Intake

A full day is necessary to organise the intake for a class of 20 students maximum. We need time to welcome them individually, organise orientation, debrief placements and of course throw a cocktail party.

Thanks to our modern facilities, each classroom is full of light and measures 40 square meter (430 square feet) for a maximum of 20 students.

Restaurant

Students benefit from their restaurant every day, but they can also enjoy regularly the restaurant Le Charles for an occasional banquet or a cocktail.

The school's restaurant is open to the public, a special place where our student discover guest relations, the techniques of traditional service and professional cooking in the kitchens. Restaurant work is only one of the many subjects taught at school, hoteliers trained in France need to understand this domain.

Events

The Gala diner is an annual event organised by groups of students who select a theme and build an exclusive event with a banquet, special decor and entertainment.

This event is supervised by lecturers in gastronomy, event management and project management. Third year students organise and manage first years students in charge of operations. This real-life exercise is organised for parents, students and alumni only.

Event management

A student is organising the photo shoot that guest can enjoy with a dancer from the Rio carnival and her musician.

The school organises many event where students can apply their new skills including management where many ussual situations are encountered and can be analysed and explained.

Group work

Group work is at the heart of our teaching philosophy. This is the reason why classrooms are split into a lecture zone and a lounge with light couches that the students can move at will to work, always supervised by their lecturers.

Groupwork could consist of a debate, for example: communication in a restaurant is the responsibility of the kitchen first for one group, and of service for the other group (management of operations); or to motivate staff, they must be paid better for one group, they must receive individual consideration for the other group (human resources and management); or a debate on the main reason to select a hotel online (marketing...)

Bachelor

Gastronomie

Kitchen work is nothing more than one of the many subjects that a manager in the luxury hotel industry must know about. The restaurant is also a place to learn about guest relations, sometimes for the first time. It is a must-have for all hotel schools.

The school does not train chefs or Maitre D' but only managers, F&B managers for example. They must master the operations but their job is management and guest relations. Chefs and Maitre D' in France are trained in professional high school (lycée hôtelier) or Culinary institutes.

The school is administered by members of the faculty. Mr Bouvier for example teached management to the first year students, project management in the top-up and Leadership in the Master's programme.

Master

Library

Students benefit from their restaurant every day, but they can also enjoy regularly the restaurant Le Charles for an occasional banquet or a cocktail.

Our students receive many academic books included in the programme and gain access to the eLibrary that contains more books and most of the research papers published worldwide since the 6o's, an extensive source of knowledge that they learn to use with their lecturers.
