The Culinary and Dietary Operations Management Bachelor of Science degree is geared towards students with culinary experience who are interested in earning a degree that will prepare them for management positions in the food and nutrition industries.

This bachelor of science degree option is a "2 + 2" program that stipulates students must first achieve an associate degree in Culinary Arts from Schoolcraft College or another American Culinary Federation Education Foundation (ACFEF) accredited college prior to gaining admittance to the Culinary and Dietary Operations Management bachelor of science degree. Students must also complete all core ability and bachelor degree general education requirements in addition to completing required bachelor’s degree courses.
