Creating breathtaking courses and mouthwatering dishes takes talent, but establishing and keeping it as a profitable business would need a whole new set of skills altogether.
Teaching such skills is part of the advocacy of Moderne Culinaire Academy (MCA), a young and dynamic culinary institution that specializes in helping students understand the more technical and business aspects of the hospitality industry while honing their culinary skills.
This year, MCA is taking its advocacy a step further with its partnership with the prestigious KDU University College and Berjaya University College of Hospitality (BUCH) in Malaysia. Both highly renowned for their culinary programs, these institutions can now be a part of every MCA student’s journey towards being a successful professional in the culinary and hospitality industry.
Those enrolled under MCA’s Higher Diploma in Culinary Arts and Kitchen Management program now have the option to go to Malaysia after their two-year certificate course and continue their studies further on either campus. Upon completion of the additional two years, they will be conferred with a Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary Arts Management while adding another year would entitle them to a Master’s Degree.
The programs cover a high level of business entrepreneurship training (with classes on marketing, accounting, and operations) alongside intense hands-on learning (butchery, pastry- and bread-making)—education perfect for aspiring executive chefs and restaurateurs.
“We at MCA take pride in helping our students become the creme of the crop in their chosen field,” MCA’s Academic and Administrative Head Jester Ong Chuan shares. “This partnership only strengthens that belief since KDU and Berjaya are known to have the best culinary and hospitality programs in Southeast Asia. This will open a lot of doors for them.”
Established in 1983, KDU University College boasts of an impressive 96 percent employment rate for its students upon graduation in top-tier hotels and establishments, both in Malaysia and other parts of the globe. Graduates of Berjaya University College of Hospitality similarly enjoy a high level of opportunity since the university is under the famed Berjaya Group, a multi-national corporation with a stellar portfolio in the food service and hospitality industry.
Moderne Culinaire Academy is located at 155 Diego Silang St., Phase 1 AFPOVAI, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
