Restaurant Management (A.A.S.)


The primary goal of the Restaurant Management program is to provide students with educational experiences that will prepare them for entry level and supervisory positions in all segments of the food service industry and/or to prepare them for additional formal education. The SUNY Cobleskill student who graduates with an Associate in Applied Science degree in Restaurant Management will build from a strong background in the liberal arts as a consequence of SUNY’s commitment to general education.
