Why make a career in
international tourism and hospitality industry ?

For the past 20 years, tourism has been thriving. In spite of economic, political and social crises, it remains a sound long-term investment.             

The World Tourism Organization's long term forecast predicts the following trends:

  • The number of international tourists throughout the world will rise by 3.3% per year between 2010 and 2030 to reach 1.8 billion in 2030;
  • Between 2010 and 2030, the number of arrivals to emerging destinations will increase twice as fast (+4.4% per year) as those in mature economies (+ 2.2% per year);
  • Market share held by emerging economies grew from 30 to 47% between 1980 and 2012, and is expected to reach 57% by 2030, thus equaling over a billion international tourists who will be coming.

Consequently, international hotel groups must continue to expand in the entire world.

To support their growth, they need operation managers and senior executives who are able to work in multicultural contexts and lead teams composed of employees of many different nationalities. They are looking for young and responsible graduates, who have not only acquired knowledge from a famous business school, but also the know-how and people-oriented skills that are so important in the hospitality industry.

On a global scale, hotel groups have two very different ways of management:

 European management.  It is based on two centuries of history in the hospitality field. It is focused on  service quality and guest satisfaction. It takes into account all the cultural aspects of the guest, the country in which the hotel is located as well as the personnel it employs.
 Anglo-Saxon management.  Much more recent, it is based on achieving financial results and highlights procedures that employees must follow.
Vatel has chosen to teach the European management method thus transmitting the French art of hospitality, recognized throughout the world as a guarantee of quality, good taste and excellence.

 

More than just a degree

When they start working, most Vatel alumni who decide to begin their careers after their Bachelor's Degree in International Hotel Management, have middle management jobs in hotel chains: Assistant Reception Manager, Head-Waiter, Catering Control, Housekeeping Manager, Sales Assistant, Deputy Housekeeper, Cost-Control, etc.

For those who have a Postgraduate Degree in International Hotel Management, on average they have an open ended contract within six months, in a managerial position. Their jobs demand more skills and managerial aptitudes: Reception Manager, Deputy Catering Manager, Marketing Assistant, Deputy Human Resources Manager, Yield Manager, etc.

The true added value that Vateliens have, compared with graduates of another school, resides in the accumulation of professional experiences during schooling: as of their very first day at school until they graduate, our students apply their knowledge, both at school and during their internships.
 

Going abroad helps you succeed later

Many graduates of Vatel schools decide to begin their careers abroad, where it is much easier to climb the corporate ladder. Gross annual salaries are much higher than in Europe, in particular because of the many perks: free housing, food, certain living expenses paid for, insurance, etc.

In addition, they can use the priceless network of 27,000 Vateliens throughout the world and students are often recommended by Vateliens they met during their internships or even directly hired by them.
