Currently one of the world’s top three educators of international careers in hospitality management, the objective of Glion’s London campus is to extend its already far reaching global network. It is a member of Laureate International Universities, a group of more than 60 accredited campus-based and online institutions of higher education serving more than 740,000 students in 29 countries.
Due to be located within the University of Roehampton in southwest London, the campus will initially offer a Bachelor of Business Administration in Hospitality Management and a Postgraduate Diploma in Hospitality Administration beginning in August 2013.
Douglas L Becker, chairman and chief executive officer of Laureate Education Inc said that London is an important gateway for our hospitality management students.
“[London] is one of the world’s leading centres for business, finance and hospitality, and it is a desired English-language destination for students who want to earn their degree from Glion and we are leading the way in providing students with a unique global education experience.”
The University of Roehampton already has an existing partnership agreement with Laureate Education for the delivery of its online programs, which was a prominent part of the partnership.
Mr Becker added: “We are delighted that this new Glion campus has been made possible through our partnership with the University of Roehampton. It highlights the benefits of the collaboration that takes place among institutions that are associated with the Laureate International Universities network.”
More than 90 per cent of Glion graduates are employed in the industry within six months of earning their degree. With almost 10,000 graduates working in more than 100 countries, Glion’s alumni form a strong executive search and placement service, facilitating the integration of new graduates into the professional world and matching job offers with employment demands.
