An article in Leader, essential reading for hospitality management (Profile)
Arnaud Bouvier, President of ESH Paris Hotelschool, talks about the French hotel school’s demanding yet ultimately rewarding ‘Project Management Learning’ approach.
The founding family has been involved in the hospitality industry since the nineteenth century, and today the industry is regularly involved in the design of our courses and programmes. In 2011, M2 students presented their projects in front of a jury of hoteliers, chaired by Philippe Orville, Head of Human Resources for Starwood in Europe. The subjects included solid waste management; setting new standards for French gastronomy; the 21st century Hotel Manager and a disaster management plan, in partnership with the International Red Cross. The business plans presented by M1 students covered a 100% French wine bar; a 100% organic restaurant; a low-cost four-star hotel in Paris’ business district, La Défense, and a 100% ecological hotel.
