Overview

If you are seeking to develop a career within the culinary environment of the hospitality industry, this course provides a direct career pathway for you. 

The management of professional culinary enterprises proves an exciting challenge. Artistry and technique need to be blended with business and management acumen, coupled with the skills of creativity and innovation. The challenge is to always meet changing consumer demands, research trends and effectively manage an operation. 

You will study classical culinary technique and adapt it to the contemporary culinary environment. Innovation, recipe and food product development will be strong components of your overall experience. The international nature of the modern culinary environment is reflected in the content and delivery of this course – as are the challenges of managing culinary operations as profit centres. 

Some previous culinary experience is required, but the course is also open to students from educational and industry backgrounds.
