Diploma Program Overview

Get Ready to Build – and Live – Your Vision

You are an innovator. When you close your eyes, you see yourself managing and building a culinary business – maybe even your own. ICE’s Culinary Management diploma program offers a complete, sophisticated, and pragmatic curriculum that you need to achieve your dream – and keep it successful. We will teach you how to connect with your audience and market your establishment so that your culinary enterprise succeeds.

Learn from Industry Experts

Our seasoned instructors have opened dozens of their own restaurants, catering businesses, and food shops in New York and around the country. Most are also active consultants, passing along their freshest insights and experiences, eager to share their knowledge and perspective with you. They will teach you how to make your business generate the right impression and cater to your audience so that customer loyalty will grow. You will get a sense of how to troubleshoot business problems, analyze changing trends, and make fiscal modifications to keep your venture profitable. Through case studies, role playing, and group projects, we will train you to make good decisions for your team and your business. 

Our students’ varying goals and past experiences keep our program unique. Your typical classroom will include: career changers from diverse professions such as marketing, finance, nursing, and IT; recent college and high school graduates; and even working chefs and restaurant owners who want to learn more about the business side of restaurants.

Combine Business and Culinary Expertise to Accelerate Success

Pursue your vision with every tool to succeed. Enrolling in our Culinary  Management program in addition to either the Culinary Arts or Pastry & Baking Arts programs gives you the opportunity to “double major” and gain two diplomas, bringing you knowledge and expertise in both while offering valuable tuition incentives.
