History

Throughout its history, The Culinary Insti­tute of America has played a pivotal role in shaping the future of foodservice and hos­pitality. Widely recognized as the world’s premier culinary college, the CIA has an industry-wide reputation for excellence and accomplished alumni whose leadership, influence, and professionalism are a testa­ment to the quality of a CIA education.

Such success could only happen through the inspired leadership of some very talented and dedicated people. In the mid-1940s, faced with a shortage of back-of-the-house (kitchen) professionals, members of the New Haven Restaurant Association in Connecticut had the idea of creating a school to train World War II veterans in the culinary arts. In 1945, they approached attorney Frances Roth with their idea and asked her to be the school’s administrative director. Mrs. Roth had never worked in a restaurant, but she became determined to establish a school that would become “the culinary center of the nation.” With financial, social, and polit­ical support from Katharine Angell—who was married to Yale University President Emeritus James Rowland Angell and who would later become chair of the board of the cooking school—Mrs. Roth set about achieving her vision.

On May 22, 1946, the New Haven Restaurant Institute opened its doors in downtown New Haven, CT as the first and only school of its kind in the United States. The Institute enrolled 16 students in its first class and employed a faculty consisting of a chef, a baker, and a dietitian.

As the foodservice industry grew, so did enrollment, necessitating a move in 1947 to larger quarters: a 40-room mansion adjacent to Yale University. The school’s name was changed to the Restaurant Institute of Connecticut and, in 1951, it became known as The Culinary Institute of America, reflecting its national scope and the diversity of its students. The college expanded its educational program to two years and introduced continuing education courses for industry professionals. By the time of Mrs. Roth’s retirement in 1965, the CIA had increased its enrollment to 400 students and operated a $2 million facility. Double-class sessions were initiated in 1969 to accommodate a backlog of applications, and an auxiliary campus was leased, but with more than 1,000 students and facilities strained to the maximum, the CIA’s admin­istrators launched a nationwide search for a new home. They found it in St. Andrew-on-Hudson, a former Jesuit novitiate in Hyde Park, NY. The new campus opened two years later, with its main building renamed Roth Hall.

In 1971, the Board of Regents of the State of New York granted the CIA a charter to confer the Associate in Occu­pational Studies (AOS) degree in culinary arts, making it the first culinary college to be so authorized. An externship semester was created, and in 1973, the CIA intro­duced its first on-campus public restaurant into the curriculum. Today, students at all four CIA locations have the opportunity to learn and practice front- and back-of-the-house skills in the college’s on-campus restaurants. In 1976, the CIA replaced its trimester system with its trademark Progressive Learning Year (PLY) system, which enabled smaller groups of 72 stu­dents to graduate and enter the industry every three weeks (16 times a year).

Continuing to blaze trails in the eleva­tion of the culinary profession, in 1981 the CIA became the only school authorized to administer the American Culinary Federa­tion’s prestigious master chef certification exam. The college continued to advance culinary research and education with the 1988 addition of the General Foods Nutri­tion Center, the nexus of nutritional cook­ing studies at the CIA. Two years later, in response to a growing industry need for professionally trained bakers and pastry chefs, the CIA enrolled the first class of students in its new associate degree pro­gram in baking and pastry arts. The col­lege completed its transformation into a fully rounded institute of higher learning in 1993, when it was approved by the New York Board of Regents to offer Bachelor of Professional Studies (BPS) degrees in culi­nary arts management and baking and pas­try arts management. A culinary science major was added in 2012 and an applied food studies major two years later. In 2016, the CIA was approved to award the degree of Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in food business management.

In 1995, the college expanded its global reach by opening its first branch cam­pus, The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Located in the heart of California’s Napa Valley, the campus first offered programs exclusively for food and wine professionals, and has since grown to include degree and certificate programs, as well as courses for food enthusiasts.

The CIA’s expansion continued in 2008, when The Culinary Institute of America, San Antonio opened its doors to undergraduate students, industry professionals, and food enthusiasts. In 2010, the college opened its first international location, in Singapore. Today, in partnership with the Singapore Institute of Technology, the CIA offers its bachelor’s degree program in culinary arts management from its location on the Temasek Polytechnic campus.

In 2015, the CIA launched The Food Business School (FBS), its center for executive education. That same year, the college expanded its California campus operations to include Copia, the former center for food, wine, and the arts in downtown Napa. The new location will offer food and wine education programs, as well as industry leadership conferences and initiatives. In 2016, the CIA extended its educational offerings into post-baccalaureate education with the Wine and Beverage Graduate Certificate program.

From its humble beginnings in a single building in New Haven, CT, today the CIA continues to influence the future of food through its commitment to advancing knowledge, leading our industry, and mak­ing a difference in the lives of people all over the world.

Career Opportunities

An education from The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) offers students unparal­leled career opportunity in an industry that generates an estimated $782.7 billion in annual sales in the United States. In 2016, 14.4 million people are projected to be employed in the foodservice business, mak­ing it the nation’s second-largest private-sector employer, according to the National Restaurant Association (NRA).

The CIA is represented around the world by more than 48,000 alumni who achieve success across a wide range of careers. They become executive chefs, personal chefs, restaurant and business owners, media personalities, restaurant and hotel chain executives, food writers, research chefs, food and beverage execu­tives, and culinary educators and work in all segments of the foodservice and hospi­tality industry.

Some graduates of the CIA associate degree programs in culinary arts and baking and pastry arts enter the industry as entry-level cooks, bakers, or pastry cooks for restaurants, hotels, country clubs, retail bakeries, and institutions; others choose jobs in dining room service, cater­ing, food research, or kitchen supervision. Still others choose to enroll in the college’s bachelor’s degree programs in food business management to expand their career pos­sibilities to include business management and staff management positions, as well as business ownership, communications, marketing, sales, and more. In addition, bachelor’s in culinary science graduates can pursue careers in research and develop­ment; work for large foodservice operations such as hospitals, schools, and military organizations; serve as field representa­tives; use science for creative impetus as a restaurant chef; and more.

Graduates of the Accelerated Culinary Arts Certificate Program gain hands-on culinary skill and knowledge to comple­ment their bachelor’s degree in hospitality management, food science, nutrition, or a closely related field. The program prepares them for a multitude of opportunities such as cook, research assistant, restaurant assistant manager, and other entry-level positions.

Wine and Beverage Graduate Certificate Program graduates can pursue such positions as entry-level food and beverage manager, retail wine and beverage buyer, specialty tasting room associate, or wine steward in fine dining and multi-unit restaurants. With experience, a graduate can become a wine and beverage sales representative in wholesale distribution, work as a beverage director in fine dining, or take on other positions within the food, beverage, and winery segments.

CIA programs are not designed to lead to positions, occupations, trades, or career fields that require licensing in the state of California.
