TORONTO — George Brown College’s Centre for Hospitality & Culinary Arts has launched The Food Tourism Entrepreneurship Graduate Certificate to prepare graduates to support local economies by building links between agriculture, hospitality and tourism.
The one-year certificate covers the links between tourism marketing, geography and experiences with gastronomy, beverage, culture, food traditions and communities.
“The impacts of COVID-19 on hospitality and tourism are unprecedented. As the economy recovers from the pandemic, the hospitality and tourism industries are poised to bounce back,” says Mohamed Mohsen, chair, School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, George Brown College.
The program prepares students to develop successful food-tourism businesses and gain employment in existing food and culinary-tourism companies, all while advocating for sustainability, transparency and access in communities worldwide.
