The Luxury Hotelschool is located on Boulevard Haussmann in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, a prestigious address very close to the department stores for an authentic Parisian experience during your studies.
A Bachelor's degree in a French hotel school, it is unique and the best preparation for a career as a manager in the luxury hotel industry. In three years, the Bachelor covers all the major aspects of tourism and hospitality management, including rooms division and gastronomy.
The Master's degree is specialised in strategy, leadership and cross-cultural management for the luxury hotel industry. A small number of students benefit each year from highly specialised and very advanced lectures based on research, including case study, presentations and debates and individual supervision for their dissertation.
The 8th district of Paris is one of the chic neighborhoods of the capital since it hosts more than half of the top luxury hotels (Palaces), but also Avenue Montaigne, Place de la Concorde and Avenue des Champs-Élysées... As one of the most prestigious hotel management schools in France, the Luxury Hotelschool had to offer a superb campus in the heart of Paris.
The school is organised around an interior garden bathed in light. With a ratio of more than 6 square meter per student, far beyond international standards, the premises offer large classrooms and relaxation areas including a 100 square meter lounge where breakfast and lunch are served. Students have a separate entrance at 44 rue des Mathurins, the address is served by eight metro lines.
The premises benefit from Haussmannian architecture typical of Parisian buildings.
The school is located on the ground floor of a very high-end property complex which houses, among other businesses, the headquarters of the Swiss bank UBS and the airline company Emirates.
Students have a separate entrance at 44 rue des Mathurins.
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
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.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.
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.Master
