What makes Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland one of the best culinary schools in the world?
From the kitchen to the boardroom
We strongly believe in the dual Swiss model that skilfully integrates theory and practice. We combine practical learning with a clear focus on helping our students grow as people, entrepreneurs and leaders.
Students can choose from different pathways in culinary arts, pastry and chocolate arts and vegetarian culinary arts and graduate after one year of professional training with a Swiss Grand Diploma. They can also choose to take the full three years for a Bachelor’s degree and spend over 1,100 hours in the kitchen, along with courses in business management and entrepreneurship.
Our strong focus on building both practical and business skills ensures that our students are well-rounded graduates who go on to become great chefs and establish their own businesses.
