World-leading hospitality management institution Glion Institute of Higher Education is launching a new set of online certificate courses in March 2019
Montreux, Switzerland (PRWEB) - Glion Institute of Higher Education, a world-leading hospitality management institution with campuses in Switzerland and the UK, is launching a new set of online certificate courses, available from March 2019.
In response to new training requirements and learning preferences among executives in the field of hospitality management, Glion has devised a series of online courses on spa management, revenue management and hotel valuation, delivered by leading experts in their respective fields.
Courses occur four times per year and span two weeks, with 4 to 6 hours of personal effort per week, including videos, readings, discussions, peer-reviewed assignments, quizzes and a final exam.
“We see a change in the need of training of mid-career hospitality professionals,” says Cécile Rébillard, Head of Digital Education at Glion. “As the industry is consolidating in more mature markets, middle managers are looking to build their expertise in specific business topics to advance their careers.”
The new Glion online courses are hosted by FutureLearn, The Open University’s online education platform offering courses from organisations such as King’s College London, Monash University, the British Council and Accenture.
Dr Pierre Ihmle, Chief Academic Officer at Glion’s parent company Sommet Education, said: “This latest academic offer shows our commitment to prepare and equip the present and future hospitality leaders with the skills and knowledge to succeed. Online courses are an ideal format for selective and remote learning, accommodating the work schedule of today’s professionals.”
