Aged 17, Matías has a thirst for freedom. Attracted by the great wide world, he will soon be tempted by an experience on a Vatel campus. And why not on the other side of the globe?
In the past 60 years, tourism has constantly expanded and diversified, becoming one of the world’s most important and dynamic business sectors. It is also a sector that is evolving and developing an increasing number of initiatives to support ecologically and socially responsible tourism.
These initiatives are in line with the recommendations of UNWTO, the United Nations agency dedicated to the tourism sector. The UNWTO is campaigning for the implementation of 17 ambitious objectives for the sustainable development of tourism, the ”Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) are a guarantee for the future.
In this highly specialized sector, there is still a lack of executives and operational managers. This is why Vatel prepares the younger generations to build a sustainable future in a demanding sector, one where they will be able to expand their skill sets and achieve their professional ambitions. All of Vatel’s educational methods are designed to reach this goal.
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.
Large hotel chains consider the French art of hospitality as a benchmark and an asset, wherever they are located. This is why they are constantly looking for managers who perfectly understand these values and who are able to convey them.
