Postgraduate Program

While hospitality education has been growing steadily for the past four decades, and the culinary landscape in India has developed exponentially, there has never been a programme with the singular purpose of developing chefs. Now for the first time in India comes the Advanced Culinary Programme, intentionally designed to equip those seeking to make a career as corporate or entrepreneurial chefs. Keeping in mind that no man is an island the programme approaches the art and science of the kitchen within the larger universe of wine, food and business.
