If you’re a people person and like a fast-paced atmosphere, consider a culinary career. Opportunities abound in restaurants, healthcare facilities, institutions, and other areas where food is prepared and served. Our Culinary Management program prepares you for supervisory and management positions in the field by introducing you to the many types of operations within the food service industry and engaging you in performance-based instruction.

Culinary management students are taught how to train and supervise employees effectively and manage a food service operation efficiently.

In addition to obtaining general knowledge about the industry, students gain skills in critical thinking, computer use, human relations, and organization through classroom instruction, seminars, and on-the-job experiences. Students are given the opportunity to graduate with the nationally recognized ServSafe sanitation certification as well as learning the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety system.
