Turn your passion into a successful career in Gastronomy! The Gastronomy programme offered by Gasma combines both the Mediterranean tradition and the most innovative Gastronomy trends and techniques. And it is this perfect combination what has made Spain an international paradigm of gastronomic innovation and quality.

The Study Programme for the Bachelor's Degree equips prospective students with a practical approach and solid foundation on which to build their future careers. Since Gastronomy and Management are not isolated disciplines, students receive a global vision that will allow them to assume their profession in the labor market.

On an academic level, the study programme is based on four knowledge pillars:

Gastronomy. By transferring knowledge on the food product, culinary techniques and the agro-food industry, students will delve in the nature, origin and traceability of food and beverages and the principles in their processes. 

Science. Teaching students to develop a scientific method to internalize the importance of working with discipline and organization. Providing the tools to be able to develop an RDI department (research, development & innovation), which is essential in any company related to gastronomy.

Business Management. Taking a practical, applied approach to the hospitality business with the aim of equipping students with the tools they need to set up solid business projects and protect their financial viability. 

Languages. We encourage among students the use of English as a standard language while fostering the learning process with training activities that will take place in an international and multicultural environment.


Gastronomy, the tourism sector and the agro-food company are booming and constantly evolving sectors. The constant emergence of new needs defines the present situation.

The new professional that the gastronomic sector demands, must have a great interdisciplinary training alongside the areas of gastronomy, management and science. There is no doubt that this new generation of professionals must emerge from a specialized university degree.

In this sector, students will be able to take operative executive positions such as executive chefs or culinary directors and respond to management profiles such as Food & Beverage Directors. Graduates will be able to hold senior management positions in a company, create a gastronomic or agro-food business of their own or advise other companies on the improvement of their processes.
