Vatel, founded in 1981, trains future executives in the international Hospitality and Tourism Industry in its 23 Schools spanning four continents on the globe. Its internationally focused teaching methods are based on just the right balance between theoretical university courses and practical professional experiences.
Vatel won the International Hospitality Award for the best training program and is internationally recognized as the 1st European School in its category.
Vatel, thanks to its unique world-wide School network, is able to offer its students the possibility of spending an entire school-year abroad in another Vatel School, and thus discovering a different culture, a new way of working, as well as the once in a lifetime possibility of mastering a foreign language. Vatel students, when they finish their Bachelor’s Degree, have the possibility of spending an extra year in Vatel Los Angeles for an American MBA, focusing on American management techniques, a solution for many international hotel chains.
All Vatel programs lead to the acquisition of the same skills and know-how in whatever School you decide to enroll in, and all are awarded with a double diploma: the Vatel degree and the certified national degree in the country where the School is located. Teaching is carried out in five languages, and some campuses host 50 nationalities at the same time. Internships, which are mandatory in the curriculum, can be done in any country in the world. Currently Vatel’s 9,000 alumni hold senior management positions in the most luxurious hotels on the planet.
They make up a global network that offers internships for students in all Schools, and also recruits newly graduated students.
Last but not least, Vatel is justly proud of its university and professional partnership network; its internationally known teaching staff and specialized Tourism and Hospitality Research Center guarantee and underpin the Group’s solid reputation.
Vatel is proud to propose the possibility of sharing its values and success via academic partnership agreements, shared development, recruitment, and international promotion to other schools and public or private universities.
