Restaurant, Culinary, and Catering Management/Manager

Who doesn't love a good meal? Probably no one. Planning creative dishes, shopping for groceries, and creating a budget, however, aren't things everyone enjoys. For those who do, a restaurant, culinary, and catering management major may be the right fit. With this major, you'll learn to supervise and manage food and beverage preparation for catering services or restaurant facilities. Most programs provide detailed instructions in cost control, business administration, personnel management, menu planning, event planning and management, purchasing and storage, and all applicable laws and regulations surrounding the food industry. Considering the diversity of the program, you have plenty of career options to choose from. The field you specialize in will broaden your scope. After graduating, you may work as a chef, lodging master, dietetic technician, food service manager, dietitian, or nutritionist.
