Sommet Education and Traveller Made launch partnership to develop talent for the luxury travel industry
Clarens (Switzerland), 27 November 2018 —
Sharing a common commitment to promoting hospitality excellence and the creation of memorable guest experiences, higher education group Sommet Education encompassing hospitality management institutions Glion Institute of Higher Education and Les Roches Global Hospitality Education and luxury travel network Traveller Made have launched a partnership to develop talent for the luxury travel industry.
Through this partnership, students across Sommet Education’s portfolio of bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes will benefit from original course content and learning experiences developed in collaboration with Traveller Made. In addition, Traveller Made will become an active recruiting partner of Sommet Education, regularly inviting students and graduates to apply for internships and job opportunities with the company.
Traveller Made will participate in the development and delivery of the curriculum at Sommet Education by providing original research, case studies and applied business projects for students to carry out as part of their degree programme. Members of the Traveller Made leadership team will visit Sommet Education campuses to share their expertise with students through master classes and other guest speaking engagements. Students will also be able to complement these learning experiences through educational field trips to the Traveller Made facilities in Paris.
We are delighted to partner with Traveller Made, a network that shares our own outlook on the value of providing service excellence and memorable guest experiences,” said Benoît-Etienne Domenget, CEO of Sommet Education. “This collaboration will ensure that Sommet Education offers students the most relevant curriculum while developing the skills the luxury hospitality industry needs.”
The luxury travel industry is fast growing. The Member Travel Agencies of Traveller Made grew by +18.1% in 2017 (source: Yearly Barometer). The need to recruit and train talents is bigger than ever. At stake is our ability to keep delivering outstanding service to the ultra-wealthy travellers. We are very happy to partner with Sommet Education and to contribute to foster employability among young talents within the Traveller Made luxury travel community,” reported Quentin Desurmont, President of Traveller Made.
Sommet Education and Traveller Made both share origins in Switzerland, with the flagship campuses of Glion and Les Roches located in Glion (Montreux) and Bluche (Crans-Montana), respectively, and the headquarters of Traveller Made located in Sion.
