Overview

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the first semester of this program will be held in an online format starting in Summer 2020. 

The Food and Beverage Management courses in this diploma program have been designed to prepare you with the job skills for success in the restaurant and foodservice industry and the leadership skills for a progressive career. This field will include everything from the large multi-unit organizations to small independent operations that add up to a $70-billion industry in Canada and more around the world.

During this two-year Food and Beverage Management program from Centennial College , you'll learn in Centennial College's restaurant, quick service cafe and event centre before you embark on a 14-week industry work-integrated learning experience with one of the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts' food and beverage partners.

You'll also graduate with essential industry certifications (Smart Serve, Safe Food Handlers and CPR) that will 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. As a Food and Beverage Management program grad, you'll play a crucial part in making it happen.

It’s Your Shift Training and Awareness Program

This program will include an innovative industry training and awareness certification, It’s Your Shift. The certification will equip you with crucial knowledge and provide current resources focused on sexual harassment prevention and safe practices for intervention as a frontline worker or manager. It will support you, as you enter the hospitality industry, to become a leader for the prevention of sexual harassment and contribute to the evolution of safe and welcoming work environments.
