This third and final year of the training programme focuses on the student’s specialisation and learning business management skills specific to gastronomy and hospitality, in order to equip them with the keys to success in the business world. The main modules concerned are: marketing, management, human resources, customer relations, social networks, finance and accounting.

Specifically designed with international careers in mind, the programmes are taught in English and French (translated into English) for the professional modules.

Students who have successfully completed the programme will be awarded an international “International Bachelor - Talent in Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management” diploma from Paris-Dauphine University and a “Bachelor of Business in Culinary Arts Management” or “Bachelor of Business in International Hospitality Management” diploma from Le Cordon Bleu institute.

There will be a maximum of two graduating classes per year, with a minimum of 25 students per class. The majority of 3rd year programme students will have taken the first two years at Le Cordon Bleu institute.
