Over the past decade, Glion Institute of Higher Education has consistently figured among the top hospitality management school rankings and awards. This year, Glion was ranked the No.1 Hospitality School for Employer Reputation in the QS World University Rankings 2018. International employers chose Glion as their number one source for the most competent, innovative and effective graduates.

We’re proud to be No.1, but more importantly, such a high standing with employers ensures our students benefit from strong relationships, with prestigious, international brands.

“One of the reasons why I love going to Glion is the quality of the students that are provided to us. What I really love about Glion’s students is how grounded they are, and some of the fantastic internships that the school provides them with. I look forward to continuing the long established relationship that we have with Glion and hopefully bringing on more Glion students who will be the future leaders of the Mandarin Hotel Group.” Jon Dawson, Director of Human Resources at London’s Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park

Glion is ranked the top hospitality school by hiring managers

On average, every student at Glion receives three internship offers every semester. On graduation day, our employment data shows that 98% of job-seeking graduates have one or more employment opportunities ready to start immediately.

Glion students are amongst the most sought after in the hospitality industry, which is why more than 150 companies come to our campuses every year to recruit top talent. Including:

  • Hilton
  • Mandarin Oriental
  • The Ritz-Carlton
  • Hublot
  • Bloomberg
  • J. P. Morgan

The graduates that recruiters want

Speaking about why The Landmark London believe Glion is the top hospitality management school, Front Office Manager, Anastasia Schneider, said: “We feel that these are the most passionate individuals in hospitality. Uniqueness and personality is everything that we look for and that’s what we find when we come to Glion”.

“Candidates from Glion are very professional, very hard working, very dedicated as well, which are all qualities that are great for our company.” Mitchell Goggins, Customer Support Team Leader, Bloomberg

David Morison, Assistant Director of Human Resources at Jumeirah, finds in Glion students the perfect ambassadors for the Jumeirah brand: “I’ve been to Glion four or five times and I find the students to be very presentable, very confident, very driven and very ambitious, which is great for what we are looking for at Jumeirah”.

Creating the next generation of leaders

At Glion Institute of Higher Education, we develop leaders and business managers, for the hospitality industry and beyond. It’s why we are ranked the top hospitality school for employer reputation and also why Sridhar Pathigari, Talent Manager at The Arts Club, recruits from Glion: “The hospitality industry is in need of great leaders, and it’s only with the collaboration of distinguished educational institutions like Glion partnering with something like The Arts Club that it can be possible, which is why we’re here”.

Glion – ranked No. 1 by employers in the QS World University Rankings

In this ranking, Glion earned the highest score (100) in the QS Employer Reputation metric that is based on over 40,000 responses to the survey which asks employers to identify those institutions from which they source the most competent, innovative, effective graduates.

Held twice a year, our Career and Recruitment Days provide our students with the chance to network with some of hospitality’s biggest brands. For employers, it’s the chance to engage with and often offer employment to the future leaders of the industry. Our next Career and Recruitment Days are on Monday 15th October in Bulle, Switzerland and Thursday 18th October in London.
