Singapore Campus Graduates 41

David Myers, chef and owner of two Tokyo restaurants, delivered the commencement address to 41 graduates of the Singapore campus on September 16. Myers was one of Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chefs in 2003. Singapore Graduation Class 2014

Myers had several restaurants in Los Angeles and Las Vegas before setting his sights on Japan, where he opened the high-end pâtisserie Sola and the California-inspired David Myers Café in 2010. He is expanding to Singapore in early 2015, with a restaurant and bar set to open at the Marina Bay Sands luxury hotel.

"The field we have chosen constantly tests our determination, our creative tenacity, and our stamina. But we love it. We wouldn't do anything else," Myers told new bachelor's degree recipients preparing to embark on exciting careers in the restaurant and hospitality world.

This is the third graduation ceremony at the CIA's international campus, which opened in 2010. These graduates began their CIA studies in 2012 after completing a three-year diploma program in partnership with the Singapore Institute of Technology. Credits from previous business management courses transferred, allowing students to complete their degree with two years of the CIA's unparalleled hands-on culinary training and certain required liberal arts courses.
