Choosing a Hospitality School

Some key characteristics to look for when deciding which hospitality school to attend include:

A school's accreditation is extremely important to consider because it will determine the type of recognition your diploma or degree will receive after you graduate. The Culinary Arts and the Baking & Pastry Arts programs at Sullivan University's National Center for Hospitality Studies (NCHS) are accredited by the American Culinary Federation's Accrediting Commission.


Sullivan's NCHS program also has a variety of course levels and options. Whether you're interested in Baking & Pastry Arts, Hotel & Restaurant Management, Tourism & Event Management or a similar program, we have something for everyone when it comes to the hospitality industry. Depending on which program you choose, you can earn a diploma, associate or bachelor's degree.


Staff strength is an important aspect not just in our hospitality program, but at Sullivan University in general. Our instructors are experts in their fields who have real-world work experience. They bring what they've learned over the years into the classrooms and labs, so you'll learn much more than you would from a textbook alone.


When it comes to hospitality programs, it's important that the facilities you learn in give you first-hand experience in real settings. In addition to our world-class labs, Sullivan operates Winston's Restaurant, Julep's Catering and The Bakery at Sullivan. As a hospitality student, you'll have the chance to complete an internship at one of these real-world classrooms that operate as functioning businesses.
