Maybe you think you have what it takes to manage a dining room operation or run a bustling kitchen, but you want to get the right training before you make the leap. Or perhaps you have always wanted to own a top restaurant, but want to understand the foodservice industry from the inside out. Either way, in the Entrepreneurship & Restaurant Ownership diploma program at The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Vancouver, you have the opportunity to become competent in the identified priorities of the foodservice industry: communication, training, leadership, management, human resources, technology, accounting, marketing, and customer relations.
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.
*Credentials and experience levels vary by faculty and instructors.
