The Institute of Culinary Education is dedicated to making sure that graduates get the most from their ICE education. That’s why we forged a partnership with Excelsior College that gives Hospitality Management grads the opportunity to apply their diplomas toward an associate degree from Excelsior. With an immersive campus experience in NYC and an online associate degree program that’s flexible and affordable, the new program truly gives aspiring hospitality professionals the best of both worlds.
The ICE Experience
ICE’s Hospitality Management program offers the opportunity to study with industry leaders at ICE’s brand new campus in the heart of downtown Manhattan. In addition to state-of-the-art kitchens and culinary equipment, the school’s facilities boast the nation’s first education-focused bean-to-bar chocolate lab, which is overseen by acclaimed pastry chef and ICE Creative Director Michael Laiskonis, as well as an indoor hydroponic garden. Upon graduation, ICE students receive up to 19 credits toward an associate degree from Excelsior College—providing nearly one-third of the 60 required credits.
The Excelsior Experience
Excelsior College provides students with personalized and innovative ways to earn a degree and achieve their career goals. To begin, students earn their degrees online, providing the flexibility to work and study at the same time. What’s more, students can earn credits in a variety of ways: by passing examinations in lieu of taking classes, and through work and life experience.
ICE and Excelsior want to help each student create a personalized path of study. With a budget-friendly degree program, you can focus more on the important things—classes, studying and preparing for your career in hospitality.
