Full Program Description

Description  

You love the restaurant and beverage industry. Now, you’re ready to enhance your passion with the knowledge and skills required to succeed in today's restaurant and beverage operations industry.

In this two-year diploma program, you will develop restaurant management skills and build knowledge in the areas of wine, beer, mixology and the art of eating and dining. You will expand on those fundamentals with an understanding of food and beverage cost control, financial success, service leadership and human resource management.

Whatever area of the industry you love the most, that’s the one you can specialize in – managing or owning restaurants, bars and entertainment venues, catering companies or hotel food service operations.

Best of all, you’ll study at our state-of-the-art restaurant and learning facility, The Chefs’ House. Here you will have the valuable opportunity to put theory into practice as you work alongside emerging top talent and serve a public of discerning urban diners. You will also build your skills during a 14-week industry externship in your fourth semester.

To better hone your international food and beverage management skills, you have the option to partake in an exclusive European Study Tour visiting some of the top destinations in Europe.

This program has been accredited by the acclaimed Institute of Hospitality.

Program Standards and Learning Outcomes  

Each George Brown College certificate, diploma, advanced diploma and graduate certificate program is expected to deliver specific program learning outcomes. Program learning outcomes are statements that describe the knowledge and skills that students are expected to demonstrate by the end of their program of study. Programs are designed to deliver both vocation or discipline-specific learning outcomes and more generic essential employability skills (including communication, numeracy, critical thinking and problem solving, information management, interpersonal and personal skills).

In addition to the aforementioned learning outcome requirements, College programs are required to provide students with exposure to a breadth of learning beyond their vocational field, to increase their awareness of the society and culture in which they live and work. This breadth requirement is addressed through additional mandatory General Education courses in the program curriculum.
