The Culinary Entrepreneurship graduate program was launched in Spring 2016 to create a specialized program initially focused on the business education needs of culinary arts graduates. This specialized program prepares students to own and operate small businesses in food and beverage service. The program is taught entirely in English, in keeping with the university’s mission, and is meant to attract international students who are not fluent in Korean as well as domestic students.
The Culinary Entrepreneurship Master’s Degree focuses on the academic study of business from an entrepreneurial perspective, aligned with the particular challenges to food and beverage businesses via case studies, problem-based learning, and internships. The current curriculum was developed by benchmarking US/ European schools of entrepreneurship.
This English-language master’s degree is the only degree of its kind in Korea and provides the knowledge and skills necessary to understand the entrepreneurial process. It is aimed toward the development of students’ creativity, judgment and business acumen.
The program is a 1.5 years degree with three main semesters of 15-weeks each. The program is full-time and requires 27 credits to be completed to graduate. A Thesis is optional.Requirements
