This programme aims to develop students into a new generation of catering management professionals to serve the manpower demands of the hospitality and catering industry locally and regionally. The programme integrates culinary arts with professional management knowledge and skills. It encourages creativity and curiosity to develop intellectual critical thinking and problem solving abilities. Students immerse in Chinese and Western culinary practices interspersed with food science and culinary-related design underpinned by a business management framework.
Graduates are expected to start their careers as management trainees in hospitality and catering operations, for example, catering companies, restaurants, airline catering, hotels, clubhouses, theme parks, exhibition centres and non-profit organisations, where they can excel their culinary knowledge and skills. After gaining sufficient experience, they could advance to senior management or entrepreneurial positions, as food consultants, food stylists or food critics, to elevate service standards and shape the development of the culture of culinary arts and hospitality.
This programme has been accredited by the Institute of Hospitality (UK).
