Official Program Description

Master in Management of Food Systems of Quality and Gastronomy (Food Quality)

The Master's in Management of Food Systems of Quality and Gastronomy (Food Quality) is part of a process of enhancement of the Italian agri-food industry that recognizes Parma as one of the most important industrial clusters in Italy, known as the “Italian Food valley”. It is in the Food Valley that a set of unique knowledge has been created in the national agri-food scene combined with a corresponding attention by students who see this industrial reality as a concrete professional outlet.

The management of food production, in the current international competitive context, requires a new generation of specialists equipped with management and communication skills suited to a new economic and social framework in Italy and abroad in the agri-food sector. Although Italy is an importer of commodities, it is also an exporter of quality processed food products that reflect the Italian gastronomic culture. The world of Italian agri-food businesses requires figures who, in addition to managing production, are able to design and manage food quality, as well as to interpret consumer needs by communicating to them the qualitative plus of Italian gastronomy....
