California Career Colleges: Hospitality and Restaurants Degrees

Order's up! Discover your career in restaurant management

Restaurant management is a career that can take you places. There are almost an infinite number of eateries in the world and each one needs a savvy and experienced manager. Enrolling in restaurant management degree programs can give you real-world experience through internships while you study such courses as business management, computer skills, budgeting, menu development and hospitality training.

Other courses you could take include:

  • Safety and sanitation
  • Human resources
  • Food Preparation
  • Nutrition

Restaurant management schools

Working toward a restaurant management degree can take as little as two years, but many restaurant management schools also offer four-year degrees. While an advanced degree isn't often required, consider this: The Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that the job outlook for food service managers is only expected to grow about 5 percent in the 2008-2018 period. The job opportunities that do arise will most likely be filled by those who have both an education and workplace experience.

Careers in restaurant management

The mean annual wage for food service managers, also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, for the May 2010 time period was $52,220. Restaurant managers often work in restaurants, of course, but with a restaurant management degree, you could also work in the production aspect, perhaps becoming a wholesaler who supplies necessary items to restaurant owners, which is one of the highest paying industries for degree holders, according to the BLS.

You might choose to put your skills to work in a hospital setting, or for a large company or perhaps a caterer. The types of careers a restaurant management degree could lead to are many. If you've imagined using your business and creative skills in one career, this might be the program for you.
