Ever since Vatel Bordeaux’s creation, I have sought to uphold what I consider to be essential values in education – rigor, excellence, ambition, consideration for individuals and respect – with our students, teachers, and the professionals who work with us. Having welcomed French-speaking students from many countries to Vatel for several years, we decided to open our Hospitality and Wine & Spirits Management courses to English-speaking students three years ago. With an unshakeable belief in the importance of constant innovation and gauging our performance against the best-in-class in global Hospitality education, we participate in international competitions on a regular basis. We derive endless pleasure from welcoming future professionals to Bordeaux.

Connected fast food services.

”Vatel really opened up my mind and helped me mature professionally. I worked in a variety of restaurants (luxury, brasserie-type, semi-gourmet and fast food in a wide range of posts: as a waiter and head waiter, assistant restaurant manager, operational management auditor and strategic management auditor) in several countries (France, Ireland, Malta, Réunion, London, New Zealand, etc.). Combining theory and practice allows students to acquire strong human and social skills by meeting lots of professionals in the sector.”
