The CIA is #1 in College ROI—Upon Graduation and for your lifetime!

The CIA is among the best ROI colleges and has the #1 culinary college roi rankings.

You know The Culinary Institute of America is the perfect culinary college for you, but you want to make sure it’s the right decision, especially when it comes to the Return on your Investment. And we don’t blame you because it’s an important lifetime decision. But don’t listen to us.

According to an independent analysis from the Georgetown University Center on Education and Workforce study of 4,500 colleges across the country, calculating college ROI based on federal data, there is no ifs, ands, or buts about it—a degree from the CIA not only pays back immediately but grows over time vs. any culinary degree that you could pursue from a degree-granting culinary college.

As you can see, the college return on investment for a CIA education is higher every decade—10, 20, 30, even 40 years—after graduation.

In fact, CIA’s 10-year return is significantly higher than the average for all colleges in the country.
