The future doesn’t wait. Neither should you.
In challenging times, knowledge is power. Glion Institute of Higher Education and Les Roches know that by opening this brochure you’re ready to supercharge your knowledge and professional skills by studying their world-renowned Bachelor’s in International Hospitality Business and in Global Hospitality Management. But they also know that travel restrictions could make it difficult for you to get to their campuses when the first semester of the Bachelor program begins in October 2020.
When our world is changing this quickly, you still can get your higher education underway without delay. So, they have developed a unique solution, which will deliver the complete semester 1 Practical Arts curriculum through a blend of learning at home and on your chosen campus.
They are called Glion Connect and Les Roches Connect – let’s see together how it works.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO WAIT TO BEGIN YOUR BACHELOR STUDIES
At Glion and Les Roches, they believe that the best way to learn is by doing. This is why their Bachelor’s in International Hospitality Business and in Global Hospitality Management start with a semester focused on hospitality’s Practical Arts. It gives you the opportunity to develop practical and transferable skills within a ‘real life’ hospitality environment.
Your first, Practical Arts semester lays the foundations for your Bachelor studies with Glion and Les Roches. By the end of these 20 weeks, you will have developed an understanding of the excellence required in hotel and restaurant operations; becoming equipped with practical, professional skills you can deploy in your first internship.
Glion Connect and Les Roches Connect options take the complete semester 1 curriculum and split it into two teaching blocks of 10 weeks each – the first taught remotely; the second taught face-to- face on campus. While the teaching methods will be different, the learning outcomes are the same as you’d experience with a full semester on campus.
Before your remote studies begin, they’ll send you a special ‘welcome kit’, so you are ready to hit the ground running.
HOW THE BLENDED LEARNING EXPERIENCE WORKS
The Glion Connect and Les Roches Connect programs are a state-of-the-art approach to ‘virtual’ studies; one that makes use of technology to ensure each student feels part of both the Bachelor program and student life.
It means a mix of live online tutorials and demonstrations, videos, one- to-one coaching and mentoring, plus interactive games and challenges. School’s own ‘TV studio’ will allow them to broadcast live culinary demonstrations during every teaching day of the Art of Gastronomy module.
Through the Student Affairs team, the programs will also enable everyone studying remotely to connect with each other, as well as with their fellow students on campus. This includes the opportunity to join student popular clubs and committees, as well as to apply for the Student Ambassador program.
FOUR REMOTE LEARNING MODULES, TEN WEEKS
The four remote learning modules are designed to cover the fundamentals of hospitality in ten weeks – laying the foundations for your future leadership career. Much of the course structure and content is shared between the different campuses, with just a few regional variations.
- Induction and Professional Communication
- The Wine and Bar Universe
- Rooms Division and Hotel Operations
- The Art of Gastronomy
With special mention to Wine & Bar Universe module, the schools have gathered some world-renowned experts in wine, spirits and mixology. You will experience a wine masterclass with Paolo Basso, former World’s Best Sommelier; you’ll also discover the world of spirits and learn how to mix delicious cocktails and mocktails.
Invite your friends to join the cocktail/mocktail making contest lead by me in partnership with Sommet Education through the social accounts of Enozioni – Instagram and Facebook – from which we will launch a new challenge every Monday: the winner’s prize for the best cocktail/mocktail is the online access to an exclusive cocktail masterclass lead by expert and award-winning mixologists in October 2020.
You can discover more about each of these modules and details across the following pages:

Having completed your home-based learning curriculum, you will then be welcomed on campus at the beginning of the New Year, ready to continue your Practical Arts studies face-to-face. You’ll further develop your practical skills and knowledge in ‘real world’ food & beverage destinations, from food court to bistro to fine dining.
