Each program is reinforced with extracurricular activities that expand and enrich professional knowledge, improve the managerial skills, strategic capacity and entrepreneurial spirit of our students.
“When they host interns, professionals contribute to training young people. When our students begin working in a hotel, they do everything possible to play an active role in the hotel’s activities and contribute to customer satisfaction. Last but not least, our schools, when they place students whose profiles have a 100% match with what professionals are looking for, have a dual commitment: on one hand, they train students and on the other, they introduce emerging talents to professionals. Each of these three parts thus plays a role in shaping the profile of tomorrow’s profession.”

“In South-Eastern Asia, Accor has been working now for fifteen years with Vatel schools from the entire world, identifying highly talented young people and hosting them for entry-level internships up until their final internship. Vatel has a great international reputation, a huge network of alumni throughout the world and vast experience in matching students to the right internship in various hotel departments. Its curriculum prepares students to become a part of this activity, highlighting basic skills and learning several foreign languages, dressing elegantly, having a proper conduct and striving for customer satisfaction with the highest possible level of services.”

"The Vatel students came here for a hands-on experience. They bring in a “plus” for Fairmont’s culture. I had very high quality communication with staff members from the school. 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.”
