Course Summary

Course overview

Managing professional culinary enterprises is an exciting challenge. Blending artistry, technique and creativity with the demands of management and business requires a unique range of abilities. Our Culinary Arts Management postgraduate course will arm you with this advanced skill set, driving you towards a dynamic career in the culinary environment of the hospitality industry.

University College Birmingham is internationally renowned for food and hospitality training, and our course will enhance your knowledge of classical culinary technique and how to adapt it to the modern international culinary environment. Innovation, recipe and food product development will form key components of your study, while you’ll also learn how to meet changing consumer demands and research trends, as well as the challenge of managing culinary operations as profit centres.

Not only will you be supported on campus by our vastly experienced lecturers and our outstanding kitchen and food development facilities, but you’ll also have the chance to prove your culinary skills and knowledge in the industry through an optional placement for up to six months, setting the foundations for your career in senior management.

Modules

Today's global hospitality industry requires employees to have an understanding of management and leadership across cultures, so you will explore the issues surrounding this while assessing the move away from local cultures to a more cosmopolitan environment. You will examine the management styles, motivation techniques and leadership theories as well as any complexities and contradictions that may occur.
