Study in Kigali, Rwanda
Rwanda is located at the heart of the East and Central African region. Due to the country's progressive governance and business-friendly investment climate Rwanda has registered tremendous progress over the past 20 years. Rwanda today is ranked among the top ten fastest-growing economies in the world.
The capital Kigali is considered as one of the most beautiful cities in Africa. Set amidst gently rolling hills, with manicured lawns and immaculate, palm tree-lined avenues, Kigali also enjoys a reputation for being amongst the cleanest and greenest cities in the world.
This young and dynamic city is rapidly becoming a hub for business travelers, hosting major conferences, conventions and exhibitions. It also caters to high-end eco-tourism travelers who arrive in the city before connecting to the national parks in other parts of the country.
Kigali has a large student population and is an ideal place to live and study with its clean, safe and orderly environment.
Rwanda is an attractive eco-tourism destination and is ranked the third greenest country in the world by the World Travel Guide. The country’s rich biodiversity includes majestic mountain gorillas in the north, mighty lions, stately elephants and graceful giraffe in the east, Africa’s oldest rainforests and panoramic tea plantations in the south as well as picturesque shores along the beautiful turquoise waters of Lake Kivu in the west.

Since that time, new campuses have opened in Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa.
Located on four continents, the network of Vatel schools makes up the 1st Worldwide Business School Group in Hospitality and Tourism Management, elected by professionals as the Best Hospitality Management School.
