Bachelor in Culinary Arts Management The IFT's BA Culinary Arts Programme is new programme designed with the modern hospitality professional in mind. The first cohort of students joined the 4-year course in September 2011 and will graduate in 2015. Whether they intend to pursue a career as a culinary chef; a front of house manager; or an all-round culinary professional, the 4-year course draws on a wide experiential base of proven lecturers and skilled craft technicians. With worldwide experience ranging from 3,4 and 5 star hotels to Michelin restaurants to event venues and the like, the IFT draws on this vast knowledge base to deliver a well-rounded broad-based foundation from which the students can flourish. With this in mind the IFT also promotes links and continually builds bridges with industry in an effort to provide much needed professionals with the potential to practice their craft in some of the finest establishments around the world – and indeed many IFT alumni are in fact doing just that. Lastly, the wide reaching culinary arts skills set taught in this programme by itself would be of little use without a thorough complimentary teaching package that incorporated such essentials as languages; culinary vocabulary; financial planning; management theory; culinary culture; trends in gastronomy; human resources and organisational behaviour; as well as such things as environmental considerations and sustainability issues; legislation; marketing and entrepreneurship. In this regard the IFT's 4 year culinary arts degree course is dedicated to providing students with an unparalleled up-to-date skill set... [-]

Arts organizations make communities come alive – from symphonies to jazz bands, theaters to sculpture gardens, museums to community arts centers, public radio to festivals. All of that activity is made possible by arts managers. Arts management can be an exciting, fulfilling career for someone who likes to be close to the arts and artists and wants to work behind the scenes to make the arts happen. Arts managers work behind the scenes to bring art and audiences together – raising funds, marketing, organizing volunteers and facilitating programs. At UW-Green Bay, Arts Management is both a major and a minor. Many students pair the Arts Management major or minor with studies in music, studio art, theatre, dance, gallery and museum practices, English, or history. We believe that successful arts managers are equally proficient in art and administration – and we also believe that the arts are a unique industry and have management challenges that are not found in other kinds of businesses. Your studies will include arts management core courses along with courses in the arts, not-for-profit management and business. An internship or other practical, real-life experience is an important part of the experience. Who should be a Arts Management Major? Arts Management is an ideal major or minor for students who like to be around the arts but are not necessarily interested in being an artist or performer. It’s also a good choice for those who are preparing for artistic careers and want to have some training in the... [-]
