Glion Institute of Higher Education is an international hospitality management university in Switzerland. Opened in the fall of 1962 in the former Bellevue Hotel, Glion Hotel School (as it was then named) was the first private, university-level Swiss hotel management school.
More than a simple hotel school, Glion offers degree programs that combine industry knowledge with managerial skills and personal development.
Every year, Glion Institute of Higher Education provides post-secondary education for approximately 1,500 students from 90 countries around the world. The success of our graduates can be attributed to Glion’s time-tested merger between university academics with the Swiss hotel school model, close ties with the hospitality industry and an international university environment. For over 40 years, thousands of graduates have gone through the "Glion Experience" and carried on the famous "Glion Spirit" to represent our institution as leaders in the hospitality industry
As a part of Laureate Hospitality Education, an international group of eight renowned hospitality schools, Glion’s students can take advantage of transfer opportunities to study at Kendall College in Chicago, USA or at Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School, in Leura and Sydney, Australia.
