We are pleased to announce an addition to the RMU menu of partnerships! Robert Morris University Illinois has partnered with the renowned French Pastry School, located a few blocks away in Chicago. Founded in 1995, FPS offers training in Pastry/Baking, Cake, and Bread. RMU will award certificate programs through the FPS and utilize all credit earned toward the Bachelor of Professional Studies degree in Advanced Culinary Arts. This creates a seamless pathway for the FPS certificate students and offers a post-baccalaureate possibility for RMU graduates as well.
FPS co-founders, Sebastien Canonne, M.O.F., and Jacquy Pfeiffer, James Beard Award-winning author, are both recipients of the French Legion of Honour Award and were featured in the “Kings of Pastry” documentary.
The partnership will become official in February of 2019. We look forward to continuing to share news of additional collaborations in the near future.
