This Master’s is addressed to professionals who want to take a quality leap in their training and their career.
The ideal candidate for the master's programme will hold a university degree in the area of gastronomy, pastry or culinary science. For candidates with degrees in other areas, consideration will be given to experience in the gastronomy field, i.e. professional kitchens, restaurants, pastry workshops, etc.
Exceptionally, the master's admissions committee may authorize access to candidates without university degrees who can attest a professional experience profile that makes them eligible for the normal following of classes. As an example, these types of profiles can be:
- Advanced vocational training degrees, technical studies or diplomas in gastronomy and/or pastry.
- Other non-regulated studies in gastronomy and/or pastry from reference schools or centers.
- Having developed a professional activity in restaurants, pastry workshops, etc. for a minimum period of 2 years.
Those candidates without university degree who access the Master’s programme and by the end of the programme cannot attest to be in possession of the necessary requirements to be able to receive the 'Master’s Degree' title, will receive instead a Specialization Diploma issued by UCH-CEU.
Cardenal Herrera University and Gasma work with a dynamic and innovative methodology that allows students to fully develop their professional profiles. For this reason, 80% of the hours in the Master's Degree are intended for practical training.
Students learn in practical and participatory sessions by working with internationally renowned chefs. As far as the management area is concerned, students face real business situations and learn first-hand about major success stories.
The goal is to obtain an experiential knowledge that goes beyond the classroom limits. Students will learn to value all factors involved in gastronomy: farmers, manufacturers, distributors, laboratories, R&D+i, etc.
The trainers will continuously monitor and evaluate the knowledge acquired. At the end of the Master's Degree, students must prove their skills in a Master's Degree Final Project, which is highly practical.
Your training will be completed with internships in high level gastronomic restaurants, once the academic sessions are finished. These internships are formed by 530 external practice hours, and these can be recognised by accredited skills.
All the subjects in the Master's Degree are divided in three major areas in order to offer a global training.
> Master’s Degree Final Project
The Master's Degree Final Project allows students to implement all the skills acquired during their training.
Complete your training in gourmet restaurants and prestigious gastronomic businesses and improve your CV. Learn from the experience of the best professionals and through teamwork at the highest level. Live the day to day of this profession.
