I'm currently at a culinary school that offers associate degree in culinary arts and a bachelor degree in culinary arts and management. When I applied, I was told by advising to go in as an associates money wise and then before the end of my associates program ask to switch to bachelors. I'm only 2 quarters away from graduating if I were to get my associates. For me to switch to my bachelors I have to reapply to the school. My goal in the culinary world is to be a private chef and own a catering company. At the school for associates you get your basic business classes like management by menu, food and beverage, purchasing and cost control and career development and also an a la carte class. The bachelors just adds more business classes like working in america, ect. My question here is in the world of culinary which is a better degree to have associate or bachelors? Thanks!
