To prepare their students for a management career in the global hospitality industry, Glion Institute of Higher Education and Les Roches International School of Hotel Management have been ranked among the top three hospitality schools in the world, according to a recent survey.
The survey further revealed that 56% of industry managers based in luxury hotels prefer graduates who have trained in more than a single country.
“The goal of top international hospitality management schools is to prepare managers to compete successfully in a rapidly changing world. This survey, like a similar one in 2010, confirms that the hospitality industry understands and appreciates the unique nature of our education model,” said Michael Huckaby, interim CEO Glion.
Good number of hiring managers from luxury international hospitality companies around the world were studied during the survey conducted recently by Taylor Nelson Sofres (TNS) Travel & Tourism (U.K).
“Our new Les Roches global bachelor’s degree and its internship component provide students with up to five destinations during their studies, which is unique for programs in hospitality management,” said Sonia Tatar, CEO Les Roches worldwide.
The survey was conducted in spring and summer 2013, and included invitations to more than 50,000 hoteliers in 80 countries.
