Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management

From meeting planning to menu planning, the skills Valencia College students gain during their courses of study are transferable around the world, which means that, upon graduation, your job could take you anywhere you want to go. Of course, starting here in Central Florida gives you quite a leg up. As one of the most diverse and expansive hospitality markets in the world, Orlando is the perfect place to start your hospitality career where jobs are plentiful and opportunities to experience the many facets of the industry are abundant. That's why we call it the world's largest learning laboratory.
