Culinary ManagementDegree Programs

I want to take the lead.

When you go to a restaurant, you’re not just looking at the menu. You’re taking in the ambience, watching the flow of customers and employees, tuning in to the rhythm of the whole operation, even peeking into the kitchen. You know there’s more to it than just serving food. And if you’re willing to work for it, our Culinary Management degree programs can open up a career in the business side of a demanding industry. At a time when consumers expect more choices than ever, you need to be equally adept in the kitchen and the front of the house. That means knowing how to manage people, control costs, and create harmony among the menu, the ambience, the staff, and the customers. You’ll be surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively driven students. And you’ll be pushed, challenged, and, above all else, supported by experienced faculty* who are committed to your success.

Give me a chance and I’ll show what I can do.

Through our rigorous and well-rounded Culinary Management degree, you’ll explore both the front and the back of the house as you become familiar with traditional and emerging flavors from every corner of the world. You’ll study everything from Nutrition and World Cuisine to Wine and Spirits Management. Choose a campus below to learn more about our program offerings.
