The World of Institut Paul Bocuse

Higher education

Inspired by two visionaries – Paul Bocuse and Gérard Pélisson, Institut Paul Bocuse is among the world elite when it comes to education in the fields of hospitality management, food service management and the culinary arts.

Institut Paul Bocuse trains more than 1,000 students each year, representing 55 nationalities studying on 10 international campuses. From undergraduate through to doctoral level, our courses benefit from an innovative teaching approach recognised by the 2017 Worldwide Hospitality Awards. Our Institute is also a member of the elite Conférence des Formations d’Excellence du Tourisme (CFET).

For more than 28 years, the Institute’s vocation has been to share our expertise and know-how internationally, supporting development projects in numerous countries upon the request of public or private institutions. We’ve built our development strategy upon an educational hub created in partnership with the best schools and universities in the world and our network of several thousand alumni located in more than 80 countries across the globe.

Our training restaurants (Saisons, l’Institut and Expérience), as well as our 5-star training hotel (Le Royal) offer a unique opportunity for our students to put their skills to test in real-world situations faced with a highly demanding clientele.
