Symbiosis School of Culinary Arts
Symbiosis School of Culinary Arts (SSCA) is a constituent of Symbiosis International University, founded in 2016, and is the first school fully dedicated to offering niche qualifications in culinary science and arts in the country. SSCA was established with a view to cater to the need of the Food Industry to train and develop specialized culinary professionals. Our flagship Bachelor’s degree in Culinary Arts has been one of the most sought after culinary degree in the country.
In order to cater to the growing demand for well-trained hospitality professionals, SSCA is now commencing a specialized Hospitality Management bachelor’s degree from 2020.
The Indian tourism and hospitality industry has emerged as one of the key drivers of growth among the services sector in India. The forecasted 8% growth of Indian tourism industry for the next 10 years* along with the global market trends of the ever-increasing number of travels for business and leisure, the long term outlook for the hotel & hospitality industry is indeed positive. The hospitality sector has now become a significant industry in India. It is a sunrise industry, an employment generator, a significant source of foreign exchange for the country. The booming tourism industry has had a cascading effect on the hospitality sector with an increase in the occupancy ratios and average room rates.
Hospitality and Foodservice are among the fastest developing sector in the world. The projected growth is expected to throw open many opportunities for Indian students to pursue a career in both the hospitality and foodservice industry. During the last decade, culinary has emerged as a preferred career option in the foodservice industry.
However, it takes a well-rounded and planned education to be counted among the best in the profession. Along with knowledge, the service skills on how to manage people, control costs and attract customers in order to succeed are increasingly necessary to succeed in this competitive industry.
Keeping in view the increasing demand for specialized programs both in Culinary and Hospitality field, SSCA offers two unique three- year, full-time bachelor’s degree programmes- BSc (Culinary Arts) and BSc (Hospitality Management). Both our programmes are designed to prepare students for a wide range of career options in the Culinary and Hospitality fields.
Symbiosis believes in industry and academia interaction at all stages of student development and as a part of our curricula, the students undergo well planned and monitored internship in collaboration with leading hotel and food industry organizations.
Innovation in the culinary field, adaptability, business ethics and social responsibility are emphasized to develop students into becoming leaders as well as responsible citizens.
