Culinary Arts Management MA
I did lots of research before I made my decision to do my MA at UCB. The practical element of the course was very attractive and the fact that not many institutions in Europe teach Culinary Arts Management at a postgraduate level. What I also liked about UCB was its history, as well as its reputation and the fact that its degrees are accredited by the University of Birmingham.
I have learned a lot about culinary arts at a management level, various competencies, business negotiations and culture exchange. I enjoy being aware of people culturally and being able to learn how to motivate people to do their best work, and how to read their body language. There is a good balance of practical and theory and I am really looking forward to doing a placement as part of the course.
My home country, India, is very big – and it’s all about standing out and lessening the competition. Having a postgraduate qualification will help make that happen. To begin with, though, I want to be a chef – but not for the long term. I want to eventually progress to a role in management in the food processing sector and look into doing research in food development.
