Vatel Hotels and Restaurants: students, professionals and real customers

A complete and real experience

An important point in Vatel’s educational methods, our campuses are equipped with an application restaurant and/or hotel. These full-scale application structures have the same challenges as an independent or integrated structure to attract customers. In practical application structures, with real customers, students progressively learn how to manage human resources, make decisions and be accountable for them.

Vatel has also launched innovative practical application structures, for its professors and students: 

> 4 star hotels in Nimes and Bordeaux

> Vatel Gourmet boutiques, in Nimes, Lyon Carnot and Lyon Grand Hôtel-Dieu

> Vatel Cafes in Lyon and Nantes




50%

OF LEARNING TIME IS DEVOTED TO HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE

“The best way to understand anything is to experience it yourself.” This is the principle upon which Vatel bases its educational approach. This translates to applying what you learn in a real context. Located in city centres, our schools also house restaurants, hotels, spas, cafes and / or Vatel gourmet catering shops, all which receive real customers.


“For me this job is a true passion and I appreciate the fact that I can share and explain to the younger generations both the complexities and the different opportunities that our line of work has. I’m always happy to go to work each day. Here we’ve got a great team and we teach this frame of mind to our students, who are enthusiastic.”

Isabelle FERCHAUD 
Vatel Restaurant Manager & Senior F&B Instructor
Bangkok, Thailand


“Our hotel is the only one in our area that has a spa and proposes three types of restaurants: a brasserie, a gourmet restaurant and catering. We have experienced personnel, great teams and everyone loves the educational dimension inherent in this project.”

Anne-Maud AGUILAR
General Manager Vatel Hotel & Spa
Nimes, France



TO BE MORE CREATIVE AND ENTERPRISING

Gaining knowledge is always a good thing, but understanding how to develop that knowledge into projects is even better. That is why Vatel implements innovative learning methods that are fun and effective, based on real-life situations and group work. Our belief? We learn best on the job.

VATEL CASE STUDIES TO FIND REAL-LIFE SOLUTIONS

A week of working as a team on a specific task and set by a professional in the tourism industry. Does that seem too long? You will soon realise that it isn’t. You will resolve the issues set by companies by presenting your (well-structured) solutions!
And who knows? Your solutions might just be put into practice for real!

VATEL INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS GAME, A VIRTUAL SIMULATION GAME TO LEARN DECISION MAKING

In the 2nd year of the MBA and during a very intense week, you will become the manager of an international holding company. With your team, you make business, financial, technical and human resource decisions that will affect the future of your businesses.
This virtual simulation game for management and decision-making pits your team against 5th-year students from all of Vatel’s schools around the world. So, are you ready to take on the world?

TEACHERS, NOT JUST LECTURERS

These games use academic and practical interactive methods to enable you to develop your analytical skills, creativity and initiative.
Based on exchange, sharing and reflection, this educational approach is more like a coaching technique than classical teaching.

AND WHAT ABOUT NEW TECHNOLOGIES?

Artificial intelligence, data, revenue management ... new technologies are an integral part of the hospitality and tourism industry, that is why it is so important to master them. 

Understanding how to use them will make you a creative professional with a great deal to offer. That’s pretty useful right?

Internships, building professional experience

Vatel, proactive internship offers for its students

In Vatel, the relationship with the profession is considered as being one of the cornerstones for its future graduates. 

Since 1981, each Vatel Campus has carefully chosen internships for its students depending on what year of schooling they are in, with the goal of allowing them to apply the know-how and people-oriented skills they learned in the previous year. 

These internships are mandatory and comply with academic rules. In the 1st year, internships take place in the country where students attend Vatel classes and in their 2nd year, they are international. After their undergraduate studies, alumni will have spent a minimum of 10 months in an operational internship. Should students continue with graduate studies, they will have an additional six months of experience in executive positions.

The Bachelor year 1 internship, which takes place during the peak summer or winter tourist season, is demanding for students who discover their professional environment at this busy time. They learn basic tasks at the front desk and in the restaurant.The aim is that, as future managers, after having climbed the hierarchical ladder, they will be able to manage teams more efficiently, as they, themselves, have also done these tasks.

The Bachelor year 2 internship still has an operational dimension, but takes place, if possible, in an English speaking country so that students will develop their linguistic and cross-cultural qualities.

Internships during the MBA are designed so that students discover and gain experience in managerial positions.
