BANGKOK, May 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vatel Thailand, a partnership between France's Vatel Hotel & Tourism Business School and Thailand's Silpakorn University, are accepting applications for the August 2020 intake of its BBA in Hotel Management, an international double degree program preparing students for a successful career in the hotel and tourism sector, with a new option to graduate in 3 years.
Vatel Thailand’s BBA curriculum offers the right balance between theory classes and practice, all taught in English by an international faculty, along with internships at partner hotel chains.
Vatel Thailand's BBA curriculum offers the right balance between academic theory and practice in professional training at the school, including Vatel Restaurant and Café, said Asst. Prof. Dr. Sompid Kattiyapikul, Dean of Silpakorn University International College and Director of Vatel Thailand. Most importantly, students conduct at least two internships at partner hotel chains in Thailand and throughout the world.
"To Asian students, we are offering the quality of an internationally recognized program, in a friendly environment, close to home," Dr. Sompid said. "This is a challenging year for tourism globally, but international hotel chains are continuing to expand in Asia and so it's important to study the right courses to cope with the dynamic employment demands of the profession once things return to normal."
Vatel, established in France in 1981 by Mr. Alain Sebban, is the 1st Worldwide Business School Group in Hospitality & Tourism Management with 51 schools across four continents, providing students the opportunity to participate in the Marco Polo exchange program. Since 2003, over 1,500 students have graduated from Vatel Thailand.
The theory classes, all taught in English by an international faculty, range from hotel entrepreneurship and innovation, hospitality in the 21st century, marketing, and business planning, to international tourism economy, human resources, cross cultural management, and service psychology. The students can also take Chinese and French lessons.
Upon completion, students receive two internationally accredited degrees from Vatel and Silpakorn University. Those wishing to enter professional life quickly, can complete the program within 3 years, instead of 4.
Vatel Thailand provides state of the art classrooms and facilities which are also capable of delivering online academic classes.
