    Bachelor’s Degree Concentration


    Intrapraneurship: Driving Innovation from Within an Organization

    You’re a changemaker, someone ready to blend entrepreneurial drive with a passion for food. Now you can learn all the steps that go into creating new foodservice concepts within a corporate environment, through the CIA Intrapreneurship concentration. It’s the entire process from beginning to end—you’ll develop a creative proposal, pitch it, and finally implement the idea in a real public setting on campus. What a way to prep for your career!

    “It’s an invaluable experience for anyone who wants to pursue a career in the fast-casual or otherwise corporate industry. You get not only the knowledge to run a business, but the skills required to maneuver successfully through a multilevel organization.”—Yejin Yoon, CIA Bachelor’s Degree Student

    Program Highlights:

    • Immerse yourself in key entrepreneurial concepts such as business plan content development and pitching, financing, corporate ventures, and innovation.
    • Work with classmates to develop and pitch foodservice ideas to culinary professionals and CIA faculty (they will choose one project for the entire class to implement).
    • Plan alongside your student peers how you’ll develop menus and recipes, facility design and operations, ordering and inventory management systems, and sanitation regulations.
    • Bring it all together as you and fellow students launch your foodservice concept for the CIA community.

    Only students in the Food Business Management degree and Hospitality Management degree are eligible for this concentration.

  • “I had a blast working with my classmates to develop recipes, conquer challenges, be creative, and make our own decisions to construct an entire restaurant from start to finish. No other culinary college offers such a comprehensive approach to learn how to actually open a new food business.”—Matthew Francis Johnson, CIA Bachelor’s Degree Student
