Managing is not enough.

Here we train the managers of the restaurants of the 21st century.

Managing a successful restaurant is a challenge due to its complexity.

It is not only a question of having a balanced and well-designed gastronomic offering in order to bring in income. There are many factors involved in the management of a business: relating to customers, pushing the business through digital media, responding effectively to demand, establishing relationships of trust and working with suppliers; all factors that affect the management of a restaurant business.

Having control over these factors is key to operating safely and coherently across our whole business. The restaurant sector is in constant change, where competition is tough and where there is a need to respond to customer expectations. This is why new trends must be tools to help us improve and lead our business to success.

The Postgraduate Degree in Restaurant Operations Management is part of the Master’s degree in Restaurant Management and is designed for those wanting to manage a restaurant by taking control of the day to day running of any establishment.

It focuses on key aspects of the day to day running of a restaurant and provides the tools, methodologies and the vision for optimum operations.

At the same time, it develops creative skills by providing methodology and helping you with cognitive skills. This postgraduate course will also help you improve your communication skills: interacting with your customers, your suppliers, your employees and society in general, improving your teamwork skills and establishing your way of leading.

With a duration of 3 months and intensive work, this postgraduate course provides a pragmatic overview and emphasises day-to-day management, purchasing, logistics, pricing, best operability and dealing with other actors, suppliers, customers and workers.

You will visit establishments and see their business models. These will be explained by their managers and owners, who will help you understand the difficulties they have to overcome in their day-to-day work.You will enhance your creative thinking skills for problem solving. We will guide you towards innovation as a tool to create an edge and a way of leading based on trust.
