IUE graduates will prepare the flavors unique to Turkish cuisine
Bilsev Group, who is preparing to expand to Dubai this year with its Ferdi Baba, Fabrice Restaurant and Baba Pizza brands, will give priority to graduates of Department of Gastronomy and Culinary Arts, Izmir University of Economics (IUE) in the recruitment process. IUE graduates, who know the world and Turkish cuisine very well, follow the latest trends, and speak two foreign languages, will have the opportunity to gain experience and improve themselves in the international arena by going to Dubai. Young people from IUE, who will take part in the kitchen, will also contribute to the promotion of many flavors unique to our country abroad.
Izmir University of Economics signed a protocol with Bilsev Group last November in order to improve internship and work opportunities for its students. In this context, IUE Department of Gastronomy and Culinary Arts students started to perform internships at the Bilsev Group brands Ferdi Baba, Baba Pizza, Fabrice and Padre. The young people who had the opportunity to get to know the business life before graduating also gained experience in determining the right career goal for themselves. IUE and Bilsev Group further developed this exemplary cooperation they started and signed a new process that offers young people the opportunity to work in Dubai.
