    “As an alumna of CIA’s undergraduate program, I already had a deep passion for the culinary industry. When I decided to continue a path of higher education and pursue my dreams of teaching culinary arts and history, I was confident CIA’s online master’s program would give me the tools and networking opportunities to achieve my goals.” —Michelle Mallett ’08/’23
