Academic Accreditation

Now that our industry is approaching 20 years in age, there are a lot of organizations that profess to offer full academic degrees in food or beverage tourism. The truth is, the available programs are inconsistent, scattered, and largely unfocused. We are working with a team of academic experts to professionalize how food and beverage tourism is both taught and learned.
