TESTIMONIAL

Taiyeb GODHRAWALA, MBA student in Wine & Spirits Management

“In 2.5 months, the preparatory class helped me gain knowledge of the Hospitality Industry and practical skills at the same time. We discover several departments and I came to understand the organisation of a hotel. There were only a few students in the preparatory course, which was a great advantage as each one of us got personal attention and follow-up from the Professors and Academic Staff. It was also helpful to see myself in this environment and to know in what direction I would like to go after the MBA.’’”

Le Minh Yen Nguyen, MBA Alumni 2020

“This program suits students like myself who don’t have a degree in the hospitality and tourism fields,
because we learn all the basics of this industry in a short amount of time. I gained skills in management, business administration, marketing, wine culture and much more. And what’s great at Vatel Bordeaux, is that we could apply this right away, during our practical application weeks.”
