The foodservice management option prepares students for
management careers in the hospitality and leisure industry. Graduates work in a
variety of settings from restaurants and hotels to convention centers and
entertainment venues often managing the foodservice function within another
employment sector (such as meeting and event planning for large high tech firms).
About 40 percent of our graduates continue pursuing bachelorís degree. Students in
the foodservice track can select courses that make them eligible for ACF chef
certification. The program provides several electives, which allows
students to customize their degree coursework.
The faculty and staff are committed to providing students with the practical
knowledge and experience needed to succeed in their chosen field and to
providing the central Massachusetts hospitality industry with the leaders of the
future. The program is partnered with the Central Massachusetts Visitor and
Convention Bureau and the Worcester Senior Center Campus to provide
concurrent hands on experience in addition to the classroom training. Every
course has an experiential component required for successful completion. The
result is that students graduate with a documented portfolio of meaningful
managerial experience. This balance of practical and classroom experience
creates results-oriented managers.
The hospitality and foodservice program offers block-scheduled courses that meet weekly. This format
better accommodates the off campus location and the experiential component of
the classes. All students are required to complete four core classes and an
industry co-op. Many of the students complete their co-op with the college
program at Walt Disney World.
The certificate in foodservice management is a proud participant in the
National Restaurant Associationís Management First program. Students can earn
simultaneous credentialing with the National Restaurant Association.
