Food Management at Surrey University - EI

Food Management

The food industry is an exciting field in which to work. Its diverse nature presents very particular challenges to those within it. Many people reach management positions within the food sector either with relevant food-related knowledge, but no management training, or with management experience, but little food-related knowledge. This programme provides prospective managers with both types of knowledge. It is an applied programme, providing a very different perspective on food-related topics to, for instance, food science programmes. Specifically, the programme aims to develop an in-depth understanding and insight into aspects of food management. It provides a sound management education whilst developing the skills to ensure the safety, acceptability and nutritional adequacy of the food that is provided.

The programme offers a high quality vocational education, which is intellectually rigorous and up-to-date, as well as relevant to the needs of future managers, executives and professionals in the food industry. The programme has a business management orientation related to service industries and draws on a range of cognate areas of study to explain and analyse the particular sector. An integrated approach is taken so as to provide a coherent view that explores the interrelationships between the various components of the programme. The programme can be taken on a full- or part-time basis. Part-time study is based on attendance for two days per week for two years.
