Global Academy pushes the boundaries of quality education and superior value as it offers professional and lifestyle courses of the highest standard with unmatched cost-effectiveness. Now, more and more people can follow their culinary dreams by partnering with the Global Education System.
The Academy opened its first branch in the Ortigas area in April 2007 with a mission of providing students with relevant education and professional training at modest rates in order to prepare aspiring chefs and industry professionals for the growing opportunities of the international culinary and hospitality industries.
The Academy’s founders, Chef Rob Pengson and Chef Benjamin Ledesma, Jr., continue to work hard to uphold the vision of the school as an honorable organization that provides the highest standards of education and training for the benefit of its students, customers, partners and country. In order to service more people, Global opened its 2nd branch in Alabang Zapote road last 2008 and a year after it opened its 3rd branch in Quezon City. In 2010, Global has opened its 4th branch in Makati making us the only professional culinary school to have 4 branches in Metro Manila.
Global Academy is continually seeking ways to improve itself and the industry by investing in the growth of our chefs by allowing them to compete internationally and by letting them have their continuing education so as to further hone their skills and knowledge. In our pursuit of excellence, we have not only upgraded our facilities but we have also brought in cutting edge and modern techniques of cooking to complement the traditional methods that we teach through our very own science department called The Epicurean Lab. We believe in helping students learn the fundamental skills in the kitchen and then giving them the option to learn more than just classical cooking.
The Goose Station opened in 2009 and it is a 100% Global Academy staffed restaurant that advocates both traditional and modern techniques in producing world-class cuisine. We believe that the culinary industry is very dynamic therefore we are pioneering the growth of this industry in our country.
In 2012 Global Academy is the first culinary school in the Philippines to receive The World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) Recognition of Quality Culinary Education. This means that the school's culinary programs have met WACS' high quality standards of culinary education. With this new recognition for quality culinary education from WACS, it does not only bring the school to the next level but it also raises its profile in the international global culinary landscape.
Global Academy believes that professional culinary dreams do come true when dedicated students come in partnership with a committed school.
