Grisha Davidoff“I decided to study hospitality management at Glion because in contrast with other schools, we are a business school specialized in hospitality. This means that you get to know the foundation of hotel operations without losing the entrepreneurial, financial and general management courses that other business schools may offer to you and hence, you do not close your doors to other industries”

Grisha Davidoff, Bachelor student.

Global Exposure

A career in hospitality and tourism, or event management requires graduates to have a certain level of global exposure and experience.  As Utkarsh Gupta, Bachelor student in Event, Sport & Entertainment management says, “the best thing about this program is the hands on learning in the initial semesters which helped me to get an idea of what I was going to do during my internships and in the future. The number of group projects and exposure to real life events is a real advantage to gain success.”
