A career in food service offers a rare combination of variety, creativity, and the satisfaction of hands-on accomplishment. Chefs use skill and imagination to prepare everything from delicate pastries to entire meals. Food and beverage managers focus on the bigger picture, overseeing day-to-day operations to ensure excellent customer dining experiences and business profitability.
Baker’s culinary arts programs, offered at the Culinary Institute of Michigan (CIM), are designed to provide you with the full range of skills you’ll need to succeed as a chef or in a kitchen supervisory position.
At CIM, you study under experienced chefs and other food service professionals who have been chosen for their excellence in the culinary arts and teaching skills. Our class sizes are small to ensure you have plenty of hands-on training and one-on-one attention. Through classroom work, labs, and internship experience, you learn to artfully prepare culinary specialties, develop menus, and manage a foodservice operation profitably.
Overall, food service is the second-largest employer in the United States, and career prospects are expected to be good, especially in fast-growing resort and vacation destinations. By 2022, food service is expected to add the highest number of jobs among all industries.
