Program description

Postgraduate Diploma in Culinary Arts

The Postgraduate Diploma in Culinary Management consists of one intensive study period of 6 months at the B.H.M.S. campus in Lucerne, Switzerland, and one practical paid industry training period of 4-6 months in the Swiss food production industry.

The B.H.M.S. Postgraduate Diploma in Culinary Management program is specifically designed for degree holders in other fields who wish to enter the international food industry.

The program offers students practical and professional core competency training in this field, so that they are able to function after graduation in a competent manner. This carries considerable value and prestige with employers worldwide. It can also benefit people looking to obtain the necessary specialized knowledge when contemplating opening their own culinary or catering business.

Students learn core food preparation and cooking skills before moving on to recipes and specific regional and international cuisines so that students can identify and prepare certain international favorites. Plate decoration as well as dessert and pastry preparation skills are also developed to provide students with a broad culinary skills base before progressing to their internship. Business and leadership skills and knowledge are fostered through a small number of postgraduate core courses and a selection of electives from which students can choose depending on their interests and previous educational backgrounds.
