INITIATION TO MANAGEMENT ALWAYS INCLUDES THEORY AND PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
The Vatel curriculum builds momentum for students in management :
Bachelor year 1: Students are introduced to marketing, human resources, administration and professional culture, and become seasoned to catering, culinary production techniques, banquet constraints, unexpected events in receptions or seminars, while remaining at school. They conclude their School year by an internship in the country where they are studying.
Bachelor year 2: While continuing to enhance theoretical knowledge with the introduction of courses such as Business Law and Tourism Economics, students are introduced to management. During their practical training, they manage the 1st year students, while being managed themselves by 3rd year students. They gain self confidence while becoming aware of the hierarchy in a business.
Marco Polo Program: Students have the possibility of doing their school year (Bachelor year 2) in another Vatel School, after the dean of their host School has gone though and validated their application.

Bachelor year 3: Students, who have by now acquired legal, economic and linguistic capacities, are ready to manage teams at school. In this year, they develop their analytical capabilities, call upon the knowledge accumulated so far, devise strategies and take decisions.
