Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland is delighted to announce a new partnership with Wang Sen Education Group, the leading baking and pastry education institution in China for nearly 30 years.
Through this strategic partnership, students will begin their studies at Wang Sen where they will cover the fundamentals in baking, pastry, and culinary arts over a period of 2,5 years. They will then transfer to Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland for the final three terms of the Bachelor of Arts in Culinary Arts. This unique opportunity enables students to graduate with a dual degree awarded through the University of Derby and César Ritz Colleges Switzerland, and recognized by the Ministry of Education of China.
Together, our focus on food entrepreneurship and Wang Sen’s reputation will create a strong pathway for students that will enable them to grow in their culinary careers.
“We are honored to partner with Wang Sen Education Group to build a strong and valuable partnership. Together, our focus on food entrepreneurship and Wang Sen’s reputation will create a strong pathway for students that will enable them to grow in their culinary careers," Tanja Florenthal, dean of Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland, commented.
This cooperation is a milestone for our students and the professional pastry education industry in China.
Wei Zhou, COO of Wang Sen Education Group, added that, “Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland (CAAS) is the only culinary school ranked in the QS ranking, the world’s most-consulted university ranking. CAAS is highly reputable in Europe and provides a high-quality education combining top culinary arts and food & beverage management. This cooperation with CAAS will renew the public perception and knowledge of Western culinary training in China. It will demonstrate that pastry education in China can reach a world-class international level, with a bachelor’s degree or even a pathway to a master’s degree. This cooperation is a milestone for our students and the professional pastry education industry in China.”
