They are attracted by the variety of the landscape, France’s rich and ancient culture, its cosmopolitan population, innovative industry, hospitality tradition, gastronomy, vineyards… and of course the French capital, Paris.


French, an international language

Speaking French is very important for a career in international hospitality. Along with English, it is the only language spoken on all 5 continents. After English, French is the most widely studied language in the world.

It is the world’s third most common business language and second most common language of international news (OIF, 2014).

The French art of hospitality, a benchmark for the rest of the world

Hospitality stems from the History of France. In the Middle Ages, young gentlemen traveling the world, diplomatic emissaries and princes stayed in the most beautiful residence in town and the most important people fought for the honor of being able to host them.

Human values were the ones that gave it this reputation for excellence.The French art of hospitality is mainly founded upon guest satisfaction. Hosts must thus possess specific qualities that Vatel strives to develop for its students during their schooling: respect, discretion, an open mind towards other cultures, a desire to please others and create an emotion, knowing how to be a good listener, how to warmly welcome others, having a sound general culture, etc.

French schooling is an asset throughout the world

Large hotel chains consider the French art of hospitality as a benchmark and an asset wherever they are located. This is the reason why they are constantly looking for managers who perfectly understand these values and who are able to transmit them on a daily basis to their colleagues, whatever their home country or culture may be.
