|There is a need for managers in the food industry who have an understanding of both management and food issues in order to tackle the threats to our nation’s health. In particular, the food industry needs employees with a solid foundation in marketing and nutrition in order to develop new healthful products that meet consumer needs.
We are the only campus at Western who offers this unique program. Students in Food Management will obtain knowledge in the foundational business disciplines of accounting, finance, operations, strategy and communications. Students will also take introductory level and advanced marketing subjects including consumer behaviour, product development management and brand management. On the food side, students will take courses in nutrition, global policies and food safety, food production management, and equipment selection and facility layout.
Note for 2024: Brescia University will merge into Western University, beginning in May, 2024. Read more about the strategic integration on the Brescia website.
