The Glion Summer Academy offers you a choice of three holiday courses that give a perfect insight into the world of luxury hospitality and a taste of what our undergraduate business degree students learn:
1. London – one-week course. This week includes field trips to world-renowned hospitality companies including a professional visit to a five-star London establishment and a tour of Wimbledon.
2. Glion – one-week course. You will arrive at our spiritual home – Switzerland. Here you will learn what it takes to put together an event, visit local attractions, and see first-hand how Swiss chocolate is made.
3. Combine London and Glion – two-week course. You can choose to do both the week in London and Switzerland for a two-week course, so you can experience hospitality in two countries.
In both locations, you will participate in introductory lectures and workshops by Glion’s distinguished faculty and visiting speakers. The course also offers you a chance to experience our unique educational model that combines theory with practice, as the program culminates in an on-campus event that you will organize and host yourself. At Glion, you will build lifelong friendships from all over the world, and benefit from studying and learning in an international environment.

If you haven’t been to Switzerland yet, I can say that is great! Is not the best place to learn higher education skills, but Glion is there for it. I met nice people and learned powerful values. I am honored to be part of the alumni group.
