  • Good morning and welcome to the Glion postgraduate program Webinar!
    My name is Lucie and I’m the moderator for this session.

  • This session will cover different points as such as an overview of our school, the hospitality industry and an overview of our Postgraduate programs.
    Then, our current students enrolled in the postgraduate program will give you more insights of how it is going so far for them.
    Finally, we will give you some information about the application process.
    Now I let Mrs Georgette Davey postgraduate program leader give you more details about our school and our post graduate programs.

    Good morning! My name is Georgette Davey, I hope that everyone is doing great...

  • Lucie: Who is this program made for?
    Georgette: Well, this program is for two different audience....
  • Glion Institute of Higher Education is comprised of two campuses, one in Glion overloooking Lake Geneva and above the famous town of Montreux. This campus is dedicated to the beginning of the studies where students will do their craft-based learning.

    The second campus is in Bulle in the « Canton of Fribourg » at about 30 minutes drive from the Glion Campus. Bulle campus is dedicated to advanced studies and functions more like a university where students are more independent.

    IMPORTANT: Depending which semester you start, you might be either on bulle or glion campus....

  • Great International Body

    Type of programs

    Neasc Accreditation

    Internship placement: Internship officies here to help students find their internship

    Companies coming on campus to recruit students.


  • Balance between practice and theory + internship
    International faculty from all around the world with background in the industry
    Tailor made program (PGD)

    Wide range of career opportunities and internship opportunites
    Alumni network who come on campus to help us and update the courses we teach to be in line with the today’s industry.

    Student life is great : heart of switzerland, travels, sport activities and leisure facilities on campus. Everything is made to relax students and make them socialized with others.
  • When considering an education, there are 4 questions you should ask yourself.
    The 1st one is about accreditation. Is the university you are considering accredited, hence will your degree be recognized internationally.

    The 2nd question you should ask yourself is related to the professional world and the industry. Does the industry value and recognize the graduate of the industry.

    The 3rd question is about internationalism of the school. How international is the student body and why is it important to be in an international environment.

    The last question is about internship and career. Do recruiters come to the university and who comes? Where do students go and what do they do.

    So now we are going to look at each of these questions and provide you some answers and tips to look at.

    So let’s look at the first one which is accreditation and its importance

  • Glion is accredited at university level by the Commission on Institution of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and colleges in the USA.

    There are only 3 schools accredited by NEASC up to the degree level in Switzerland: Glion, Les Roches and Lausanne. Other schools also accredited by NEASC such as SHMS / HIM are only accredited at non degree level which means up to associate degree or Diploma.

    Having the right level of accreditation by a world class accrediting body insures the quality of what our students are learning and where and how they are taught. It serves as a protection for students and parents as to the level and quality of education we are offering and allows transfer to and from other accredited universities.
    NEASC is also the same accrediting body of other prestigious and ivy leagues in the USA such as Harvard & MIT
  • Let’s now look at the industry, and how they value our school.
  • Large industry and a lot of career opportunities
    Grows of 4.4% between 2010 and 2020
  • .
  • .
  • 2 main tracks

    - Do they choose their modules as a tailor made program?
    - How the craft based learning is divided between semesters and what are they doing?
  • GLION HOTEL SCHOOL ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES

    Post Graduate Programmes

  • Each semester, we have over 30 international hotel chains, luxury hotels and resorts, event management companies, financial establishments and recruiting agencies come to recruit our students, whether for internships and / or permanent positions.

    The companies you see on the screen are companies that have come or will come during this semester including top international hotel chains such as Accor, Fours seasons, InterContinental, Fairmont, the Peninsula Group, Luxury Resorts & Hotels Group in the USA and Carribean, Starwood hotels which includes Sheraton, Le Méridien, Westin, St-Regis and other hotels. Hyatt International, marriott Hotel as well as the group Rezidor which includes Radisson SAS, Country Inn, Missoni, Park Inn and the Regent Hotels regularly come to our school to recruit students.

    With our event, sport and Entertainment, we have for example iluka which is an event company highly involved in the next Beijing games which come to Glion to recruit young talents as well as Disney.

    Financial establishment such as private banks are also recruiting our students in the financial track as they particularly appreciate their professional attitude, motivation and their service oriented mind.




  • .
  • To illustrate the success companies have in finding motivated professionals and how successful our students are in securing a job upon graduation, students have an average of 4 job offers which results in 94% of our students already with a contract signed or with several offers to choose from and this on graduation day.

    This shows that the industry does have many job opportunities to offer to our students and that our students are fully employable and do have a job when they graduate. Unfortunately this is not the case for many other type of education for which it can be very difficult to obtain a job upon graduation.

  • .
  • Lucie: Thank you everyone for your time. We hope that you enjoyed this presentation.
    If you need any other information, please contact us by email at info@glion.edu.
    We will send you an email soon to give you the recorded session so you can review it in detail.

    We will be still here for 15 minutes so you can ask more questions with the Q&A box.
    Have a great day and we look forward to meeting you soon!
