Program Description If you aspire to create memorable experiences for dining guests and have the passion and drive to work hard to achieve results, then Centennial College's Food and Beverage Management program is for you. The Food and Beverage Management courses in this diploma program are designed to prepare you with the job skills needed for success in the field and the leadership skills needed for a progressive career in the restaurant and foodservice industry. This includes everything from the large multi-unit organizations to small independent operations that add up to a $70-billion industry in Canada and an even larger one around the world. During this two-year hospitality program, you will learn in Centennial College's restaurant, quick service cafe and event centre before you embark on a 14-week industry field placement with one of the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts' food and beverage partners. You will also graduate with essential industry certifications (Smart Serve, Safe Food Handlers and CPR) that make you even more employable in the restaurant industry, which is often said to be an extension of show biz. From dynamic staff to innovative menus, a modern restaurant experience is as much about the show as it is about the perfectly prepared food and flawlessly executed service. And, as a Food and Beverage Management program grad, you will play a crucial part in making it happen. Are you an international student? If so please note that you will not be eligible for your post-graduation work permit if you take a semester off from your learning.
