  • 1981 : Vatel is founded in France

    In 1981, the first Vatel School opened in Paris. Convinced of the necessity of internationally targeted education in Hospitality and Tourism Management, Alain Sebban nonetheless decided to begin by consolidating the Group in France. For the first ten years, he established the Vatel model in France: Campuses opened in Lyon in 1984, in Nimes in 1989 and then in Bordeaux in 1994.
  • 2000 : expansion of the Vatel model

    Now all the factors supporting international development have come together: Vatel’s teaching concept, founded on the tried and tested mixture of theoretical courses and professional experience, is complete and sustainable; Vatel’s know-how, applied for the past 20 years can be transferred; last but not least, the hospitality industry confirms its international outreach and is booming. Alain Sebban thus decides to duplicate the Vatel School model throughout the world.
  • 2017 : Vatel has 41 Campuses on four continents
    Fifteen years later, Vatel Group has 41 campuses in the world. Spread over four continents, they make up a unified and global network of higher education specialized in international hotel management. Today Vatel Group is the 1st Worldwide Business School Group in Hospitality and Tourism Management.
