What is a diploma in food and beverage studies? Food and beverage studies look at the hospitality industry, namely at the industries that serve food. The only prerequisite is usually a high school education, and the program often lasts for approximately two years. Students study such areas as business management, accounting, business law, nutrition, basics of cooking, fundamentals of human resources, and hosting skills.

A diploma in food and beverage studies is perfect as a gateway program to a higher education. Students may be able to obtain employment upon program completion or seek a higher education by building off of the courses they have already completed.

The cost of a food and beverage studies diploma differs depending on where students enroll and the length of the program. Usually, students need only factor in the costs of tuition and textbooks, especially if courses are taken online.

Students who finish the program may be able to find jobs as food service managers, which nets an average annual salary around $52,500 as of May 2012.
