Education partnership: McDonald's and University of Phoenix

When you’re an educated food service professional

… you employ skills that nourish your company’s success — and your own

Jobs that require you to be front and center in full-service and quick-service restaurants can be the foundation for growth in the food service industry. If you’re a professional who’s interested in a management, administration, accounting or technology position in this industry, a degree can help you develop skills to take on a bigger role.

Understanding what drives consumer behavior and having a business degree can help you devise plans to attract new customers and build loyalty while making your operations more efficient. An education can help you make sound decisions while ensuring your restaurant or catering business continues to thrive in this $400 billion industry, (SBDCnet, 2012).

McDonald's entered into an education partnership with University of Phoenix to provide an opportunity for you to improve your standing within the organization and make a bigger contribution. 

Classes available when you need them
