    Your Global Destination for a Career in Food

    If you’re an international student, we welcome you to discover how the CIA can connect you with a great career in the food industry! As a globally recognized leader, we’re dedicated to providing you with the world’s best culinary education. Join students from around the world—we welcome diversity of cultures and viewpoints, which only enhances the CIA experience for all students and faculty.

    Be sure to check out our International Student Viewbook, and get started by reviewing our international student admissions requirements.

    At the CIA, you’ll benefit from:

    • Earning a degree from a college with a renowned global reputation. Top employers in the food industry often look to hire CIA graduates first. As a senior talent acquisition manager for Hyatt Hotels Corporation noted: “You know that a CIA graduate is going to stand apart from a candidate from another school.”
    • Full-service support to help you succeed. This includes expert chef-instructors, personalized academic support, more than 2,000 internships, counseling programs, and a lifetime of free career services.
    • A fun and rewarding college experience. Choose from lots of student activities, events, clubs and organizations, and athletics.
    • Safety and security. Our campuses have 24-hour security personnel ready to address any emergency or issue. In addition, Hyde Park, where our New York campus is located, was ranked the fifth safest large town in New York.
    • Proximity to New York City. Home to some of the world’s most famous and acclaimed restaurants, New York City is only a two-hour drive away from our Hyde Park campus.
    • Membership in our more than 50,000 alumni network. Being a CIA graduate gives you exclusive networking resources that offer a wealth of career opportunities and connections.
