Make Your Executive Chef Dreams a Reality at Helms College

The program emphasizes:

  • Technical and theoretical knowledge
  • Practical applications of cooking, baking and serving
  • Management skills needed for food service jobs

Courses also include fundamental business skills such as cost control and supervising food service personnel. Becoming an executive chef means much more than cooking creative, delicious food. They are responsible primarily for overseeing the operation of a kitchen.

When you put on your chef’s hat, the responsibilities you take on extend beyond the food.

In this position, you will design the menu, review food and beverage purchases, and train the cooks under you. Some executive chefs handle administrative tasks as well, so it’s important for you to enter a professional kitchen setting confident with the control and food supervision skills you gained from our program.

The Culinary Arts Associate in Applied Science curriculum emphasizes an understanding of classical, modern, and world cuisines. The capstone course in the Helms College Associate in Applied Science Culinary Arts program is Hospitality Operations Management, which allows students to integrate competencies learned throughout the program and prepares them for success in their externship and future employment.

Integrate Competencies. Succeed in Your Externship. Work Toward Future Employment.


Take the culinary skills you learn in the classroom and apply them to real-world workplace scenarios you will face in food service jobs.
