GLION Institute of Higher Education


Established in 1962 as the Institut International de Glion, the school was founded by Swiss professors Walter Hunziker and Frédéric Tissot on the site of the former Grand Hôtel Bellevue, in Montreux, Switzerland, with the initial class consisting of 15 students from five different countries, studying courses delivered in French.

In 1977, Glion changed its name to the Centre International de Glion (CIG), before becoming Glion Hotel School. In 1989 a second campus was opened in Bulle. In 2002, Glion updated its name to Glion Institute of Higher Education and became part of Laureate Education, an American education company.[2]

In 2006, Glion was accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.).[3]

In 2013, Glion opened a new campus in London, located in the grounds of the University of Roehampton. In 2016, Glion was acquired by Eurazeo, a multinational private equity firm based in Paris, France. Glion operates under the umbrella of hospitality education group Sommet Education.
