More than just a degree, professions

When they start working, most Vatel alumni who decide to begin their careers after their Bachelor Vatel, have middle management jobs in hotel chains: Assistant Reception Manager, Head-Waiter, Catering Control, Housekeeping Manager, Sales Assistant, Deputy Housekeeper, Cost-Control, etc.

For those who have a MBA Vatel, on average they have an open ended contract within six months, in a managerial position. Their jobs demand more skills and managerial aptitudes: Reception Manager, Deputy Catering Manager, Marketing Assistant, Deputy Human Resources Manager, Yield Manager, etc.

The true added value that Vateliens have, compared with graduates of another school, resides in the accumulation of professional experiences during schooling: as of their very first day at school until they graduate, our students apply their knowledge, both at school and during their internships.

 

 

Going abroad helps you succeed later

Many graduates of Vatel schools decide to begin their careers abroad, where it is much easier to climb the corporate ladder. Gross annual salaries are much higher than in Europe, in particular because of the many perks: free housing, food, certain living expenses paid for, insurance, etc.

In addition, they can use the priceless network of 29,000 Vateliens throughout the world and students are often recommended by Vateliens they met during their internships or even directly hired by them.
