Setting up Hotel Business in France


SRBGOLI

Hi,
I am Sri Ram from India. I am into Hotel and Service Apartment business for the last 6 years. I have been to Toulouse France a few times. Now I am 37 years old. I have plans to start a Hotel or B&B business in France and settle permanently. To fulfill this I would like to start with the following action plan:

1. Completing a MSc or MBA in Toulouse
2. Applying for APS
3. Setting up a Company while on APS
4. Starting the business with either a Hotel or a B&B.
5. Applying for Passport Talent (work Permit)
6. Getting Permanent Residence
7. Getting the citizenship.

All suggestions are welcome for other than above action plan.

I don't really know enough about your position, but it's normally better to focus on language and acculturation by finding work in the sector, getting a good understanding of the French setting and value proposition etc. I don't see much value in taking a masters degree taught in English.

Most people who run accommodation businesses in India can't speak French and are not well-positioned to run businesses in France. Imagine a French person running a venue in India, with little experience of running businesses outside France. If you had that experience, you might have mentioned it. If you don't, you will be well advised to work in established business in France, perhaps even starting as a business partner and then taking up control. I think a course in French would be more valuable than one in English.

I shoudl also mention the Institut Paul Bocuse, but it's a bit more oriented towards the big hotel chains. They have a one-year course that could interest you: https://en.institutpaulbocuse.com/level/4-year/specialisation-the-hospitality-entrepreneur/ but a program in French would be much better.

Duncan has already pointed you in the direction of some good school choices. 

I would definitely suggest focusing on your career goals, and refining them as needed. I would say that unless you can already speak French at a fluent level, trying to leverage a degree to work in the country is not the best idea. 

If you're looking to transition to Europe, pick a country where you can already speak the language and go backwards from there. Or, work on another language on a full-time or immersive basis for a year and then start looking for a degree.
