Glion has stepped up into the global Top 3 institutions for Hospitality and Leisure Management education, according to the 2020 QS World University Rankings published today (4 March).

The position marks a new high for Glion in this academic discipline, which was launched in 2017 and is fiercely contested by more than 50 institutions spread across the world. In addition, Glion has maintained a position among the global Top 3 in the sub-category of Employer Reputation.

Georgette Davey, Glion’s Managing Director, says, “We are pleased to have continued our rise up the QS World University Rankings for our subject area. To be ranked among the world’s Top 3 institutions is testament to both the quality of our academic programs and the expertise of our faculty. In the past few years we have invested significantly in our program portfolio and faculty, as well as in our campus facilities. I’m delighted that this investment is being reflected in our enhanced academic reputation.

“At the same time, we have maintained our Top 3 global ranking for Employer Reputation. As a hospitality business school offering highly career-focused programs, employability is a key measure of our success. I am proud that 98% of our job-seeking students have one or more employment offers upon graduation and I, together with our dedicated Career & Internship team, will be striving to ensure we maintain this outstanding employability rate.”

The QS Rankings are an authoritative survey of higher education institutions, drawing on the responses of 94,000 academics and 44,000 global employers. In all, more than 13,000 programs taught by 1,368 institutions from 83 countries were ranked this year.
