Associate of Occupational Studies in Food and Beverage Business Management

The Associate of Occupational Studies (AOS) in Food and Beverage Business Management is a 16 month, 4-semester program that includes classroom work, intensive hands-on learning in NECI's public restaurants and operations. 

The AOS in Food and Beverage Business Management is designed to prepare qualified students to become skilled front-of-the house professionals.

Students develop an understanding of management theory as applied to the food and beverage industry, while studying the culture and trends of the hospitality field in general. Using skills learned in this program, graduates are able to perform effectively in front-of-the-house service as dining room supervisors, events managers, and reservationists. 

Educational Objectives

To achieve its primary goal of training skilled front-of-the-house professionals, NECI has established the following educational objectives:

  • To impart to students a basic theoretical knowledge of cooking
  • To provide basic practical training in cooking skills
  • To promote the development of strong managerial attributes 
  • To expand a student’s knowledge of kitchen operations, financial and human resource management, customer service, beverage management, as well as skills in writing, public speaking, and presenting, dress, and demeanor. 

These educational objectives influence all facets of the program—from the curriculum and teaching techniques, to the code of student conduct in the classroom—and serve as important guidelines for all those who study at NECI.
