Glion Institute of Higher Education has launched Wellness to Business, a range of executive education programmes, which recognises the growing influence of wellness and sustainability within the hospitality industry.
Launched on April 19, 2018, Wellness to Business Executive Education offers online learning, on-campus courses, customised workshops and consultancy services for hotel general managers, spa directors and others in the wellness and hospitality industry, a statement revealed.
Wellness to Business is led by Mariana Palmeiro, a spa and wellness expert and faculty member at Glion with more than a decade of experience in luxury spa and hotel operations.
"Through Wellness to Business, Glion will offer face-to-face, digital and tailored company programmes on current topics in spa and wellness innovation. The health and wellness market offers great potential, and we are pleased to introduce this new educational offering at the executive level. In addition to online courses, we will offer an immersive learning experience in spa and wellness business management this September in Bali, Indonesia, and a three-day course at Glion this October on innovation, technology and wellness,” said Palmeiro.
Glion has also partnered with the Swiss international private clinic Clinique La Prairie to develop business case studies and better standards in the industry through joint activities while enabling students to gain further insights into medical spa practices.
Clinique La Prairie CEO Simone Giberton added: “Clinique La Prairie is proud to be part of the launch of the new Wellness to Business programme offered by Glion Institute of Higher Education. Today, well-being and health are on everyone's concerns. This new study module will allow students to have profound understanding on this specific and exciting industry. Clinique La Prairie will support actively the programme and fully encourage this project."
