Food Business School Launches

 Food Business SchoolThe CIA is opening The Food Business School (FBS), a new center for executive education. Based at the Greystone campus in the Napa Valley, The Food Business School broadens the CIA's commitment to the future of food education and leadership with specialized programs for executives, recent graduates, and mid-career explorers. The mission of the FBS is to enable and empower entrepreneurial leaders to design, deliver, and lead transformative innovations that address the world’s most pressing food challenges—and its greatest business opportunities.

Registration for programs at the FBS begins in January with the first courses commencing in Spring 2015.

Led by accomplished entrepreneur, investor, and educator William Rosenzweig, the FBS plans to provide executive courses and degree programs that deliver cutting-edge, practice-based business education. Students will be guided by leading food industry practitioners and professors from the nation’s top business schools, who will join forces with CIA faculty to provide a dynamic and rigorous new curriculum in a non-traditional learning environment.

Course offerings, faculty, and registration for the spring session will be announced in January. Go to for more information, to receive updates, and to join the FBS@CIA network.
