100 % gainful employment in leading restaurants and hotels

In the last two decades, MICARS flourished with programs adapted to educational trends and job readiness requirements of the food service industry. From among its ranks rose young women coming from the underserved communities of Manila and its neighboring provinces. They found 100 % gainful employment in leading restaurants and hotels in major cities of the country and around the world.

State-of-the-art equipment & facilities for affordable food & beverage training

To meet a growing demand for institutional services in the hospitality industry, a six-storeybuilding with state-of-the-art equipment, facilities suitable for cooking and baking classes was established and completed in 1995 with financial assistance from the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Italian-based foundation, Associazione Centro ELIS.

Joy and excellence in service

Over time, MICARS has built and continues to craft a charming legacy of “joy and excellence in service” best exemplified by its students and graduates and recognized by its long roster of industry partners. MICARS gives the cutting edge as one of the leading culinary schools in Manila.

Topnotch Preparations for a Demanding Job

A Mentoring Program

Its Mentoring Program is a regular one-on-one conversation between a lifeskills trainer and the student. To date, it has made all the difference in reinforcing the right attitudes that capped the knowledge in theories and skills gained in the classroom and externship venues. Like fine wine, MICARS’ students mature within the two-year dualized training in housekeeping, food and beverage services, cookery, and bread and pastry production.

A Beautiful Sum of Four Parts

At MICARS, where passion and home crafts are considered a living art, there are four qualifications under the Culinary Arts and Institutional Services that brought out the masterpieces from among its scholars.

Baking & Culinary Art Courses

If Leonardo da Vinci were alive today, he would have taken a keen interest in MICARS and learn more than a thing or two in the baking and cooking classes held at the school’s spacious kitchen laboratories. Science and art play an important role in the preparations of international cuisines.

Welcoming its Asian Counterparts

Moving towards ASEAN integration, MICARS opens its doors to students from ASEAN-member countries as it becomes fully authorized to accept foreign students.
