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 opt for an innovative methodology and an active role for participants. The goal is for students to develop their professional profile to the maximum level and to acquire all the skills that the sector demands. The best way to do this is through an innovative and dynamic methodology. For this reason, 80% of the hours in this Diploma are dedicated to practical training.
Students train in practical and participatory sessions by working along internationally renowned chefs. We bet on experiential learning beyond the classroom.
Upon completion of the Master’s, students must accredit the acquired skills in an eminently practical Master’s Final Project. Training includes internships in top gastronomic restaurants once the teaching period is over and the Master’s Final Project has been completed. The internship duration is 350 hours, which can be validated by accrediting skills.
The subjects in this Master’s offer the student a complete training in the most innovative culinary techniques and trends both in cuisine and dessert making.
Technical knowledge is a fundamental tool to achieve attractive gastronomic proposals. This Master’s revisits the most classical and avant-garde techniques while maintaining creativity management as a guiding thread.
Gastronomic trends are the guidelines that rule market demand. For this reason, in this Master’s we will review the proposals that represent contemporary cuisine and the world of patisserie.
The study programme will cover content from the bases of classic bakery pastry to the most avant-garde techniques. Students will learn about properties of raw materials, the new market trends and the most innovative proposals that will enable them to create a quality sweet gastronomic offer.
