Course detail

This postgraduate award in food business and management has been designed to produce graduates who are exceptionally well equipped with the aptitudes and competencies necessary to design, manage and lead developments within the food industry. This course will provide both a coherent programme of academic study and an in-depth educational experience focusing on the role of the manager and management issues within the international food industry, food service sectors, hospitality, and an exploration of cutting-edge food research.

This course takes an innovative approach, led by a multi-disciplinary team, that studies the food business sector ranging, from management theory and practice to food supply chain management. It embraces product innovation, within a social science perspective, whilst acknowledging the ethical and nutritional responsibility of business in modern society.
