Bachelor of Culinary Arts Management
The IFT's BA Culinary Arts Programme is new programme designed with the modern hospitality professional in mind. The first cohort of students joined the 4-year course in September 2011 and will graduate in 2015.
Whether they intend to pursue a career as a culinary chef; a front of house manager; or an all-around culinary professional, the 4-year course draws on a wide experiential base of proven lecturers and skilled craft technicians. With worldwide experience ranging from 3,4 and 5-star hotels to Michelin restaurants to event venues and the like, the IFT draws on this vast knowledge base to deliver a well-rounded broad-based foundation from which the students can flourish.
With this in mind the IFT also promotes links and continually builds bridges with industry in an effort to provide much-needed professionals with the potential to practice their craft in some of the finest establishments around the world – and indeed many IFT alumni are in fact doing just that.
Lastly, the wide-reaching culinary arts skills set taught in this programme by itself would be of little use without a thorough complimentary teaching package that incorporated such essentials as languages; culinary vocabulary; financial planning; management theory; culinary culture; trends in gastronomy; human resources and organisational behaviour; as well as such things as environmental considerations and sustainability issues; legislation; marketing and entrepreneurship.
In this regard, the IFT's 4-year culinary arts degree course is dedicated to providing students with an unparalleled up-to-date skill set which marks the IFT out as a beacon of educational excellence both within the pan-Asian region and beyond.
