Definition: A master class is a class given to students of a particular discipline by an expert of that discipline — usually music, but also painting, drama, any of the arts, or on any other occasion where skills are being developed.

This is not just a programme for the academic minded. The subject of food is both technical and creative and our food business masterclass mirrors this pattern. Involving a blend of sound business theory with real-life case study examples of successful businesses and guest speakers.

Previous graduates of Food Business Start-up have commented on how this differs from online courses:

…”there is no ceiling to the discussion, the course acts as a retreat to get true perspective and the ongoing access to alumni forum provides continuous support.”
