London, United Kingdom.
I had the opportunity to visit the beautiful Glion campus in Montreux as a part of press trip to learn about their newly launched Masters in Luxury Management & Guest Experience, starting from this year. A one of kind program for people interested in luxury sector, irrespective of previous background, can apply for this program. The one and a half years masters program, with two academic semesters and one internship has a lot to offer through intensive courses, immersive learning and great internship opportunities and global exposure to prepare anyone to excel in the luxury sector.
From what I understood, the newly launched Luxury Management masters will not just be about textbook learning, but also real time experience education and training. There’s a scope for overall development which would be applicable in diverse set of areas in luxury sector itself.
We had multiple sessions on campus to understand as to what the course offers, in depth. Besides that, to get a glimpse of what the school offers, we even had sessions like Table arrangement, chocolate tastings and making chocolate Easter Bunny, followed by an interactive hour to share all details on this masters. We further interacted with some students from different courses just to understand the whole experience of being a student at Glion, and trust me I was tempted to enrol myself too! A learning institution set up in one of the most beautiful locations ever, giving a feel of home away from home, yet preparing its students for the best by the best, is the kind of educational institute we all need!
If this is something you’re looking for, then I believe Glion should be your top choice to consider!
Now here are a few images from the campus and sessions we had in case you missed them on my instagram!
With so much talk about hospitality, I must not forget to mention how I was truly amazed by Glion’s hospitality during this press trip for us bloggers.
From curating a beautiful stay and food experience at Fairmont Palace Montreux to guided trips in Montreux and Gstaad with experiences such as tea tastings with Newby Tea, River Cruise, Orient Train Express and more, this has been one of the best travel experiences so far for me, all thanks to Glion!Let me know if you guys have any query and I’d be happy to help! Much Love, P
