New hospitality degrees and faculty appointments unveiled

Glion Institute of Higher Education has announced its new portfolio of master’s degrees available across campuses in the UK and Switzerland. First programme intakes are in September 2019 to meet growing demand among students and industry employers for relevant postgraduate hospitality education.

Adding to the current MSc in international hospitality business, Glion will offer masters degrees in Switzerland in luxury management and guest experience, and in hospitality, entrepreneurship and innovation. In the UK it is launching an MSc ub finance, real estate and hotel development.

Each of these new programmes includes two academic semesters and one six-month internship. They all blend rigorous academic theory with experiential learning, including industry-relevant field trips, case studies and student-led projects and events.

“The launch of these new programmes marks an exciting milestone for Glion, enabling us to serve a new audience of advanced learners and career changers with our unique educational model and standards of excellence. The combination of best-practice theory and real-world application prepares them to be immediately employable after graduation,” said Georgette Davey, managing director at Glion.

The expansion of the postgraduate offering at Glion is led by long-standing and newly-appointed faculty members and industry leaders in their respective fields.
