Eighteen Kendall College students earned the esteemed Glion Advanced Certificate in International Hospitality Management following a rigorous exam held on November 30, 2012. The certificate provides them with a competitive career advantage in an increasingly global marketplace. Kendall College is an official affiliate Institution of The Glion Institute of Higher Education. Glion, based in Switzerland, is ranked among the best hospitality schools in the world for an international career.
“The Glion Certificate in Hospitality Management is offered to distinguish students from competitors in this demanding career marketplace and gives them the opportunity to advance their knowledge of the hospitality field,” said Dr. Susan Tinnish, dean of the School of Hospitality Management. “As an official affiliate of The Glion Institute of Higher Education, we are excited to see these students expand their skills with assistance from this celebrated institution.”
Since its inception, the exam for The Glion Advanced Certificate in Hospitality Management has been offered three times at Kendall College; once each year to qualifying students. To be eligible to take the exam, students must complete nine pre-requisite classes and attend a mandatory review session, which revisits material from four classes in the Kendall College School of Hospitality Bachelor of Arts program, including Organizational Behavior, Human Resources Management, Leadership, and Services Marketing, and gives students a chance to take a practice exam similar to the actual version.
The Glion Advanced Certificate in International Hospitality Management is only awarded to students upon graduation from the Kendall Hospitality Management B.A. program and cannot be obtained independently from the degree.
Recent alumnus Ben Berger ’12 shared that “Having the opportunity to supplement my degree and resume with the Glion Advanced Certificate in International Hospitality Management greatly helped identify my management knowledge and was key to gaining acceptance to a top-rated graduate school following graduation from Kendall.”
