    Choose from Accredited Associate, Bachelor’s, and Master’s Degree Programs

    Associate degree programs should provide fundamental skills, techniques, and cuisine studies.

    Bachelor’s degree programs should provide the same foundation, plus build cultural, operational, and leadership knowledge.

    Master’s degree programs should be highly focused, convenient for you, and help you take your knowledge and career to the next level.

    • The CIA’s master’s degree in food business gives you skills and connections you simply can’t get with an MBA. Its primarily online format includes three short residencies at our New York campus and the CIA at Copia in Napa, CA. With the master’s degree in wine management, you’ll gain high-end wine and beverage expertise from the bottle to the table, and study in an ideal setting—the world-famous Napa Valley. Both 30-credit programs prepare you to be innovative leaders and savvy, sought-after professionals in your chosen field.

    The college should be accredited by a leading agency for higher education.

    • Accreditation validates the quality of your education, adds long-term value and marketability of your degree, and allows you to pursue advanced degrees at top colleges and universities around the world. All CIA degree programs are accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the same organization that accredits other leading colleges and universities in our region. Accreditation also allows us to participate in federal financial assistance programs that help pay for your education.
