National Advisory Board

Our close employer relationships can help turn more of our graduates into well-qualified employees.

Le Cordon Bleu prides itself in being a leader in culinary education and our ability to understand and stay current with the culinary and hospitality industries; hear what employers need and want, and what they require of candidates for positions in their establishments. This ability can better equip us to help ensure graduate and alumni success in the culinary and hospitality fields.

One of the most important ways Le Cordon Bleu stays current with industry needs and demands is through the Le Cordon Bleu National Advisory Board (NAB). The NAB is made up of independent leaders and professionals in the culinary and hospitality industries – some of whom not only follow industry trends but are also key players in setting them. The primary purpose of the board is to advise, guide and support our efforts to ensure our training reflects the current requirements of today’s culinary, hospitality and restaurant establishments. Through the NAB, we aim to strengthen employer relationships and improve employment opportunities for our graduates and alumni. The close industry relationship that the NAB provides us represents one more way Le Cordon Bleu supports not only our students’ efforts to pursue employment in the field in which they receive training, but also employers’ interests in recruiting well-qualified employees.
