Culinary Arts Management MA

For me, the best part of the course so far has been what I have learned about food history – how certain dishes and food elements have developed over time and experimenting with classical artistry in a modern setting. The Culinary Arts Management MA seeks to blend blends culinary artistry and technique with business and management acumen. 

I would recommend UCB to anyone interested in studying culinary arts – from NVQ level to postgraduate – as the university has a great reputation academically and within the industry. The catering facilities are excellent and so are the lecturers. Its city centre location makes it easily accessible to a wide range of students. 

I currently work as a Culinary Arts Management lecturer at UCB, teaching on the FdA and BA Culinary Arts Management courses. I’m studying for my postgraduate qualification so I’m able to teach students at that level. The best thing, by far, about being a university lecturer is the students. It’s great to work with people from all walks of life that share the same interest as you. Not only to they learn from me, but I learn from them. 

My advice to students thinking of taking this course is to work hard and manage your time efficiently. Make sure you read the books on your reading list and make use of UCB’s extensive learning resources. 

If you want to succeed in the industry there is one thing you must have: passion. If you have a passion for your work you can lead and inspire those around you.
