For a year now, the pandemic has changed a lot of practices, habits, and norms. This has also motivated a lot of people to start their own small businesses, with most going into the food industry.
CCA Manila, the country’s top culinary school, has partnered with the University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P), a top university offering reputable programs on entrepreneurship. The partnership aims to help individuals establish a better and more sustainable enterprise in the food industry by equipping them with the essential knowledge on entrepreneurial management with a focus on culinary arts.
“With this program, students will gain learning 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,” says Ma. Veritas F. Luna, CCA Manila chancellor of education.
The program is a Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurial Management Major in Culinary Arts (BSEM-CA), the first of its kind in the country. 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,” adds Veritas.
Many food entrepreneurs or even foodie enthusiasts jump on the idea of creating their own ventures with innovative and creative twists but sometimes they fail due to lack of preparation and knowledge in terms of learning about the market. With this program, CCA Manila and UA&P—both the best in their fields—aim to cultivate students who will establish successful enterprises that would excite the market and consumers with their innovative products and timely services.
