UEFA partners with Glion
Last week Glion welcomed Thomas Junod, Education and Universities Manager, and Damaris Papoutsakis VIP Services Manager of UEFA onto the Bulle campus to discuss collaboration on academic projects in a gradual run up to EURO 2016. The projects will be carried out by post-graduate ESE students with the focus initially being on exploring the E-guest experience and VIP cultural programs at tournament locations.
Michelle Wells, ESE Program Manager said “Having the opportunity for students to work with companies as prestigious as UEFA is a great endorsement for the Events, Sports and Entertainment program (ESE, GIHE).The impact these projects have on students learning is enormous. Students have a chance to see their projects come to fruition with all the authentic challenges of the real business world.”
As a result of the relationship with UEFA, GIHE students have been invited to the semi-final and final of the UEFA Youth League involving the youth teams (Under 19) of the most prestigious European clubs which will take place on UEFA Campus (Colovray stadium in Nyon) on 11th and 14th April.
