              your experience, your choice.

              Johnson & Wales’ “upside-down” curriculum puts you right into courses in your major

              your first term on campus. This is different from most schools, where students typically

              spend the first two years taking general education courses. it’s also a huge advantage: you

              can discover if your major is the right fit — and if it’s not, you can switch sooner, saving

              you time and money.

              experiential education means you’ll learn by doing.

              Maybe you know that you want to work at a resort in the Caribbean or eventually open

              your own restaurant. Great — that will help you select your major, your internships

              and where you’ll study or work abroad. or maybe you don’t know yet; you’re thinking

              about something in entrepreneurship or hotel management, and you want to try as many

              different opportunities as possible. Johnson & Wales is the perfect place for you to explore

              all your options.

                “When you ask recruiters at job fairs and in interviews what’s the most
                important thing they look for when hiring, the response is almost always
                experience. attending Johnson & Wales, i’ve had numerous opportunities
                to gain that experience through directed work experiences, study abroad
                programs and internships. Participating in an internship is a great learning
                experience. it puts you in a real working setting, letting you show what you’ve
                learned and also helping you recognize where you may need to improve in
                order to achieve your goals.”
