Appointed hotel director before graduating! - Vatel

Appointed hotel director before graduating!

While recently completing her International hotel Management MBA at Vatel Bordeaux, Caroline Périn is appointed Director of Pure House Hotel Ibiza at only 22! Let’s take a look at her interesting background.

Caroline’s path is one great success story! The young student managed to sign a short-term contract as a hotel director before even graduating, while being an MBA student at Vatel Bordeaux. She reached this position by simply reaping the benefits of her adaptability and the outcome of her training at Vatel. 

Executive assistant: an operational approach to all departments 

Caroline followed an IT course in business and administrative management then registered for the pre-university preparatory course at Vatel Bordeaux. A year after the preparatory course, she got a placement opportunity at the Boutique Hotel Pure House Ibiza. As a personal assistant, she handled various tasks: business Relations, housekeeping, reception, sommellerie, kitchen… Her role as personal assistant allowed her to gain a broad knowledge and acquire operational skills in different departments, which is a good foundation for progressing to a manager position.

Following her placement, she completed her preparatory course and started an MBA in International Hotel Management

During her second year as an MBA student, the same hotel offered her a short-term contract as a Hotel Director. She, of course, said yes. 

Hotel Director: a variety of strategic missions

Setting up a new restaurant: business plan, calculation of the profitability threshold, preparation of menus and collaboration with the chefs of the island
Restructuring of the standardized operational procedures and of the internal and external communication materials
Organization of four weddings this summer and the setting up of the concierge service.
Appointments with prestigious partners

The new Director will definitely be working around the clock but she is thrilled to take on her new responsibilities despite her heavy schedule!

Caroline’s experience tells us that reaching managerial positions is possible when we display hard work, dedication and rigor. The young student managed to impress her colleagues and supervisors during her placement and proved she was reliable and up to the task. We warmly congratulate her!
