Your future in hospitality and beyond
Hospitality is more than an industry. It is a state of mind. A commitment to service excellence, embellished by the personal qualities of empathy, cultural fluency, resilience and professional polish which are so highly valued within every customer facing sector.
As a Glion graduate, you will go out into the professional world having developed these qualities and, more importantly, practiced them in real-life settings. It will make you exceptionally employable – with 94% of our job-seeking students having at least one employment offer upon graduation.
And it gives you outstanding career versatility: 51% of our alumni go into tourism, hospitality and F&B (food and beverage), while 49% move into a wide spectrum of other sectors including FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), luxury goods and services, aviation, marketing, events, banking and finance.
