WATCH: Glion’s winter 2016 graduation
On December 9, Glion celebrated a new class of graduates at the Montreux Music & Convention Centre with a ceremony gathering 284 students donning traditional robes and hats to mark the end of their Glion journey.
The ceremony was presided by Mr Guy Bentley, then-CEO of Glion Worldwide, and featured inspiring speeches by InterContinental Geneva GM Mr Jurgen Baumhoff and SGA President Mr Alexander Ten Hoedt, before Glion’s interim CEO, Mr Philippe Kopcsan, put an end to the ceremony by asking all students to throw their hats in the air.
You can watch the ceremony in full here:
The graduation ceremony was the first to include a cohort from the Glion London campus, where students started studying since the opening in 2013.
We had the chance to sit down with a couple of them, Daniela Neiderer and Claudia Dalla Torre di Sanguinetto, to ask them specifically what their time at Glion consisted in, what activities they took part in, what challenges lay ahead and how their learning and connections will help them progress in their career. It was also a chance to find out first-hand what key elements make studying – and living – in one of the world’s biggest capitals, even more special and rewarding.

Finally, our London students gathered for another prize ceremony conducted by the Glion London staff where the equally important awards for best business appearance, Glion Spirit and commitment to excellence were handed out. We recorded it live on our Facebook page:
Here’s to the first cohort of Glion London graduates! Good luck in your future careers!
