After opening its doors in Paris in 1895 and London in the 50s, Le Cordon Bleu opened its third school in Europe and the chosen location was Madrid. In 2011, the first Spanish speaking school of the Le Cordon Bleu network in Europe started functioning.
In its 120 years of history, Le Cordon Bleu has become an international example in training professionals in culinary arts. Le Cordon Bleu’s schools are a meeting place for different cultures and thousands of students from different countries that, every year, fill its halls. Only in the Madrid school, 35% of its students come from abroad, mostly from Spanish speaking countries such as Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico or Ecuador.
Le Cordon Bleu has always betted on an international approach to its education system. That’s why it’s common to find new openings of the prestigious school around the globe, like, for example, its fourth European school in Istanbul, which opened its doors in 2012, or the new debut of the Shanghai school.
