With the recent announcement of the 12th board results Kamaxi College of Culinary Arts (KCCA) affiliated by Goa University, the state’s only culinary B-school, offering a three year degree programme approved by Goa University has opened admissions. The institute, which is in its second academic year, has French Master Chef and Maître Cuisinier de France Patrick Albert on the faculty team as Head Chef.
Created for aspirants in culinary management, the three-year degree programme designed by experts features in-depth industry knowledge and skillsets, business education and advanced food production. Admissions have begun for the next batch slated to start in July 2022.
KCCA offers its students an opportunity to undergo an internship in the US, Japan and Germany in addition to opportunities in hospitality establishments in India.
The on-campus degree programme is endorsed by Goa University and the Tourism and Hospitality Sector Skill Council. KCCA has recently forged a collaboration with the country’s leading Business School Goa Institute of Management (GIM) to create a culinary business incubation programme.
Says Parixit Pai Fondekar, Chairman, KCCA, “Our job is to prepare students to deal with the challenges, explore the opportunities, even create niche segments of their own. At KCCA, we give students the tools to build their own future, in what is now and will continue to be a highly competitive industry. Our focus is on training leaders of tomorrow, to develop their business acumen, foresight and confidence in themselves so that every decision for the venture they manage is based on a rooted foundation.” Parixit visited France recently and interacted with master chefs from the region in an effort to explore internship and job opportunities for the Goa-based students of the culinary management course.
Students who have passed their Class 12 exams, with English as one of the subjects are eligible for the programme. The new academic year begins in July 2022. Admissions are in progress.
