Among the 3 best hospitality schools on the world
Testament to the ‘Glion Spirit’ of achievement, Glion Institute of Higher Education is ranked as one of the three best hospitality management schools in the world for an international career.
Representatives from around 100 companies come to our campuses each year to recruit students for internships and employment in international hotel chains, events, luxury business, finance and other service sectors.
Glion has been at the forefront of excellence in hospitality education for over 50 years. Since its founding in 1962 by Walter Hunziker and Frédéric Tissot, Glion has retained a sense of traditional Swiss hospitality while adapting its programs and courses to an ever-changing industry.
Glion is one of only three Swiss hospitality schools to be accredited at university level by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. NEASC is one of six regional accrediting bodies recognized by the US Secretary of Education. Glion is accredited at university level and thereby delivers its own undergraduate and graduate awards.
Glion Institute of Higher Education is accredited by the New England Associations of Schools and Colleges, Inc. through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education. Accreditation of an Institution of Higher Education by the New England Association indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment for institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process.
An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purpose through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional publications and the most recent audited financial statement, or a fair summary thereof, are available upon request. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation. Accreditation by the New England Association is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates.
Glion is represented by 10,000 alumni who have forged its reputation for excellence as an international business school offering event management and hospitality degrees which nurture leadership skills. In addition to top international hotel chains, our graduates are also valued in other service sectors where customer experience and loyalty are key to success. Events, finance, retail and luxury brand companies all value the soft-skills of cultural awareness, communication, and rigorous work ethic that our graduates embody.
