Ivy Tech announcing new Baking and Pastry concentration of Hospitality degree program

 Ivy Tech-Bloomington announced today the addition of a Baking and Pastry concentration to the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Hospitality Administration. The Hospitality degree also offers a concentration in Culinary Arts.

According to Chef Jeffrey Taber, Hospitality Program Chair, “As a baker, and former bakery owner, I am excited to offer this concentration. The job market for baking and pastry graduates goes beyond the small independent bakery.”

Restaurants, hotels, clubs, grocery stores, commercial, and independent shops are constantly seeking bakers and pastry chefs with the necessary skills and experience. This area of study is tailored to prepare a graduate to satisfy industry demands and American Culinary Federation Standards for Baker certification.

Graduates from the Hospitality Administration degree program can start careers as cooks, chefs, bakers, convention center managers, event planners, food service managers, lodging and restaurant managers.

Registration for fall classes is open, and classes begin on August 20. For more information about the Baking and Pastry concentration or the Hospitality Administration degree, contact Jeffrey Taber at (812) 330-6267 or jtaber3@ivytech.edu.
