Emperor Culinary Arts College (ECAC) is the best place for those who want to consider a profitable and sustainable career in food service industry in Nigeria. Without being immodest, ECAC is a Culinary school in a class of its own. It stands apart from all other culinary schools ever set up both in Nigeria and abroad from the standpoint of its curriculum and standards. ECAC curriculum is designed to ensure candidates are exposed to a rare combination of technical skills in culinary arts and business management/entrepreneurial expertise such that every graduate of ECAC is a potentially successful entrepreneur in food service and hospitality business. The distinguishing features of ECAC are diverse and robust. Our curriculum is deeply exciting and designed to expose candidates to the best of culinary methodologies, process costing and control, business communications and management, entrepreneurial creation and wealth management, information technology and management, leadership and strong work ethics among so many others.
Without mincing words, it may be right to say that the diverse background of the banker-turned-chef Founder of ECAC, Otunba (Chief) Abiodun Akinyele-Peter, has tremendous impact in the curriculum design and running of the school. While all other culinary and catering schools in Nigeria are founded by chefs and caterers, ECAC is founded by a Chef with very strong and solid academic and professional background. These are in addition to the varied and profoundly robust work experience in the public and private sector before launching into Quick Service Restaurant business as an operator. Our desire to see that very qualified Chefs are abundantly available in the food service and hospitality industry with many potential profitable food service industry operators is the reason for establishing ECAC. While we are doing this, we intend to ensure that the standard and quality of content delivery is raised to enviable global standard. We welcome all students to ECAC where dreams of becoming successful chefs and successful businessmen and women are being fulfilled daily. Please make good use of your time while here. We all have a duty to ensure your stay here is memorable, eventful and fun. Take advantage of all the extra-curricular activities and services offered. The General Catalog will help you along the way. It contains important information, including academic and campus policies, for which you are responsible. Please familiarize yourself with its contents and keep it with you as a future reference. Finally, never hesitate to reach out to any ECAC faculty or staff member. We are committed to your success and want your experience to be the best it could possibly be. – Abiodun Akinyele-Peter, B.Sc. ACA, MBA, ACIS, (Chairman, Emperor Group)
