MFB is a program that creates the environment for combining practical knowledge about the food and beverage industry, with theoretical perspective. With a multidisciplinary approach, the program builds up the management foundations required in the food and beverage industry, as well as the soft skills. MFB allows a strategic mindset that is built with this specialization. For me, MFB is a unique experience in terms of integrating the professional experience I had into the lectures we attended.

Who would you recommend the MFB program to?

I would recommend it to students younger than 30 years old with only few years of non food / beverage related sector experience or older students either with a family business in this field or with related experience in food and beverage. It would also be inspirational for students who have a passion for this field to learn more of a management point of view.
