Gastronomic Business Management

The School of Gastronomic Business Management offers a cutting-edge educational program, preparing students in the professional and ethical aspects which provide skills for leadership and successful development. Students learn culinary techniques for the most important world cuisines, and to apply technological, scientific, administrative and organization skills.


Students carry out research projects to create new gastronomic products and techniques, with a solid and sustainable theoretical, methodological, and professional basis. They will become professionals capable of managing their own business and of offering efficient service in industries such as catering, hotels, and restaurants. They will also be prepared to enter other areas of opportunity, where they can take on positions of responsibility in tourism firms, either in administration or in operations.


Students prepare to work as chefs in any kind of kitchen, including industrial. They will learn technological trends in the process of food preparation, as well as the ingredients and additives used in these, in order to offer their clients an innovative and quality product. They will master the processes and chemical reactions which occur when foods are manipulated in a laboratory or kitchen. This physical-chemical knowledge will allow them to improve and promote new foods.
