SHA Renews Alliance with the Culinary Institute of America

Jan 24, 2011

The School of Hotel Administration and the Culinary Institute of America have renewed their alliance for another five years. This unique alliance enables students with a passion for the culinary arts and for business management to earn both an Associate in Occupational Studies in Culinary Arts from the CIA and a Bachelor of Science in Hotel Administration from SHA in an abbreviated amount of time.

The collaborative degree program is the cornerstone of the alliance, but future initiatives will focus on encouraging collaborative faculty research and student entrepreneurship in the foodservice industry. The alliance formed in 2005, and since its inception 34 students have graduated with the two degrees and another 30 are currently enrolled.
