What is a hotel school?
In France, a hotel school is either a school with technical and professional training intended to train operational staff and supervisors, or a hotel management school, that is to say a business school specialising in the hotel industry. To work in the hotel industry, it is preferable to follow a programme in a hotel school which will make you a recognised hotelier first, and then a manager and eventually a leader. In the luxury industry, it is even more important because the specificities of luxury - attitude, communication, customer service, quality management, innovation, and management of the experience - are particularly well mastered in the hotel industry, more than in any other sector, and therefore particularly well taught in hotel schools.
What is taught in a hotel school?
A hotel management school teaches operations, management, human resources, marketing and finance with topics such as food and beverage operations and management, front office operations and supervision, housekeeping, management and leadership, cross-cultural management, strategic marketing, revenue management, event management, asset management, city marketing, critical issues in hospitality and tourism, etc. In the luxury industry, communication is essential, so we teach theater and acting techniques. Personal grooming, attitude, etiquette and protocol are also important. Finally, experiencing luxury and analysing its components is essential to develop your culture of luxury, but also to understand what the luxury experience means.
