Daniel Gomez CIA '02, SHA '07

Daniel Gomez CIA ‘02, SHA ‘07 has developed a restaurant concept with eight differently themed rooms within a single envelope.
The SHA/CIA Alliance brings together two premier institutions, The Culinary Institute of America and Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration, enabling students to, in an abbreviated timeframe (normally four to four and a half years), attain an Associate of Occupation Studies (AOS) in Culinary Arts from The Culinary Institute of America and a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Hotel Administration from the School of Hotel Administration. Students graduating from this program will have added depth to their culinary knowledge and skills, and a broader perspective about the operations and impact of foodservice across the hospitality spectrum.
