Culinary Management (BS)

Go Fire Up Your Career
Take your love for cooking to the top with Southern New Hampshire University’s Bachelor of Science in culinary management.

The four-year program pairs a focus on culinary arts and baking skills with the business and leadership knowledge you need for a management career.

The Curriculum
We’re more than just a “training school.” At SNHU you will get a true university education and real-world experience that will help you start your management career.

BS in culinary management courses emphasize emerging industry trends, sustainability, cooking and baking for those with restricted diets (such as gluten-free, diabetic and lactose-intolerant), and reducing costs.

Master the art of cooking and baking in hands-on labs. You also will prepare culinary delights for patrons of SNHU’s gourmet, student-run restaurant, The Quill, and our student-run bakery, Caffe e Dolce. Internships also provide valuable industry experience.

Flexible Program
The BS in culinary management was designed to accommodate students transferring from two-year culinary programs, including commuter and nontraditional students. Third- and fourth-year labs are offered in the evenings, and many non-culinary courses can be taken online or at our centers.

Five-Star Faculty
Our faculty members are enthusiastic teachers who want you to succeed. They all have professional certifications and industry experience. They are or have been bakers, innkeepers, executive chefs, world travelers, hotel managers, consultants, wine connoisseurs and more – and they’re eager to share what they’ve learned.
