Entrepeneurship is not enought

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

The Postgraduate Degree in Strategic Restaurant Management is part of the Master’s degree in Restaurant Management and is designed for entrepreneurs who want to open their own restaurant.

The course lasts 3 months and is based on aspects to do with the stages prior to opening: conceiving the business model, product design and user experience, the design of the establishment itself, the business plan, the investment plan, project planning, execution, financing or the search for investors.

At the same time, it promotes skills for the creation and design of work teams and focuses on developing aspects of creativity through Design Thinking, the creation of sales pitches and their verbal or graphic expression.

During the course, you will visit various establishments with different business models implemented by their owners who will serve as a first-hand example and you will learn about the advantages and disadvantages of each one.

You will also attend sessions that are designed to inspire you in leadership styles through first-hand testimony from unique people. The Postgraduate Course in Strategic Restaurant Management's extensive range of experience activities completely sets it apart from any other course on the market.
