The wedding between the hospitality industry and finance
Switzerland has hospitality traditions and its identity is strongly linked to the field of finance. Vatel Switzerland, which opened in 2010, has quite naturally used its own roots to develop its new specialization. Students will now have the possibility, during their last MBA year, to do their specialization in International Hospitality Financial Management.
Courses, given in English, will include corporate strategy and innovation, financial management, as well as entrepreneurship, without of course forgetting more general subjects such as human resources and marketing. To tackle challenges in their future jobs, students will have the opportunity to solve true case studies submitted by partner companies.
This new specialization, unique in Swiss hotel management schools, will welcome its first students in November 2018.
A double degree in 2021
Vatel Switzerland is completing its accreditation which will allow it to have the prestigious title as an “ecole supérieure” or “business school.” After three years of monitoring by the Commission Fédérale des Écoles Supérieures [Federal Commission of Business Schools], Vatel Switzerland will be able to, as of 2021, issue not only the French degree, a National Directory of Professional Certification (RNCP) level II, but also a Swiss degree.
