Where in the world will your Glion internships take you?

In this article

Our two Bachelor’s degrees come with professional internships as standard. These are bespoke experiences: you choose your destination, industry sector and position according to your preferences. In this article you’ll discover more about the global internship experience…

To learn is one thing. To do is quite another. Even better when you can immerse yourself in new countries and cultures alongside your practical work experience. These are the reasons why we make professional internships a crucial component of our Bachelor’s in International Hospitality Business and Bachelor’s in Luxury Business.

Here’s what you can look forward to with your globetrotting internship experience:

Love travel and new experiences? Internships are made for you! Your Bachelor’s degree offers two internships and (subject to visa restrictions) you have an open choice of where to go.

One of the highlights of every semester is Recruitment Day, where the industry flocks to us to find and recruit the talent they need.


“The Bachelor’s program internships I completed at The Ritz-Carlton Dubai and the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo were fundamental in my employability. I remember them both as great formative moments in my learning, not just professionally but also personally. Learning concepts and theories in a classroom is needed, but operating those practices into a real-life situation is what makes you learn and grow.”

BBA graduate Benedetta Romano

Your internships will make you more employable

How do you prove to an employer that you’ve got what it takes? No matter how well you interview, there will always be doubts; and maybe that other candidate has actually worked in the sector, giving them a big advantage.

The internship is your chance to show your best side. And it works: a significant proportion of our students end up taking a job at a company they’ve interned with.

All these reasons – and more – add up to why the internship is such an essential part of your Glion Bachelor’s program. Why wait? Let’s get to work!
