Pre culinary school eduacation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there a particular associates degree anyone can recommend before attending culinary school? I've considered a business or accounting degree because I thought they would help in the future running of a restaurant, but I thought maybe someone would have a different and sensible idea.

I dont see a problem with getting a degree in business/management. 

 

Heck , im going after my bachelors in management... why you ask?

 

Because an associates degree in culinary arts wont allow you to get a masters , teach , etc....

Well at least not in my country. 

 

Also if one day you end up realizing you wanna take a back seat and not stay on the line working your arse off a bachelors degree can help you work in other areas in the culinary feild. 

Since i don´t plan on working the line forever and actually may wanna be an instructor i rather have at least a masters in business/restaurant management and an associates in culinary arts ( required to teach culinary arts in my country ). 

 

Ill get my bachelors in business and hopefully then my associates in culinary arts :P

Till then i work the line for the fun of it :P and the experience.

Well, that truly depends on your personal skills like how efficient you are in dealing with the management part like in hospitality industry or food service management industry. Since, many culinary and hospitality programs include key business related topics, such as problem solving, hospitality human resource management, control systems, food and beverage operations, and managing for profitability. Also, the students in the Culinary Bachelor of Business Administration degree program receive training in financial management and organization classes in preparation for the rigorous challenges of managing and running a culinary facility. So it would be fine if you choose some related course of it. 
Apart from this, You can also opt to take business-related courses such as Financial Management, Marketing and Promoting Food, and Food service Management. Also, you can hone your leadership skills in classes like Psychology of Human Behavior, Leadership and Ethics, and Professional Food Writing. 
Map out your own education plan with a variety of electives and exciting concentrations that suits your personal interests.
