London, Nov 25 (ANI): Fast food chain McDonald’s is unveiling a foundation degree for its restaurant bosses in the UK.

The degree, which will be accredited by Manchester Metropolitan University, marks the fast-food company’s latest move into education.The two-year foundation degree in managing business operations is a demonstration of how seriously the company takes the training of its staff, said senior vice president, David Fairhurst.

It would mean that McDonald’s employees will be able to get a nationally-recognised qualification without leaving their jobs, he added.

It will be taught by a combination of classroom study, e-learning and training in the workplace.

“People no longer want to choose between jobs and education. They should not be parallel universes,” the BBC quoted Fairhurst as saying.

Fairhurst also noted that the restaurant company wants to be a ‘pioneer’ in educating employees. (ANI)
