What is Irene Urdangarin’s job?
Exclusive information from the Spanish portal Vanitatis reveals that the daughter of Infanta Cristina has accepted a job at a prestigious Swiss hotel.
Her goal? To meet the requirements to enter the renowned École Hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) University, where she will begin her studies in hotel management and business management next September.
To be admitted to the prestigious institution, Irene has to prove her experience through internships in the hospitality industry.
Apparently, Irene learned of this requirement just days before the application deadline, leaving her little time to secure a position in the hospitality industry.
She did, however, secure a two-week internship at a hotel in Geneva.
Irene Urdangarin will study at the École Hôtelière University.
Urdangarin’s chosen course of study is the Bachelor in International Hospitality Management, a three-year program with an additional preparatory course.
Her journey will begin on September 20, and students must be in school between the 12th and 16th of that month.
Her training at EHL will play a key role in shaping her career.
According to the university, Irene, like her classmates, will be immersed in a hands-on approach to learning, including practical experiences in hotels, restaurants, and various aspects of hospitality.
