The benefits of doing a double degree
by Glion Institute of Higher Education
Glion has recently introduced the dual MBA and MSc in International Hospitality Business, a programme that enables you to gain two degrees after only one year on campus and one year working in industry.
The degree is offered in partnership with Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM), an equally renowned French business school. But what are the benefits of doing a double degree? And how well-received are the Master’s programmes from both these schools? Our blog has all the answers.
Leading MBA programmes
Our dual MBA and MSc is taught by leading experts from not just our school, but also from GEM. The latter’s MBA leadership team have received high praise from a range of publications – it is ranked as one of the top 25 courses in Europe (The Financial Times) and among the top five in France by The Economist.
“Prior to the MBA, I worked in the Indian pharmaceutical industry,” said Smriddhi Dhingra, who graduated with a GEM MBA in Innovation Management in 2014. “From this, I realised how difficult it was to get even the most basic primary healthcare and medication in developing countries. This inspired me to study a GEM MBA.”
Smriddhi chose to study in France due it to being “at the forefront of building policies and structures for global healthcare.” While studying, she was taught by international faculty and thrived in a multicultural environment. “The class was full of experienced, mature individuals from different backgrounds, adding value by discussing the cultural nuances that play an important role in global business today,” she said.
“The structure of the GEM MBA allows you to integrate business theory with practical right from the outset,” said Bruno Mesnard, Vice-President of MGE UPS. “The end result saw MGE UPS gain a manager deeply enriched by his MBA experience, who now has even greater potential for success within the company.”

World-renowned Master’s degrees
Our Master’s programmes provide you with the in-depth knowledge, industry insight and first-hand experience needed to advance your management career. It is no surprise that such strong relationships with organisations has seen Glion ranked number one worldwide for employer reputation (QS World Rankings 2018).
“While studying my Master’s, I have worked on projects that have helped me grow professionally and personally,” said Sandy Koukouli. “Glion then used its amazing network of contacts to get me an internship.”
Henri De Saussure was drawn to Glion for its reputation and international opportunities. However, he found himself falling in love with more than just his programme. “I have really enjoyed the social experience,” he said. “You get to meet so many people from different backgrounds, cultures and mindsets. This is something we can all learn from, so just be open and be yourself.”
Donal Hegarty also thrived after studying a Master’s degree. Since graduating, he has secured a position at the Four Seasons George V hotel in Paris, the world’s first hotel to accumulate five Michelin stars. “It’s a fantastic way to start my F & B career,” he said. Donal works in the hotel’s restaurant, Le George.
