The new degree course, set to begin in November 2023, includes four 12-week online teaching modules as well as four six-day sessions held at the various campuses, including locations in France and Singapore.

Students will join classes at Glion’s main campus based in Montreux, Switzerland and its London base, as well at the ESSEC Paris-La Défense and Singapore campuses.

“Hospitality management is constantly evolving and progressing in step with the acceleration of new technologies and new customer demands,” said Francine Cuagnier, responsible for marketing at the Glion Institute.

“This program will offer the opportunity to develop soft skills in terms of leadership and innovation, as well as master the financial and economic fundamentals necessary to develop a solid and successful long-term strategy.”

Vincenzo Vinzi, dean and president of the ESSEC Business School, said the partnership would strengthen the institution’s expertise and academic offering in the field of hospitality.

“This will enable professionals to train and transform themselves by acquiring cutting-edge knowledge as well as expertise and soft skills that will empower them to be responsible and influential leaders in the hospitality industry who will be able to combine value creation and sustainability,” he said.

The first participants will be welcomed in November 2023 and will study four modules: New frontiers in the hotel industry; Improving financial performance; Achieving operational excellence; and Guiding transformation.

Students will also carry out an applied business project within 15 months of the start of the course in order to “help students contribute to future solutions as well as adapt to the changes and challenges facing the hospitality industry”.
