Classes are taught in English | Dedicated professional training facilities on campus (Vatel Restaurant and Café, demonstration kitchen, bar, room division) | International internships in France to build professional experience | Opportunity to participate in the Marco Polo student exchange program.
Courses taught have the right balance between academic theory and professional practice.
