Glion Institute of Higher Education

Introduction

Glion Institute of Higher Education is an international hospitality management institution 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. As a private, for-profit institution, GIHE has built its reputation for excellence and become a leader in hospitality education worldwide.

More than a simple hotel school, Glion Institute of Higher Education is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) to deliver programs leading to diploma, associate’s, bachelor’s, postgraduate and master’s level qualifications in international hospitality management and event, sport and entertainment management.

Every year, GIHE provides post-secondary education for approximately 1,500 students from 90 countries around the world. The success of our graduates can be attributed to GIHE’s time-tested merger between university academics and the Swiss hotel school model, close ties with the hospitality industry, and an international university environment. For over 50 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.
