One of the most exciting developments I heard about while attending the Global Spa Summit was the launch of a spectacular new scholarship. Lausanne Hospitality Consulting, the Executive Education and Consulting subsidiary of Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, recently debuted a new professional certification in spa management. The one-year program is designed for those who are looking to develop their management skills or simply better apply them to their spa. Now, you have a chance to take advantage of this powerful program thanks to the LHC Global Spa Summit Scholarship. This scholarship gifts one place on the Professional Certification in Spa Management Programme for the June 2010 or February 2011 rollout, and is valued at more than $18,000.
The Professional Certification in Spa Management consists of four one-week sessions in Lausanne, Switzerland, at the campus of Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne. The program is specifically designed for professionals currently working in the spa industry who would like to boost their career to management levels. The program covers four spa-specific areas—Finance, Human Resources, Marketing, and Facilities Management—and includes spa visits and coaching. What makes this program so unique is the added value it provides to the spa operation: Participants are required to develop a Spa Case Project that aims to develop profitable solutions for your spa operation.
Who is eligible? Any motivated individual who is passionate about the spa industry; who has high professional growth potential; who has five years professional experience or a university degree; and who speaks English. For more information, visit www.lhcconsulting.com.
