Hospitality? Culinary Management? Restuarant Management?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I recently have been giving light to the idea of returning to school to get a degree, however I am confused as to what degree to go for. Many schools I have seen, have a Hospitality program and a Restaurant and Hotel Management program as well, but neither go into much detail as to differences and experiences,  so I was wondering if anybody else had some help. I work mainly at large outdoor festivals and concessions around the country, feeding thousands of people in four days. I am a great quartermaster, and my management skills only get better with experience. Thanks for any help.

First, you should tell us exactly what you want to do. If cooking, then culinary management, if general  food managing, then some kind of hospitality or restaurant management. My school has a culinary and hospitality management programs. About 3 or 4 of the classes overlap for both, but culinary goes into more cooking and hospitality goes into more of running a hotel or restaurant.

 

Here are the classes required, plus others like english, math, etc.., for my culinary program:

 

Food Service Sanitation and Safety

Introduction to Hospitality

Food Specialties: Baking

Food Purchasing

Basic Food Preparation

Food Specialties: Garde Manger I

Culinary Externship

Food Specialties: Pastry Specialization

Advanced Food Preparation

Food Specialties: Cuisines of the World

Meat Fabrication

Culinary Management Practicum I – Restaurant Management

Culinary Management Practicum II - Kitchen Management

Practical Exam

Beverage Management

Banquet and Convention Management

Dining Room Operations

Survey of Nutrition

 

If you already know how to cook well, you may want more managing classes, but maybe you want to learn classical style cooking, then a culinary management degree may be what you want.
