Higher education group Sommet Education and luxury travel network Traveller Made announced they will work together to develop talent for the luxury travel industry. With the new partnership, Traveller Made will help create new course content for Sommet Education, who in turn will become an active recruiting partner of Traveller Made, encouraging students and graduates to apply for internships and job opportunities with the luxury agency.

Traveller Made will participate in developing and delivering the curriculum at Sommet Education. It will provide students with original research, case studies and applied business projects for them to complete as part of their degree program. Members of Traveller Made’s leadership team will visit campuses to share their knowledge with students through master classes and other guest speaking engagements. Students will also be able to take educational field trips to Traveller Made’s facilities in Paris.

Sommet Education offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs at its two hospitality management institutions: Glion Institute of Higher Education, based in Glion, Switzerland; and Les Roches Global Hospitality Education, based in Bluche, Switzerland. With students coming from over 100 countries, Sommet Education provides an education built around skills-based learning and multicultural exposure.
