Program description

Bachelor's Degree in Gastronomy

The Bachelor’s Degree in Gastronomy aims to train professionals specialized in culinary techniques, but also qualified to lead and manage a gastronomic business.

The objective of this Bachelor’s Degree is to train professionals specialized in culinary techniques, but also qualified to direct and manage a restaurant anywhere in the world.

It is not just about training the most innovative and advanced chefs, but also about guaranteeing the best training in professional management for the gastronomic and catering sector. That is why this is the only official Bachelor’s Degree that combines haute cuisine with management and mixes the key ingredients of food with the techniques to generate the most profitable gastronomic business. Because nowadays great chefs are also a brand, right?

Without avant-garde facilities you cannot study avant-garde cuisine. That is why all the practical part of this degree takes place at Gasma, Gastronomy & Culinary Management Campus.

Gasma is located at only 5 minutes from CEU Cardenal Herrera University and the facilities are considered by many to be the best for gastronomy training in all southern Europe. In fact, specialization programs for professionals around the world take place at Gasma and it is not uncommon to meet a chef with two or three Michelin stars teaching a Masterclass during any other week of the course.
