I. FAQs for Alumni and other users
1. What is the Glion alumni network?
The Glion alumni network consists of a community of 14,000+ alumni. Its goal is to nurture the Glion Spirit and support all Glion alumni worldwide during their professional and personal lives. Glion alumni are represented in 60+ countries worldwide by local communities or “Chapters”. Each Chapter has one or more Chapter Ambassadors who are responsible to animate and support the local Glion community. The Chapters are supervised by the AAG Committee, which is elected by the alumni every three years.
While offering exclusive advantages to its members, the Glion alumni network is dedicated to keep excellent connections with the Industry. It collaborates with hundreds of business leaders, recruiters, head-hunters and industry experts. Therefore, not only alumni can have an account on the alumni platform; any company interested in hiring Glion alumni can create an account here.
