Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland – Lucerne campus

The Bachelor of Arts in Culinary Arts is awarded by University of Derby, U.K. It prepares students for their future career journey, focusing on entrepreneurship as well as kitchen skills. With hands-on classes and small class sizes, students have the opportunity to develop their craft both inside and outside of the kitchen and the classroom. State-of-the-art kitchens also offer the ideal learning environment to hone their skills.

The Swiss Grand Diploma programmes offer an alternative, shorter term option, with three 11-week themed modules which can be taken as three independent building blocks. The Swiss Grand Diploma focuses either on Culinary Arts (in Le Bouveret) or Pastry & Chocolate Arts (in Lucerne).

All students benefit from the professional partnerships with Ritz Escoffier, Mane, and Alessi. Additionally, we are fortunate to count top chefs, including Chef Anton Mosimann (OBE) and the first Swiss female chef to be awarded a Michelin star, Irma Dütsch, as friends of Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland. Students benefit from a wealth of expertise as well as unique internship opportunities in some of the most highly sought-after establishments to launch their careers.

Campus Life

With two campuses, one in the historic centre of Lucerne and the other lakeside at Le Bouveret, Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland offers an innovative educational experience, is equipped with state-of-the-art kitchens, and benefits from multiple professional partnerships with industry pioneers.

As of summer 2016, our Le Bouveret campus is also home to The Mosimann Collection: A Culinary Heritage. This unique collaboration houses memorabilia gathered by Chef Anton Mosimann (OBE) throughout the span of his highly successful career. Chef Mosimann is a regular visitor to his collection, and a surprise cookery session with him is always welcomed by the students and provides enormous insight into the professional world.
