The Glion Institute of Higher Education and Les Roches Global Hospitality Education have signed an articulation agreement with Athens-based BCA College, opening new opportunities for hospitality students in Greece.

The announcement was made during a festive event, which was recently held at the BCA College new City Campus in Ambelokipi, Athens.

According to the agreement, after the completion of three years of study at BCA College in Greece, hospitality students will have the possibility to complete their final year of study at Les Roches’ or Glion’s campuses in Switzerland, Spain or London, and obtain a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) at preferred tuition fees.

Another option for BCA students is to study a semester abroad at Les Roches in Switzerland or Spain to gain international exposure and conduct an internship worldwide. Participating students will receive certification upon termination of the BBA or Study Abroad programs.

To further foster the connection of BCA College with the hotel industry, three Glion and Les Roches modules for executives’ education will be offered at BCA’s premises including subjects such as “Ownership Transition”, “Human Resources Management” and “F&B Management”.  These courses will be geared specifically for industry professionals from Greece and Cyprus.

They are operating under the umbrella of Sommet Education, a network of prestigious hospitality schools in Switzerland, Spain, China, Jordan, the United Kingdom and the U.S.
