The SHA/CIA Alliance brings together two premier institutions, The Culinary Institute of America and Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration.
Our cornerstone is the collaborative degree program, an intensive culinary curriculum and an in-depth hospitality management program that offers the best of both worlds. This is your opportunity to study at the premier institutions in their fields and, in an abbreviated timeframe (normally four to four and a half years), attain an Associate of Occupation Studies (AOS) in Culinary Arts from The Culinary Institute of America and a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Hotel Administration from the School of Hotel Administration.
Students graduating from this program will have added depth to their culinary knowledge and skills, and a broader perspective about the operations and impact of foodservice across the hospitality spectrum. At the Cornell Hotel School, students have the opportunity to learn about restaurant design and development, financing, and management, to study foodservice in hotels, resorts, spas, stadiums, institutions, and other hospitality settings, and to participate in classes and activities specifically focused on restaurant entrepreneurship. At The Culinary Institute of America, students will gain fundamental culinary techniques and skills, exposure to world cuisines, experience in flavor profiling and menu development, as well as the skills to produce successfully in a commercial kitchen environment.
