The partnership will equip students with the essential knowledge on entrepreneurial management with a focus on culinary arts.

“With this program, students will gain learnings from the best of two worlds – entrepreneurship and culinary arts. Students will have the foundational business and entrepreneurial skills, and at the same time know what’s in it for them in the culinary world and be ahead in terms of kitchen skills and product development,” said Ma. Veritas Luna, CCA Manila chancellor of education.

The program is a Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurial Management Major in Culinary Arts (BSEM-CA).

Aside from kitchen skills, students will learn how to operate a food enterprise and at the same time have the character to survive the competitive field of entrepreneurship.

“The key objectives of the program is to Provide, Nurture, and Guide. ‘Provide’ concepts and tools on entrepreneurial management. ‘Nurture,’ enhance, and develop the students’ entrepreneurial mindset, and ‘Guide’ toward establishing and running a profitable and sustainable food enterprise,” added Veritas.

Many food entrepreneurs or even foodie enthusiasts have jumped on the idea of creating their own ventures with innovative and creative twists. However, not all initiatives succeed due to lack of preparation and knowledge in terms of learning about the market.
