The course includes videos, readings, discussions, peer-reviewed assignments, quizzes, and a final exam.

The Online courses are :

• Maximising Spa Profitability and Excellence in Spa Operations are taught by Glion faculty member Mariana Palmeiro and leading spa and wellness expert Dr Mary Tabacchi on the financial and organisational aspects of spa management, a particular growth area in the hospitality industry.
