Tourism accounts for one job out of eleven throughout the world

  • During the past 60 years, tourism has been expanding and continually diversifying until it has become one of the most important and most dynamic economic sectors in the world.
  • According to the publication of the WTO* “Tourism Highlights 2015 Edition”, which gives long-term outlooks, the number of international tourists throughout the world will increase by 3.3% per year between 2010 and 2030 to reach 1.8 billion in 2030.
  • The number of international tourists arriving, meaning they are spending at least a night in a foreign country, crossed the one billion mark for the first time in 2012.

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok, Thailand

My Vatel professors set the route for my success. It’s just like if I had chosen to take the path leading to hotel management and they had transformed this little path into a huge avenue with many different roads intersecting with it - meaning the hotel departments where I did my practical application weeks - so that I would never lose my way in any hotel structure whatsoever.”

“In each of these internships, Vatel was not only known, but considered as a benchmark. That’s why I was able to be quickly considered as the team leader and why all the Vatel alumni who worked in the same hotel or in the same city helped me out. I quickly became aware that Vatel was not only a network of different schools, but first and foremost, a network of men and women present all over the world.”

An active network of professional partners

All the major economic players in the hotel and tourism industry meet with our students at conferences, forums and symposiums. They offer internships to our students and recruit our graduates. This ongoing relationship means that, from their first year, our students are in direct contact with the professional world, and Vatel’s training programmes are constantly evolving with the hotel industry.

Hotel groups are omnipresent in the Vatel curriculum. Besides active participation, through hosting and training interns, they inform students about conditions in the job market, in particular by speaking at conferences organized each year.In addition, our Vatel Group executives participate in seminars and key events in the hotel and tourist industry: the Global Lodging Forum, Worldwide Hospitality Award, etc.

“Our hotel usually hosts about thirty interns each year. Our staff members appreciate this, though they have a lot of efforts to make with the young students who often come a long way. They have to learn how to work together, respect each other and the other person’s culture. We teach them to love their work and the hotel guests. This learning path includes a meticulous attention to details, which requires a true ability of adaptation when you’re still a student. But it’s enriching for them and for us too! It’s indispensable to train the future generations.”

“I decided upon Vatel, because of its reputation and image, for our first partnership. I visited the Vatel Paris Campus and was immediately impressed by the equipment, the resources and above all, the culture that was taught to the students. [...] In addition, I had very high quality communication with staff members at Vatel. They were all very cooperative and promoted exchanges, from the selection process up to handling student visas. This professional approach really validated our partnership with Vatel.”
