Vatel has more than 50 hospitality management schools located in Europe, in the Americas, in Asia and in Africa. They share the same mission: preparing the younger generations to build their professional futures in the international hospitality and tourism management industries.
Vatel has decided to:
- Teach management techniques based on two centuries of history in the hospitality industry, based on high-quality services and customer satisfaction. This includes all cultural aspects of clients, from the country where the hotel is located to the personnel working in it.
- Convey the French art of hospitality, recognized all throughout the world as a sign of quality, good taste, and excellence.
- Teach French in all non-French speaking countries where our Group operates.
We now have 42,000 alumni who are working throughout the world and who are proud to call themselves Vateliens and to work in the most beautiful hotels on earth.

At the beginning of the 21st century, 20 years after the first Vatel school opened in France, all international development factors were ready to go: our educational concept, based on the progressive and controlled mixture of theory and professional experience, has been proved; it is sustainable and ready to be rolled out abroad. Since that time, new campuses have opened in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Africa.
Located on four continents, the network of Vatel schools makes up the 1st Worldwide Business School Group in Hospitality and Tourism Management, elected by professionals as the Best Hospitality Management School.

The Vatel dress code induces conduct that is strict, sober and elegant, as required by all jobs in the hospitality industry and restaurant services. Students feel that they belong to our school and embrace the values that they will need down the road in their professional lives. A token of our recognition shared by all Vatel students in the world, it embodies the values learned at Vatel which will accompany them for their entire professional lives.
Success must be shared. This strong idea is the base for Vatel Group’s development. A win-win situation for Vatel Group as it expands throughout the entire world as well as for its partners, who, as soon as the contract has been signed, can count on extensive tried and tested experience, while remaining independent. In return, both parties must contribute to the success of each new campus.
