Escoffier and Disney Partnership

Making Dreams Come True

Play Video

My dealings with Disney have been exciting and very fast paced. My life has matured well with the industry and the experience gave me a great knowledge of corporate business.”*

Adam Ketelsen

Culinary Arts Student

In January of 2016, I decided I wanted to become a chef on a Disney cruise line. I came to the realization that you have to have a degree in culinary arts to achieve that. I decided to attend school at Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts and, little did I know, this school would set me up to work with Disney. Escoffier has set me up to reach for my dreams and, thanks to Career Services, I have accepted an internship with the Disney Culinary Program. It has definitely been a true blessing.”*
