Who can manage a hospitality group?

Imagine that for an entire week, you’re managing a four-star hotel and a resort in the Indian Ocean: what an interesting challenge, one that our MBA students in teams more motivated than ever, brilliantly met!

Who can manage a hospitality group?

In the Vatel International Business Game, a virtual management simulation game, fifth-year Vatel students throughout the world compete against each other for an entire week.

The December 2017 edition thus brought together students from all walks of life, from Vatel Nimes to Vatel Switzerland, without forgetting Vatel Mauritius or Vatel Tunis. They had to make the best calls on decisions concerning human resources, marketing, finance, etc. 

The bonus? Competitors were able to follow, in a live stream, changes in how their team was ranked: day after day they saw the direct impacts of their decisions for the company they were steering.

After this intensive week, the Nimes Yko&co team was designated as the “Vatel Dream Team.” Congratulations to Zhaojun GU, Han WU, Fotis ATHANASOPOULOS, Boris QUILLARD, Guanzhou XIONG, Ishaan JAYARAMAN, Cheng CHI, Nicha CHANJAVANAKUL and Marion GUILLET for having implemented this excellent strategy leading them to come in first.
