A flexible and open curriculum

The Vatel curriculum is a 5 year program. However students who want to join the workforce after only three years with a French State Degree certifying that they have received specific profession-based knowledge and already have had professional experience are able to do so. Some of the jobs these 1st cycle students have are in Quality Control, Hotel Administration, etc.

At the end of the 2nd cycle, Vatel students find themselves working in jobs, after a 1 to 2 year trial period, such as Human Resources Manager, Chief Financial Officer, Marketing Manager, etc. The Vatel Curriculum is open to those holding an undergraduate degree in any major. The Foundation Year allows all students to obtain practical experience as well as operational management experience in the hospitality and international tour
