Culinary Intrapreneurship

    Bachelor’s Degree Concentration


    Intrapreneurship: Driving Innovation from Within an Organization

    You’re a changemaker, someone ready to blend entrepreneurial drive with a passion for food to improve an organization from within. Learn what it’s like to create new foodservice concepts within a corporate environment through the CIA bachelor’s degree concentration in Intrapreneurship. Sharpen your skills to develop creative proposals that you can pitch, develop, and implement yourself.

    “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

    Other highlights:

    • Immerse yourself in key intrapreneurial 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
