Innovation

Modules

‘Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower’ – Steve Jobs

The ‘I’ in CTIA stands for innovation. Training our students to become innovation-oriented sets them up for long-term career success. We’re particularly proud of this aspect of our offering, and continuously update our CTIA innovation modules to ensure our students gain skills and insight into the most up-to-date industry developments.

All of our students have the opportunity to tailor their curricula by selecting from our list of culinary and pastry innovation modules. These are intensive, highly practical courses – all the action happens in the kitchen.

The number of innovation modules (electives) a student can choose is determined by the core full-time programme. These are already included in our full-time programmes. Part-time students have the option to add modules to their programme at an additional cost. (Please note that the innovation modules are presented during normal office hours.)
