Take a risk or play it safe?
Hey guys, I am in a little bit of a delima. I am currently in community college and are trying to obtain some credits to transfer to a bigger university to major in sales or marketing. However, I have always wanted to learn how to cook. So my question is, do I take a gamble and transfer to a cooking school and hope I succeed, or take the safe route and go to business school? Thanks a lot guys. Feedback and criticism is much appreciated!
You may want to consider going to a university that offers a four year degree in culinary arts. There are some universities that offer a program for a BS in culinary arts and a minor in sales or marketing. A "cooking school" teaches you the basics so you can learn to cook on the job. A culinary program at a university is the same. In the corporate world a BS can open many doors. You also learn other skills that are very useful in the kitchen and working with others. Good luck whatever you decide.
I think the path of least resistance to your first million would be having a Business degree. Although I think there are many a business degrees working the produce section in Walmart. In todays world you need a Masters degree to real money and a successful career. In a few years a Collage degree will be as mandatory as a high school diploma is today. In order to succeed in a Culinary school you need a lot of passion. Only Passion for your trade will get you through the hard times.
