If you’re interested in a career in the culinary or hospitality fields, Northern Essex—with its affordable tuition and beautiful new facility-is the perfect place to start.

Preparing for Careers in Culinary and Hospitality:

With an education in culinary or hospitality, you can stay close to home and start your career in the Merrimack Valley or travel the globe working for restaurants, hotels, casinos, spas, cruise lines, and more.

Northern Essex offers an Associate Degree in Hospitality Management, an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts, and a Culinary Arts Certificate, and has plans to add a Certificate in Baking and Pastry.

Opened in 2020, the college’s Lupoli Family Institute of Culinary Arts is home to all culinary and hospitality programs. The institute occupies two floors in The Heights, a newly built ten-story luxury building on Merrimack Street. The space includes classrooms, laboratories, and state-of-of-the-art kitchens—as well as breathtaking views of the river.
