Obtain Your Associate Degree

This is a specialized culinary training program with an on-ground and online component that provides newcomers the best of both worlds. For students who are just starting their culinary education, the program begins with hands-on instruction in the professional kitchens at Le Cordon Bleu. Our professional instructors teach students foundational skills in cooking and baking, and provide training in key aspects of kitchen operations. Next, for newcomers and holders of a culinary arts Certificate or Diploma, the Associate in Culinary Operations provides comprehensive training focusing on the discipline of food service operations. This unique program can help students advance their career opportunities in customer service, procurement, purchasing, management and other areas of food service operations.

The program is designed for:

1] Individuals who have a culinary arts certificate or diploma and want to obtain their Associate degree; the online component offers the flexibility to study while continuing to work. (Such individuals may forego participation in the on-campus portion of the program, provided they have successfully transferred all hands-on courses.)  Acceptance of transfer credit is at the sole discretion of LCB.

2] Individuals starting their culinary education who want the hands-on culinary arts training at a Le Cordon Bleu campus for a period, and then complete the remainder of their 21-month* Associate in Culinary Operations program online.

Focusing on developing food service operations skills, the Associate in Culinary Operations provides training in:

  • Food safety and sanitation
  • Cost control and purchasing
  • Hospitality supervision and entrepreneurship
  • Restaurant and dining room management, and more.

Our Associate in Culinary Operations is Designed with Your Goals in Mind.

Online - Graduation Rate

The campus began providing instruction after the date range used for the graduation rate calculation. The graduation rate is calculated AFTER there are graduates from the longest program at the school based on a formula required by the U.S. Department of Education. For this reason, data is not available at this time.

Graduation Rate

A first-time student has no prior postsecondary experience before enrolling at this campus. This means that a student who attended another college, university or other postsecondary school before enrolling at this school is not included in the calculation. The rate also does not include students initially enrolled part-time, taking individual classes (as compared to enrolling in a full program), or only auditing classes. These rates are calculated using the Student Right-to-Know formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements. The statistics track all first-time, full-time and certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students who began school during the date range and have completed within 150% of the normal program length. For example, for a two-year program, the graduation rate would include students who had completed within three years of beginning the program. This statistic is not specific to one program alone; rather, all applicable undergraduate programs are included in this overall rate. Information pertaining to the Graduation Rates of all postsecondary institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education may be found on the College Navigator website. http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/
